All we need to avoid are the sugars and carbohydrates! Healthy fats would be things like:
- Grass fed butter
- Grass fed beef, lamb, and goat
- Wild caught fatty fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel
- Nutritional supplements such as krill and other marine oil
- Organic nut butters
- Walnuts and macadamia nuts

Here’s an excerpt from “High-Fat Diet May Relieve Nerve, Inflammatory Pain” by Amee LaTour
Foods That Fight Inflammation Pain
“Typically, an anti-inflammatory diet involves following general healthy eating advice – lean protein, whole grains, and plenty of fruits and vegetables – along with incorporating a few extra ingredients know to have anti-inflammatory properties, such as ginger and curry spice.
A different approach to fighting inflammatory pain may be a high-fat diet.
High-fat diets are also called ketogenic diets. They call for low carbohydrate intake as well as high fat intake. Typically, the body burns glucose from carbohydrates for energy. A ketogenic diet cuts down on carbs, thereby switching the body’s fuel system from glucose to fats.”
The High Fat Healthy Diet Use
“The first therapeutic use of the high-fat diet was in epileptic patients. The diet reduced the occurrence of seizures by decreasing nervous system excitability. Due to this same capacity, a ketogenic diet can actually increase one’s pain threshold, thereby reducing the sensation of pain.
Another way in which a high-fat diet may influence pain is by decreasing
inflammation. Inflammation is believed to play a major role in several health conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathic pain, many cases of chronic back pain and some cancers.
The body’s metabolism of fats produces fewer free radicals than the breakdown of carbs, and free radicals are a source of inflammation.
For much more information on the complex connection between metabolism and pain, including a discussion of the biochemical differences in those who eat a ketogenic diet, see the review of several studies at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312079/.”

The High Fat Ketogenic Diet Menu
A ketogenic aimed diet isn’t one where you try to eat a lot of high fats. But the beauty of this diet is that you don’t have to avoid fats, except for the trans-fat (hydrogenated) oils in processed foods.
A high fat ketogenic type diet menu plan would include:
- Mayonnaise (made without sugar)
- Nut butters
- Salad dressings made from healthy nut oils (organic, no bleach)
- Real butter
- Cream in coffee and whole milk
- Sauces and gravies (not thickened with flour, but cooked down)
Using common sense with fat intake is important. But you don’t have to give up the ‘yum factor’ in a lot of recipes. The ones that taste miserable with skim milk or no bacon. 🙂
