Discover here practical solutions to avoid an essential fatty acid deficiency and its dire effects on your health and body weight. Knowledge is power – get here the info you need to avoid the health problems linked to insufficient amounts of omega 3 fatty acids in your diet!

Did you know that…

…a lack of essential fatty acids in your diet causes you to experience a plethora of health symptoms – beyond a resistance to lose weight?

It’s true.

The horrible consequences of the official “low fat” mantra we’ve been hearing and following for decades are downright scary.

A huge amount of recent research on saturated and unsaturated fats link a highly distorted ratio of essential fatty acids in the body with a vast array of serious health conditions like…

  • chronic fatigue
  • acne, eczema, skin problems
  • foggy mind
  • depression
  • low metabolic rate
  • cardiovascular disease
  • eating disorders
  • inflammation, edema
  • obesity, weight loss resistance
  • addictive behavior
  • diabetes
  • degenerative disorders
  • compromised immunity
  • impaired motor coordination
  • various cancers
  • kidney failure
  • decreased libido/impotence
  • premature aging
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • vision problems

And there’s more, concerning our children.

In the last decade, numerous studies have proven that the lack of a sufficient supply of essential fatty acids in children impairs their brain development, with alarming consequences, like:

  • lack of concentration
  • learning difficulties
  • attention deficit disorder
  • hyperactivity
  • aggressive behavior

Do you belong to the older generation and still remember being given fish oil by the spoon when you were a child? Well, that was old wisdom at play.

As Dr. Udo Erasmus, #1 authority on fats and oils worldwide often says, “The results of an essential fatty acid deficiency are an array of serious health problems from cardiovascular disease diabetes and obesity, to depression, degenerative disorders, and cancer.”

Before learning how to avoid an essential fatty acid deficiency, don’t miss Dr. Erasmus’s eye-opening video about the dangers and widespread consequences of this serious nutritional deficiency that have created a nation of obese and unhealthy “heart-attacks-in-waiting”:

Frankly, I don’t know how much longer this video will still be available on Youtube (you know how this kind of health info is censored), so watch it now, while you can!

Another valuable resource is Dr. Erasmus’s website,, which provides a wealth of much-needed education on the “right fats diet” vs. the popular, but incredibly deceiving low fat diets.

Let’s give you now three simple tips on…

How to Avoid an Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency through Supplementation and Reverse Your Weight Loss Resistance

There are three things you should consider doing as soon as possible (as always before starting to take supplements of any kind, check with your health care provider first):

  1. Take a high-quality omega 3 supplement, like fish oil or – better yet – krill oil; it provides both EPA and DHA, the two omega 3 fatty acids required for optimal health. Ann Louise Gittleman, well-known nutritionist in the U.S. and author of the popular Eat Fat, Lose Weight and The Fat Flush Plan recommends “the supplementation with omega 3 oils to the diets of all individuals who are suffering from obesity and diabetes.”
  2. Take GLA (gamma linolenic acid) – the omega-6 fatty acid found primarily in borage & evening primrose oils. Why? Because it’s been proven that up to 2 grams of GLA taken two times per day stop fat accumulation and make you full and satisfied longer after a meal. In fact, according to Dr. Horrobin, former professor of medicine at the University of Montreal, borage oil is “a safe, non-drug way to stimulate the body’s metabolic activity and burn off fat.”
  3. Add CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) to your diet, as it makes your body burn more fat and increases your muscle mass. This, in turn, makes you burn even more calories.
    Study after study continually show CLA’s great value in reducing body fat. According to the Journal of Nutrition, taking 3 to 6 grams of CLA daily lowers your body fat with a whopping 20% – without any other change in your diet.

If you’d like to read a longer article on omega 3 fatty acids, go to University of Maryland Medical Center website – you’ll find more details about dire effects of an essential fatty acid deficiency and tons of supporting research on the clinical uses of omega 3 fatty acids for each of the health problems listed above (high cholesterol and blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, osteoporosis, depression, bipolar disorder, ADD/ADHD, schizophrenia, cognitive decline, skin disorders, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), asthma, macular degeneration and various cancers).

However, this article talks only about fish oil; the latest research shows that krill oil is, in fact, superior.
