I'm quite confused with the whole omega 3 and 6 situation. Which is better 3 or 6 or does food come in both combination? Do nuts only have omega 6 and are they bad? What about avo? Sorry a bit lost on the situation of omegas
I want to give a warning here that if you are the orthorexic type that gets stressed out by health information, skip this one. Eating a healthy, whole foods vegan diet is wonderful for health, and there’s no need to analyze everything to death.
There’s been evidence suggesting that improper omega 3:6 ratios are contributing factors to inflammation (and inflammation being the cause for various diseases that are more common in countries consuming the Western diet.) Of course, mainly this is due to people consuming lots of refined cheap oils, which are super high in omega 6, which throws the balance way off. However, consuming lots of nuts and seeds can also cause a higher than desirable omega 3:6 balance.
Here’s a quick breakdown:
There’s monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and saturated fats. Among polyunsaturated fats, there are omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fatty acids. Monounsaturated fats are also called omega 9 fatty acids.
The guidance I follow is based on stuff I’ve read by Jeff Novick:
omega 3: minimum of 1.1g for women, 1.6g for men
omega 6: no more than 4x the amount of omega 3
saturated fat: less than 5% of total calories
Avocado and olives are higher in monounsaturated fats. Most nuts and seeds (except chia, flax and hemp) are far higher in omega 6 than omega 3. Walnuts are sometimes cited as a good source for omega 3, but even they have ratio of 4.2 to 1 of omega 6 to omega 3, in other words, while they wouldn’t throw off the desired ratio, they wouldn’t help to balance out an imbalance. Vegetables and leafy greens in particular, as well as chia, flax or hemp are good sources of omega 3.
As a result of all of this, what I’m choosing to do in terms of overt fats is this: I use 1 cup almond milk in morning coffee (just because I prefer the taste), 1 tsp coconut butter (just ground coconut) in oatmeal, 1 tbsp chia mixed with ½ tsp brazil nut butter (just ground brazil nuts - for selenium). I don’t track my levels every day, it’s just based on things I already like anyway. If I eat this with rice, sweet potatoes or potatoes and vegetables, it comes out to about 10% fat and proper omega ratios.
