  • Good fats IN FOODS can be consumed daily – avocados (1/2 avocado), raw nuts (< palm full) and seeds, olives, greens, 2-3 tablespoons of flax seed or chia seeds daily is encouraged. (If you want to reduce insulin resistance quick hold the nuts and avocados until your blood sugar starts to drop).
