If nuts and seeds and Phytic Acid are so bad, how come she is thriving?

Kristina really makes me feel like physic acid and omega 6 ratios and being afraid of nuts is crazy. She is GLOWING! LOOK AT HER! How come she can eat so many nuts, phytic acid, no animal fats and be so healthy? I just want to understand so I can be as healthful as possible? Please and Thank You!

If I eat too many avocados, nuts, or coconut oil I break out from not enough omega 3...I can't imagine her ratio?

100% carb diet? Yeah, sounds legit lol.

Actually SE Asians have a very high prevalence of diabetes:

"Currently in the Southeast Asia region, the number of people with IGT (impaired glucose tolerance) is approximately 93 million with a prevalence rate of 13.2%. This is the highest in the world..."

you would be surprised though! Avocados have a lot when you're not getting any

Are the SE-Asian islanders diabetic with their nearly 100% carbohydrate diet?

Coconut oil has 2% PUFA, extremely low. Avocados are 10% PUFA, that's low.

You should have more omega-6 than omega-3, 4-10:1 is normal. Unlikely your skin problems are related to omega-3 deficiencies or an imbalance in PUFAs.

2000 calories of carbs is equivalent to one pound of sugar. That's diabetes land. How long do you think anyone will last on such a diet and not destroy both their liver and pancreas?

I do love guac, but it does a number on my skin if it's a daily thing! I've never seen mackerel, or maybe it's just that I don't look for it! I'll look for it near the tuna? Okay, and so glad coconut oil is negligible, but I'm just adding it up...3 cans of tuna a week, coconut oil, coconut milk, not all grassed meat, and a good portion of guacamole from chipotle a day....certainly more omega 6 than 3.

I thought the same thing about avocados but stuck with eating them as i love guacamole too much and my skin soon calmed down, i do eat fatty fish pretty much everyday so maybe the omega 3 helps. Mackerel you should be able to get canned in any large supermarket. The omega 6 from coconut fat is negligible IMO, i wouldn't worry about it.

I feel like coconut oil/milk has been adding too much omega 6...but maybe that's because of the avocados everyday and not any omega 3s? I don't eat any veggie oil or anything like that. I can't always get grass-fed, but still, I can tell when my skin blows up it's usually from omega 3s or lack of fat soluble vitamins. And since I stopped eat avocado 2 days ago and increasing my fish oil supplement. My skin did a 180. But I don't want to eat chia seeds if they aren't worth eating. Where can I get mackerel? I've only heard of tuna?

If you want omega 3's then buy some mackerel, if you eat lots of coconut oil/milk then you'll probably notice you can even get your omega 3:6 to 1:1, lots of calcium in mackerel aswell, and generally very nutrient dense.

I really want to eat chia seeds, but I'm in the process of healing my teeth, and am sick of eating so much coconut milk and oil, and not enough omega 3s. Tuna isn't as appetizing after a while. I need more affordable calories and though soaked chia seeds were a great source of omega 3 and calories?

I also watch her channel on youtube mainly for raw desserts ideas. From what I understood she follows 80 10 10 raw vegan diet and it forbiddens from eating many fats. Fats can only contribute to 10% of your daily calories so she is not eating them in that quantities only making money posting recipes.

worry less about what works for other people -- and more about what works for you.
