Healthy mom eating good Fats

Why You Need Good Fats in Your Diet 

You’ve probably heard of low-carb high-fat diets, but even if you aren’t on one you still need plenty of fats in your diet. Eating fats won’t make you fat if you choose them wisely. Sure, loading up on fried foods and cupcakes probably isn’t the best way to stay healthy, but your body needs healthy fats to function properly. By finding ways to incorporate foods such as nuts, fish and oils into your family’s diet and consulting with a nutrition coach, you can make sure your family gets the nutrition they need!

Why You Need Good Fats

Good fats are especially important for healthy moms. As a mother, you need plenty of energy, and you need to keep your brain sharp to take care of your kids, your house, your job and anything else that’s important to you. Motherhood requires endless multitasking. 60% of your brain is made up of fats, so healthy fats are vital to supplying energy to the brain and improving mental sharpness. Many vitamins are also fat-soluble, meaning that your body won’t absorb certain vitamins if you don’t eat enough good fats. 

The Dilemma

Many people are busy or haven’t spent a ton of time looking into the exact nutritional science of what they eat. As a result, it’s easy to fall into the trap of feeling like fats will make you fat and eliminating them, or of eating too many of the wrong kinds of fats. Catering to a full family’s dietary needs can also make it hard to incorporate good fats effectively.

How Do You Make Sure You Get Enough Healthy Fats?

Know What Kind of Fats to Eat

Good fats are typically saturated fats, so make sure to check the food label. Unsaturated and trans fats won’t provide as many health benefits. Foods containing omega-3 fatty acids are frequently your best bet. Common sources of good fats include:

o Nuts, nut butters and seeds

o Fatty fish such as salmon

o Cooking oils such as olive oil

o Avocado 

Incorporate These Foods In Your Current Lifestyle

A complete diet overhaul might seem overwhelming, but it’s easy to do little things such as snacking on nuts or fruit with nut butters, cooking with healthy oils instead of butter and incorporating fish entrees a few times a week.

Find A Nutrition Coach

Setting up an ideal meal plan for your family that will work with picky eaters and limited time can be tough. Nutrition coaching for moms can help with these problems by looking at your individual situation and needs. Taking your preferences into account, nutrition coaches can design a personalized meal plan with foods you enjoy. They can also consider factors such as nutritional needs for growing children, the ideal macro breakdown for you as an individual, health conditions such as diabetes, allergies and anything else that might affect your family’s diet. 

Healthy moms want healthy meals for their families, but it’s so much more complicated to cook for many people than to cook for just yourself. Incorporating more good fats into your diet can make it easier to get everything done since your body will absorb the vitamins it needs to function properly and your brain health will benefit. However, every person and family is unique and needs to find a meal program that makes sense for them. Nutrition coaching for moms is a great way to make sure the whole family stays healthy and gets the nutrients they need, so try consulting with a nutrition coach!

Thank You Vilmos!

When I decided to improve my health I reach out to Vilmos, to be honest, I was a little skeptical. I lost weight in the past using weight watchers a few times, and I was curious about his approach. However, it turns out the investment was worth it because I lost over forty pounds in six months, but this time I’m confident I can keep it off. I learned so much about myself in the last 6 months. I even saw improvement in other areas of my life.

Full of energy and loving it.

THANK YOU, Vilmos!!! Your program improved my habits and my body, and I continue to improve my habits every day. I can’t thank Vilmos enough for caring, understanding, and holding me accountable to make sure I stay on the path to success.

I tried a few diets in the past that lead to frustration and stress — I lost some weight but I became emotional like anyone really needs that. I was referred to Vilmos, and after our discovery meeting, everything clicked. I’m really enjoying the supplements Vilmos created for me.

Vilmos saved my life. For over 20 years i suffered with fibromyalgia that lead me to medication. 20 years after taking my first medication for the fibromyalgia, I end up 20 years later on a total of 8 medication for allergies, ulcer, blood-pressure and a lot of nutrition deficiency’s plus 30 pounds. My blood work from my doctor only got worst after trying different weight loss program and counting calories. After talking with Vilmos I realize he was the right person to help me. For him it was consistency, not a quick fix, which was hard for me because i’m not great with change. After focusing on my ulcer the first 3 days I can tell the difference, I was sold. Six months later my doctor took me off of 5 medication because my blood work was that good and I loss 25 lbs and that is hard for someone that’s about to hit 70 years old. Today i’m taking my custom cocktail supplement Vilmos had created for me to address my vitamins deficiency, trim tea to help with weight loss and ultimate aloe for my digestive system. Today I’m eating healthier and have a lot of energy, so I can’t help but refer people to him, he is great at what he does. Thank you Vilmos, I am you’re number one fan!

I've been searching for awhile for supplements that would help me reach my goal! Things have to really impress me for me give a review but this works so it's easy to do! Vilmos and his team are Bert knowledgeable and the products have really helped me and now my wife! I was the Ginny pig lol!

I discussed my health concerns and goals with Vilmos. I wanted improvement in joint health, good overall circulation, and hopefully to lose a few pounds. At his recommendation, I began the MultiVitamin, and later added Isotonix OPC-3 , and Bromelain Plus. Vilmos is very knowledgeable, and I appreciate that he explains in detail what is in the supplement and how it targets the problem. I believe these products are helping to eliminate my inflammation, improving my joint function; and I definitely plan to continue this program.

I love taking the Daily essentials pack, it was recommended by Vilmos because I was having issues with being tired a lot and feeling low with energy. Since I have been taking it i feel like my rest is actually making a difference. I do not feel tired all day any more It has helped me in ways I can't even describe. Love love it....
