- Quality is paramount. Because toxins are stored in fat, if budgeting food dollars, spend extra on high-quality fats and animal protein rather than worrying about organic produce.
- Having a good mix of all three types of fatty acid (saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated) in your diet is critical to maintaining good health.
- Store less stable vegetable oils in the refrigerator in tightly sealed containers that don't allow light. Never store oils near the stove.
- Scrupulously avoid any kind of trans fats: partially or fully hydrogenated oils of any kind. These are found in many processed and packaged food products, so avoiding them completely is your best bet.
- When cooking, never let a fat or oil smoke. This means it has gone rancid.
- Increase your consumption of omega-3s as much as possible by increasing the use of foods high in this fatty acid and considering supplementation. Strive for a one-to-one ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 in your diet.
