General Discussion / Re: Omega3 DHA eggs?
« on: March 07, 2023, 05:14:40 am »
I am wondering why it is so hard to find pasture raised eggs fed fishmeal instead of corn and soy and get the best of both worlds when it comes to eggs?  Supposedly there are sustainable sources of fishmeal that can be used for chicken feed.

General Discussion / Are PUFA's in nuts really bad?
« on: March 06, 2023, 05:49:40 am »
Do you really need to worry about the omega 6's in nuts?  When you do a search online about nuts, and the omega 6's and PUFA's in them you would think nuts are terrible things but I find this hard to believe.  I am on keto diet for mental health.  I actually need to gain weight so it is not for weight loss at all.  However, I don't eat processed anything (including olive oil).  I don't eat dairy either and have recently cut out eggs for a few reasons. I have been suffering from terrible digestion after an emergency surgery on my stomach five years ago. My keto/dairy free/egg free/pescatarian diet leaves me with avocados and nuts for fat and I need a lot of fats because seafood has little.  I eat raw, unpasteurized walnuts (about 2-2.5oz per day) and sometimes pecans.  I'm thinking of trying macadamias but I think the walnuts really have a lot of good things in them like folate.  Are PUFA omega 6's harmful or it just the processed, damaged PUFA's that are causing imflammation?  Are these studies done on people eating raw organic nuts in their whole form?  I recently had an omega fatty acid test done.  My ratio is 4.5 to 1.  I am in the desirable range for DHA and EPA omega 3's.  I do have high LA however.  But is this a bad thing?  I find it hard to keep a 1:1 ratio if I need nuts and avocados for fat.
