oils by skin type

oils have been integral to my skin routine for 4 years & my skin has been consistently clear & glowing! the oils essential to my routine are argan oil, avocado oil, olive oil, & almond oil. 

if you have dry skin (like me!) using oil to cleanse / moisturize with helps hydrate the skin, which helps prevent clogged & irritated pores. if you have oily skin, using oil to cleanse / moisturize with helps reduce your skin’s instinct to overproduce oil, which helps reduce clogged pores, blackheads / whiteheads, & inflammation. for every skin type, oils naturally help prevent & reduce lines, scarring, & environmental damage

What is Lucid Dreaming?

Lucid dreaming is when you are in a dream but fully aware that you are in a dream, leading to you often being able to control the outcomes or certain aspects of the dream. You are able to live your fantasies and also are more likely to remember your dreams come morning.

With work Lucid dreaming can be improved into astral projection via sleep or dream walking where you can exit your dreams to enter the dreams of others or walk about the “dream plane”. Skilled lucid dreamers also often use their dreams for divination and problem solving due to how vivid they are and how it is easier to remember them.

Herbs for Lucid Dreaming: African Dream Bean, Blue Lotus, *Datura, *Mexican Dream Herb, Lavender, Mugwort, Rose Buds, Valerian Root, Wild Asparagus

Crystals for Lucid Dreaming: Albite, Angel Phantom Quartz, Danburite, Herkimer Diamond, Lazulite, Moonstone, Rhodonite, Scolecite

Foods for Lucid Dreaming: Almonds, Bananas, Cherries, Chicken, Kidney Beans, Lamb, Oats/Oatmeal, Pumpkin/Pumpkin Seeds, Rice, Soybeans and Tofu, Sunflower Seeds, Tomatoes, Turkey

Essential Oils for Lucid Dreaming: Lavender, Mugwort, Patchouli, Rose

Other things to achieve Lucid Dreaming:

  • Keep a dream journal and write in it regularly.
  • Interpret the meanings behind your dreams after recording them
  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoking cigarettes before bed
  • Keep a regular sleeping schedule
  • Sleep in complete darkness if possible
  • Meditate before going to sleep
  • Openly state before you go to bed “I will lucid dream tonight” and repeat this either out-loud or in your mind as you get ready for bed. When you lay in bed continue focused on that in your mind
  • Along with that before bed tell yourself, preferably in a mirror if it helps, that you will remember your dreams come morning
  • Do “reality checks” meaning in your dream check to see if you are dreaming. If you see mirrors, see if you can see the background behind you or if it is misty/blurry. If see a clock look at it, look away, then look back, often in dreams the time will change. This is the same for signs and street signs. You can also before going to bed mark up your hand with ink and in your dream look down and see if it is there still. If its not you know you’re dreaming. Look down at your feet, often in dreams they will seem oddly unfocused. If you see a bookshelf, see if any of the book titles are visible or repeat.

Okay, I know I am dreaming, now what do I do?

Well now you practice. It is rare to immediately be able to control your dreams completely. To gain full control you need to practice. Start small and take baby steps. Try hopping in place in your dream, see if you can make yourself hover for even just a second. Keep at it, try to float in place longer and longer with each jump. In time and with practice and patience you will be able to soar through your dreams one night and it’s easy from there. If you come across a locked door try opening it while saying out loud “this door is unlocked”. Keep at it, because hopefully you will be able to open it soon enough.

Start talking to the ‘characters’ in your dreams. Try to influence their behavior such as suggesting they do something. You can also approach a ‘stranger’ in your dream and see what happens if you state that you two are friends. If they start acting as if they know you and are indeed your friend, you know you have improved your control.

Take notes in your dream journal on these tests. Write down if they failed or succeeded and keep at it. With time you will be able to change things in your dreams with ease.

The Positives of Lucid Dreaming:

  • You can control your dreams! That is just awesome, you can live out things you can’t do in real life.
  • Prevent or stop nightmares, when you are lucid dreaming you can just tell whatever is causing you the nightmare to ‘fuck off’ and usually they will. Nightmares can be quickly changed into enjoyable dreams
  • From my personal experience and experiences of others, after a lucid dream you feel more awake and alive come morning, it’s almost energizing to wake up from
  • Its calming, I can relieve my stresses from the day and not worry about them in my dreams
  • You can attempt to solve your real life struggles in your dreams or making plans
  • Eventually you can work your way to Astral Travel and Dream Walking
  • Using your dreams for divination
  • Improve sleep, many people who lucid dream fall asleep faster and deeper than most people leading to them having improved sleep patterns and habits
  • For artists and story writers, dreams can really inspire you and help you test out your ideas
  • Deity communication, for those who do worship deities you can communicate or even interact with them in your dreams if you welcome them in.
  • Spirit and entity communication, just like deities lucid dreamers can interact with entities in their dreams by letting them in. Many lucid dreamers interact with their guides and guardians through dreams as well

Happy Dreaming everyone~

Meal Plan Tips!

This is what I use as a guide for my diet plan. I am actually pretty picky myself so my diet consists of mostly the same foods all the time, but it’s good to switch it up! The stuff in bold is what I prefer lol like I said this is a “guide” and the key is to make sure you are eating clean and well rounded. My sister wrote this plan for me as she is a personal trainer and nutritionist. Don’t be afraid to be creative and try new things! You will find what works best for you.  

PROTEINS

  • Chicken Breast (Boneless/Skinless)
  • Turkey Breast
  • Lean Ground Turkey
  • Salmon
  • Tuna
  • Top Round Steak
  • Top Sirloin Steak
  • Lean Ground Beef
  • Lean Ham
  • Egg Whites or Substitutes
  • Non-fat Cottage Cheese
  • Ahi
  • Pork Tenderloin
  • Filet Mignon
  • Tofu
  • High Quality Protein Powder

**Remember Muscle=Metabolism! Every time you eat protein you are feeding your muscles which speeds up your metabolism.

***BUT don’t over eat your protein and always try to eat the leanest kinds of protein. The more you are working out, the more protein you should have in your diet.

VEGETABLES

**You can eat as many green veggies as you want all day long!

  • Broccoli-My personal favorite.
  • Asparagus
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Green Beans
  • Green Peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomatoes
  • Peas
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Artichoke
  • Cabbage
  • Celery-VERY good for weight loss.
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumber
  • Onion
  • Bell Peppers
  • Squash

**Always try to eat fresh veggies! Frozen is ok but canned is not great.

***Try to stay away from corn, it is a vegetable BUT your body can’t process it very well and it slows down your metabolism.

Carbohydrates

(1 serving=the size of your clenched fist)

  • Red Baked Potato
  • Sweet Potato
  • Yams
  • Pumpkin- Another favorite! Add a little cinnamon and a dash of stevia to kill a sweet tooth!
  • Steamed Brown Rice
  • Steamed Wild Rice
  • Whole Wheat Pasta
  • Oatmeal (plain!!! Not packaged! Add fruit if you can’t eat it plain.)
  • Beans (black, garbanzo, pinto, or kidney)
  • Strawberries
  • Apples
  • Melons
  • Oranges
  • ½ banana
  • Greek Yogurt (nonfat)
  • Whole Wheat bread
  • High Fiber Cereal
  • Rice Cakes
  • Whole Grains
  • Cream of Wheat

**Make sure you cut your carbs out after 5pm and stay away from white carbs (white rice, white bread, white tortilla, etc.)

Good Fat Sources

**Use these sparingly but make sure to include some in your diet. The earlier in the day you eat these is better!

  • ½ Avocado
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Cold Water Fish (Tuna, Salmon, etc.)
  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Almond Butter!
  • Low-Fat Cheese
  • Low-Fat Salad Dressing (Balsamic Vinaigrette or and Vinaigrette is good!)
  • Raw Nuts
  • Olives
  • Olive Oil (Cook with this NO BUTTER!!)
  • Safflower Oil
  • Canola Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Flax Seed Oil (The healthiest!)

**These are your EFA’s (Essential Fatty Acids) the more you workout the better it is to have these because it helps you burn bad fats more efficiently.

FOODS TO AVOID!!!

  • BUTTER
  • FRIED ANYTHING!
  • MAYONNAISE
  • SWEETS
  • WHOLE FAT DAIRY PRODUCTS
  • SOUR CREAM

NOTES TO REMEMBER

**Drink lots of water! Always have water in your hand! You should be going to the bathroom every 15-20 minutes. Lol. DO NOT drink soda or juices or energy drinks. You can drink unsweetened green tea. Your urine should be very light colored.

**Prepare your meals ahead of time so they are ready when it is time to eat.

**Eat every 3 hours to make sure you are keeping your metabolism high! Make sure you are consuming protein every 3 hours.

**Eat before you get hungry!! This will prevent you from overeating.

***Remember no carbs at dinner!

***HAVE A CHEAT DAY! Take one day off a week so that your body has to keep guessing and you don’t plateau. This also helps you stay motivated.

6 MEALS A DAY

Breakfast: 1 Protein, 1 Carb, 1 EFA (Good Fat)

(3 hours later…)

Snack: Protein Shake (You can also have a handful of raw almonds or veggies)

(3 hours later…)

Lunch: 1 Protein, 1 Carb, Veggies, 1 EFA (Good Fat)

How to Eat Paleo as a single person on about $5/day

This is super off topic for this blog, but…

I did this for about a year in college. Last night at the LGBTQ center we were talking about healthy eating and I mentioned it, and was challenged to bring in a shopping list/meal plan detailing what I had done.

What I consider Paleo: I lived on my own version of paleo, which I called “Functional Paleo.” I defined this as “no grain, no dairy, no legumes, no refined carbs, and no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or preservatives.” It is not organic, the meat is not free range, and I did not use coconut or other substitute flours for anything (except when cooking for my parents or special occasions). I bought very few things that had multiple ingredients, but didn’t concern myself too much with small amounts of soy or sugar (like in the tuna, stewed tomatoes, or condiments).

My other caveat is that I had (and continue to have) an Aldi near me. All prices cited are Aldi prices as they exist today (though prices can be similar at other value food stores like Marc’s and Save a Lot). You can actually do paleo significantly cheaper than this if you have to, but this level provided enough variety for me to not flip my kitchen table on a regular basis. This is what I did personally.

***Items listed are “Per Week” unless otherwise specified***

Protein:

  • Eggs- 2 dozen, about $1 (Aldi eggs cost anywhere from 20c to $1.29/dozen, usually on the lower end of that with a limit of six dozen per costomer. I used 50c/dozen here as a good average)
  • Meat- 2lbs of either chicken breast, stew meat, or chorizo, about $8 (get the middle-range (Never Any! brand) chicken, its the same price as the low range if you factor in that the low range has 15% broth in it by weight, which will cook out anyway).
  • Tuna: 2 cans, packed in water, about $1.40

Vegetables:

  • Sale veggie- 2 pkg, about $3 total
  • Cauliflower- 1 large, 1.79
  • Broccoli- 1 bag, 1.50
  • Stewed tomatoes- 2 cans, $1 total
  • 3lb Onions- $1.50 (every other week)
  • 3lb Sweet potatoes- $2
  • 10lb Russet potatoes- $3 (once per month)

Fruits:

  • Sale fruit- 2 or 3 pkg, about $4 total
  • Canister Prunes or Raisins- $3 
  • Frozen fruit of choice- $2

Nuts:

  • Whole raw almonds- 1pkg, $5

Other:

  • Dark Chocolate- 1 large bar, $1.50
  • Tea- 100 tea bags, $2 (once in a blue moon)
  • Instant Coffee- 120 cups worth, $3 (once in a blue moon)
  • Olive or sunflower seed oil- $3 (once per month or so)
  • Salt- one large canister iodized or box kosher, $2 (literally once per lifetime)
  • Condiments (I excepted these from paleo rules for my own sanity) mayo, ketchup, pickles, mustard, etc…- $1-$2 per item (once in a blue moon)
  • Dried spices- $1 each (get a good blend for about $2-$3 at Wal Mart or collect them separately and make lots of your own $1/spice) (once in a blue moon)
  • Vinegar of choice- $3 (once per month or longer, depending on how much you like vinegar)
  • Bouillon cubes- $2.50 (once in a blue moon)

Assuming you’re starting with an utterly bare cabinet and you buy all of the “once in a blue moon” and “once per month” items on your first trip (including condiments and spices), your initial investment will probably be about $50-60. After that first week, assuming you keep to the intervals outlined here, it should average a little less than $35

Meal Prep Tips:

  • Boil most of the eggs, leave a couple for if you like fried eggs occasionally or want to make banana-egg pancakes. You can easily take boiled eggs in a lunchbox or eat them with prunes or raisins for a quick breakfast.
  • The prunes/raisins and almonds were and still are my go-to easy breakfast.
  • Grate the cauliflower- steam it with salt, oil and spices as a side later or mix it with the crumbled chorizo for a 1-bowl meal
  • Cook the sweet potatoes and regular potatoes ahead of time. There are lots of ways to do this and they are all delicious. They are also easy to pack in a lunch box.
  • Hard veggies like carrots, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and broccoli are AMAZING when tossed in olive oil, salt, and spices and roasted or broiled.
  • Cook and pull the chicken (easiest in a pressure cooker but you can also boil the crap out of it too). Makes it super versatile. You can make like 10 different things with it and they will all feel different. No more plain chicken boob for you!
  • Stew with the stew meat, any veggies (including onions and potatoes) and spices will give you many easy future meals and can be made with just about anything you’ve got (throw the stewed tomatoes in this too).
  • Tuna salad (with oil and vinegar and spices if you’re really feeling paleo or mayo, onions and pickles if you’re me) and leftover roasted veggies make a great lunch.

On carrier oils

Someone asked me a few days ago if I could make a post with a list of carrier oils, so I promised I’d do so. 

What are carrier oils?

Carrier oils, also called base oils or cold-pressed vegetable oils, are derived from the fatty portion of plants.

How to use them?

Their use is implied in the name. These base oils ( or vegetable oils) are called as “carrier”, because they help to dilute an essential oil by then *carrying* it for use on skin, use on hair, etc–since essential oils are highly concentrated and can be irritating if used alone. Carrier oils can also be used alone. 

The eight oils pictured above are what I use in my skincare regimen (sweet almond oil & grapeseed oil only) and hair care regimen. Note: Yes, I use both types of castor oils. I initially used the Home Health brand, but then experimented with JBCO to see any differences. However, they work the same. So now, the clear variety is really just used for deep conditioning purposes, and the JBCO is used for my hot oil treatments (since it’s a lot more expensive for a such a small bottle). Trying to be economical here, and not wasteful! lol.

Below is not a complete, exhaustive list–but it’s pretty extensive! Maybe some of us can try experimenting, too! I’m thinking of giving a few new oils a try in the future.

What kind of foods help reduce acne

foods that reduce acne:

  1. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids: these are very healthy fats found abundantly in fish, like salmon, as well as walnuts, many types of bean, and flaxseed. These fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties which help prevent inflammation that causes your skin to react by clogging pores leading to acne.
  2. Vitamin A: this vitamin is essential in combating acne and having good skin health. It’s a major component to lots of serious acne medications (such as Isotretinoin - brand name Accutane/Roaccutane so don’t take vitamin A supplements if you’re on Accutane, since it can cause toxicity). A good source of vitamin A are: sweet potatoes, carrots, dark leafy greens (e.g. kale). Cod liver oil is an amazing source of not only vitamin A, but also vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids!
  3. Zinc-rich foods: I wouldn’t take this as a supplement because you can easily overdose and cause toxicity, but incorporating zinc rich foods into your diet can definitely help with acne. You’ll mostly find these in nuts like cashews, oysters (and seafood in general), spinach, and pumpkin seeds to name a few. 
  4. Switch to whole grains/low GI carbs: whole grains are lower on the glycemic index which means it’s a type of carb that doesn’t spike your blood sugar levels as much as other carbs which are higher on the GI. However, you should be aware that some whole grain breads are high on the GI. Keep a look out for that too. When foods cause your blood sugar levels to increase rapidly, the hormone insulin is secreted into your blood. Insulin is linked to the growth of pore-clogging cells, as well as increasing oil production in your skin cells - which is not good at all!
  5. Vitamin C rich foods: like avocado, strawberries, and citrus fruit all have very beneficial anti-inflammatory properties due to their vitamin C content. 
  6. Vitamin E rich foods: like dark leafy greens, almonds, sunflower seeds, avocado (again!), olive oil, and broccoli, to name a few. 
  7. Green tea: green tea on it’s own won’t help if the rest of your diet is full of dairy and saturated fats, but it has an antioxidant called epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which has many functions, some of which are:
      • lowering androgen hormone (IGF-1 hormone) levels which are major factors towards acne production.
      • kills certain bacteria which are culprits when it comes to acne production. 
      • lowers your fasting blood sugar, which as I stated before, if rapidly increases, it causes an increase in insulin levels in the bloodstream which can be a factor towards acne production.

Hope this helps you with your diet! Don’t forget to stay hydrated as well!

Carrier Oils

Everyone always stresses on and on about essential oils, when you go to check magical properties of stuff you see magical oils.
But what about carrier oils?

What if you want to make an ointment, a perfume or any type of magic that calls for an oil base?

So here are a few oils (I always believe you don’t need an infnite pantry of stuff, just a few, trusted, easily available and not overly expensive items) to use.
I’ve mixed and matched some correspondences I’ve found online, with my feelings about it, I’ve only listed oils that are easy for me to get a hold of (so I think this will be the same for everyone). If you want more you can google more :)

Sunflower seed oil - fertility, health, wisdom, clairvoyance, Sun, high spiritual vibration, meditation, protection, success

Jojoba oil - Stability, glamour, sensuality, healing, sympathetic magic, flying salves, shapeshifting

Sweet Almond oil - prosperity, wisdom, love, love that overcomes obstacles, air, money, Artemis

Olive oil - healing, protection, abundance, balance, fertility, fidelity, harmony, hope, longevity, peace, power, prosperity, rebirth, reconciliation, safety, success, victory, sun, moon, Athena

Rose hip oil (or chamellia)- beauty love, joy, secrecy, generosity, heart chackra, Venus

Sesame oil - prosperity, abundance, healing, love hope to the sick, the discouraged, the lonely

Grapeseed oil - fertility, prosperity, water, intuition, money, extasy, divination, Bacchus

Baby (mineral) oil - I’ve seen this one named often, in videos or posts of people who “made an oil” for this or that purpose. If baby oil is mineral oil (aka made from byproduce of Oil), that’s not a great oil… not for your skin, not for you baby (!!!), not for your positive spells, but I’ve found it indicated for curses. That feels right!

Potion to Repel Nightmares

Ingredients:

  • Lavender oil, preferably as a pre-diluted oil for cenvenience
  • Ground cloves
  • Primrose flowers, dried or fresh

This potion is not for consumption!

This one is real easy to make. Just get a little container, a small glass or a little bowl or one of those little condiment holders, and add in a nice little pile of your spice, then a few flowers, and enough oil to coat both things. 

Carefully swirl the oil around in the container, or stir if you’d prefer, then place it somewhere near where you sleep, but not where it might get knocked over in the night!

I personally like to place it where it’ll be in the moonlight, but that is completely optional.

For added power, leave a few things that you like around the container!


Explanation of Ingredients:

Lavender oil:

This one is actually pulling double duty! The lavender soothes and heals, while smoothing out the energy around it, and the oil represents light and safety, as well as bringing the other ingredients together so that they can work as a team.

If it would be more convenient for you to use dried lavender or lavender essential oil, simply add some cooking oil to the mix to make sure that it is unified!

Sunflower seed oil is my personal favorite, since sunflowers are also protective and cheerful, but it’s okay to use whatever oil you have available! 

Just be sure that it doesn’t smell bad to you, or it might be hard to sleep near it!

I don’t yet know of many flowers that I would use in place of lavender (maybe jasmine?), but if you have one (or more!) that you prefer, go ahead! As long as it is soothing and promotes healing.


Ground cloves:

The cloves are to give this potion some oomph! They are a protective spice, good for banishing negative spirits and energy, but they have some gentler qualities too.

Cloves also promote love and healing, which will boost the lavender.

You can use things like nutmeg, ginger, allspice, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice (which is a blend of several of these, plus or minus some things!) in place of cloves. The important thing is that it be a spice with some kick, but isn’t as harsh as, say, black pepper.


Primrose flowers:

These are just the finishing touch. They are a generally positive plant, promoting love and the revealing of secrets, which is useful here for letting you know in your sleep that you are okay, and that you are just dreaming. 

I’ve read that these flowers are sometimes associated with the Fair Folk, so if you thing that your nightmares might be stemming from an issue with them, perhaps substitute a different flower in for them, and leave the primrose out in a different room as a small offering.

The important thing in deciding what flower to use as a substitution is finding one that is energetic without being enough to interfere with your sleep, and gives off a sense of kindness or peace. 

Try to find a flower that you could see quietly reading a book while you rest nearby, keeping an eye on you to make sure you’re okay.

My sister recently told me that plants (vegetables) have cholesterol and you can still have heart failure by eating plants. I didn't know what to say so after I tried to research it. Then, I came across a website that states that plant cholesterol is toxic for humans. I don't really know what to say to her because she is always approaching me wth non vegan arguments. What do you guys know about this "plant cholesterol" and is it bad?

They are called Phytosterols & TONS of mind numbing studies have been done on them & they don’t get absorbed in the digestive system.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3090246/

this study shows that adding PEs to a meal does not alter fat hydrolysis in the duodenum nor chylomicron release, but specifically reduces free cholesterol availability for intestinal absorption

Just remember, these same well meaning & undereducated people will then tell you that vegan’s don’t get enough healthy cholesterol in the same breath they are telling you that plants have cholesterol…  Be careful, it is really messy when you point it out and their heads explode.

But you are NOT off the hook because you are VEGAN!!!

Heart Disease is the #1 killer in America.  The founder of the American Vegan Society H. Jay Dinsha died of a heart attack at 66.  (40 years as a VEGAN)

How can mainstream vegans promoting a garbage vegan diet where we all could die BEFORE Dave Thomas (69d) the founder of Wendy’s & the Bacon Double Cheeseburger…  not see the counter productiveness of this on saving animal lives???   

Watch Dr. Gregor go over this comparison of Dave Thomas to Jay Dinsha.

<–   this is one of the most important health video to watch for vegans

The Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio explains why vegans are doing so horribly.

Omega 3′s = green leafy veg & flax & walnuts

Omega 6′s = corn, safflower, cotton seed & sunflower oil (processed foods)

Making of a heart attack = Injury - Inflammation - Oxidation - Clot * burst to heart attack.  Omega 6, despite being essential, in excess increase the injury & inflammation & stopped the EPA & DHA production Omega 3′s reduce.

Natural Ratio 1:1  (before Omega 6 loaded modern cooking oils)

Meat Eaters 7:1   (eat fish that cheats the system, since fish eat the Omega 3′s for them)(flax is better & doesn’t have toxins included in fish)

Vegetarians 10:1

Vegans 15:1

Vegan Children 44:1…

So what to do?  Just fill vegans up with ground flax seeds?  Not so fast…

STOP EATING OIL & FEEDING IT TO KIDS!!!!

  • Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, published his results of patients who had had an average of three previous cardiac events before he put them on a vegan diet with no added fat – including oil – and not one patient ever had another cardiac event in twelve years!  (Esselstyn CB Jr.  Updating a 12-year experience with arrest and reversal therapy for coronary heart disease (an overdue requiem for palliative cardiology).  Am J Cardiology.  1999 Aug, 84(3):Pages 339-341)
  • Students were assigned to a group who ate a fat free breakfast of 900 calories versus a fatty breakfast of 900 calories.  The arteries of the group that had no fat in their breakfast bounced right back after being constricted for five minutes; but the arteries of the group that had the fatty breakfast took up to six hours to regain their ability to dilate and contract normally.  All oil is 100% fat.  Even olive oil.  (Vogel RA.  Brachial artery ultrasound: a noninvasive tool in the assessment of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins.  Clin Cardiol.  1999 Jun;22(6 Suppl):II34-9.)
  • Researchers at the University of Maryland found that eating bread dipped in olive oil reduced the arteries’ ability to dilate by 31%.  (Vogel RA, Corretti MC, Plotnick GD.  The postprandial effect of components of the Meditterranean diet on endothelial function.  J of Amer Col Card.  2000 Nov;36(5))
  • Many vegans’ ratio is shockingly high – even as high as 120:1
  • The Lyon Heart Study turned olive oil into a health food when they found that the Mediterranean Diet, high in olive oil, helped people who had had at least one previous heart attack reduce their chance of further cardiac events by 50-70%.  HOWEVER, what you never heard was that a full 25% - one out of every four people on the Mediterranean diet – still had another heart event or died.  (de Lorgeril, et al.  Mediterranean Diet, Traditional Risk Factors, and the Rate of Cardiovascular Complications After Myocardial Infarction; Final Report of the Lyon diet Heart Study.  Circulation, 1999 Feb 16;99(6):779-85.)

So no its not MORE of one oil, its LESS OF ALL OILS.  Fatty vegans what is your long term goal?  To die at 66 of heart disease & develop degenerative brain disease?  seem more normal (aka dying prematurely like everyone else?) with fried vegan junk food?  If you want to save animals, start with saving yourself!

For people in fat fear;

Our requirements for essential fats are very small—no more than 0.5 gram daily.  Only plants can synthesize essential fats—so eating plant-foods is the obvious source of these necessary nutrients.  Because body fats (adipose tissue) store these essential fats efficiently, even if overweight people were placed on an artificially manufactured fat-free diet, they would have little risk of becoming deficient in essential fats over their entire lifetime.  Note: a diet made of unprocessed plant foods, like the McDougall diet, naturally contains about 7% of its calories as fat—and about half the total fat found in plant foods is of the essential variety—the kind we need ~Dr. McDougall Aug, 2006

Consider the possibility that an excess of these nutrients caused by adding avocados and other oils to a low-fat meal may result in nutritional imbalances that encourage disease. It is possible.

Save the vegan junk food for celebrations!  or better, yet — we don’t restrict, we replace!  make healthy versions not lacking in flavor or texture!
