It’s chronic inflammation – what causes it
Consumption of heated, rancid vegetable oils
A stressful lifestyle and
All 3 of these can make fat cells resistant to dying!
1. Limit Exposure to Rancid Oils – What is that?
Canola, Safflower, Peanut, Soybean and Sunflower Oils.Which all contain omega 6-rich, inflammatory polyunsaturated fats. These are commonly used in restaurants and are in comfort foods like french fries, pizza, chicken wings, packaged sushi and even trail mix
Over-consuming omega 6 fats and under-consuming omega 3 fats significantly increases:
Type 2 diabetes
Metabolic syndrome or pre-diabetes
Irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammatory bowel syndrome
Macular degeneration (eye damage and blindness)
As you can see, a diet high in omega 6 fats is not ideal for optimal health.
What types of oils and fats should we choose that protect our heart and brain and reduce inflammation?
Extra-virgin, cold-pressed, organic coconut oil, Extra-virgin, cold-pressed, organic olive oil, along with Grass Fed Ghee, butter and tallow are great cooking options too. Fatty fish—sardines, mackerel, herring and wild salmon—that are rich in omega 3 fats. Along with grass fed meats and avocado.
2. Control Chronic Stress
Every time you’re stressed, your adrenal glands release adrenaline and cortisol, and as a result, glucose (your primary source of energy) is released into your bloodstream. All of this is done to give you the energy you need to escape from a risky situation – known as the fight or flight response.
Viscous cycle – get stressed, release cortisol, gain weight, crave more sugar, eat more sugar, gain more weight.
3. Make Sleep a Priority (Check out Episode 21)
Research shows that getting between 4-5 hours of sleep per night causes insulin resistance and high glycemic variability leading to diabetes, cravings and weight gain
What to do? Turn off phone, Don’t eat close to bed and sleep in a cool environment
So there you have it! Eliminate chronic inflammation by avoiding veggie oils, controlling chronic stress and making sleep a priority!
These three steps will go a long way to help you optimize your health and reach your weight loss goals. Thanks so much for listening!

Hello, and welcome to the get lean and eat clean podcast. My name is Brian grin. I’m a certified health coach, trainer and author. This podcast is for middle-aged men and women looking to optimize their health and get their bodies back to what it once was 10 to 15 years ago. I will give you simple, actionable items to get long-term sustainable results. Thanks for listening and enjoy the show.
All right, welcome to the get lean eat clean podcast. My name is Brian grin. Hope you’re having a great Tuesday. And today we are going to discuss this one thing that doesn’t always get discussed. When you talk about losing weight and losing fat. Now it’s not excess calories. It’s not chocolate gluten or even carbs. It’s chronic inflammation. Now what causes chronic inflammation, these a lot of things, but these are my top three consumption of heated rancid, vegetable oils, a stressful lifestyle and sleep deprivation. So if you can focus on at least limiting your exposure of all three of these, it can go a long way. Now, step one would be eliminating rancid vegetable oils.
1 (1m 17s):
Now, how do we do this? Well, a lot of times restaurants are cooking in these, right? So if we can ask for them to not cook and things like canola oil, safflower, peanut soybean, and sunflower oils, that can go a long way. Cause all of these contain Omega six, rich inflammatory poly unsaturated fats who FAS, which you’ve probably heard a lot if you’re listening to a lot of health podcasts. So again like, like I said, these are commonly used in restaurants and they’re in comfort foods like French fries, pizza, chicken wings, I know packaged sushi and even trail mix. So do your best to try to at least limit exposure to these oils because consuming over consuming Omega sixes and under consuming Omega threes can increase your chances of heart disease type two diabetes metabolic syndrome, you know, obviously obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, so on and so forth.
1 (2m 19s):
So obviously as you can see, Omega six fats are not ideal for our health. You are going to have some in your diet, but essentially you want to increase Omega threes. Now, how can we do that? Well, first of all, we can cook in things like geek and butter grass fed butter, as opposed to these oils, even tallow. Now I would also recommend like a cold press, organic coconut oil and an extra Virgin cold pressed organic olive oil. You can use that. I would say use olive oil, maybe to drizzle on food. And I would say cook with key and butter and tallow.
1 (2m 59s):
They higher cook that can cook at higher temperatures. And it’s, it’s much better to use those as opposed to using olive oil for cooking. Now also fatty fishes, sardines, mackerel hearing and wild salmon are great, are great ways to get Omega threes. Now also grass fed meats, grass fed grass, finished meats, which is something I’ve gotten into a lot over the last six to eight months. And I love having out of avocado as well to a meal. So these are ways to sort of take down the level of Omega sixes that you’re getting from these rancid vegetable oils and increase.
1 (3m 41s):
Omega-threes now step number two. Now chronic stress is something that obviously we all can deal with from time to time, but you know, stress is, it can be a good thing, but let’s find ways to eliminate it. Not all the way, but chronic stress. If we could eliminate chronic stress, something that comes on all the time. Cause every time you’re stressed, your adrenal glands release adrenaline and cortisol. And as a result, glucose, your primary source of energy is released into your bloodstream. All of this has done to give you this energy to escape from a risky situation, even if you’re not in a risky situation. So it’s our fight or flight response.
1 (4m 21s):
So things that I do to release stress, read, I just got into painting. I also like to do meditation and yoga. So maybe pick one thing and just stick with it for awhile and you don’t have to do it for that long 10, 20 minutes a day. And it can go a long way and to help reducing stress because what’s happening is there’s this vicious cycle where you get stressed, you release cortisol, you gain weight and then you start craving right craving sugar. And then when you start eating sugar, obviously that can help put on weight. So it’s that vicious cycle that we just want to avoid. Now, step number three is something that I talked about in episode number 21.
1 (5m 3s):
So check it out and making sleep a priority. I’ll probably repeat this a lot throughout my podcast because I think it’s that important research shows that getting between four and five hours of sleep per night can help cause insulin resistance and high glycemic variability, meaning high spikes in your blood sugar, from different foods and things like that. So it’s going to obviously lead to diabetes and many cravings and weight gain. Okay. So I think you all understand if you listen to my podcast, how making a sleep a priority can make can go a long way. I mentioned in episode 21, things that you can do, obviously turning off blue light at least an hour before bedtime, you know, your phones and computers and things like that.
1 (5m 48s):
I would not recommend eating too close to bedtime and also sleeping in a cool environment are probably my top three tips to get better sleep. So if you want more check out episode 21. So really there you have it, those three things, those three things, write those down to eliminate chronic inflammation, avoid vegetable oils, control chronic stress and make sleep a priority. If you just focus on those three things like for the whole year, it’s going to make an impact on your health and it’s going to help you reach your weight loss goals. So that’s all I have for you today. Thanks so much for listening. Feel free to share this with anyone you think that would help you know, that this is looking to optimize their health and reduce inflammation.
