The forgotten omega-7 monounsaturated fatty acid

  • It is interesting that when carbohydrate is consumed in excess, a saturated fat called palmitic acid is formed. Yes the same type found in palm oil!
  • The statement above is simply Biochemistry 101
  • However, what a difference a double bond makes to this fatty acid.
  • Palmitoleate, an omega-7 monounsaturated fatty acid now becomes a lipokine (a lipid hormone) that becomes very important for those who have insulin resistance.

Dietitian Wanted


I am a medical practitioner who has a thorough interest in preventative healthcare and someone who sees dietary and exercise modalities of treatment as the absolute foundation for any and all medical and surgical interventions.

I work in the harbourside suburb of Mosman in Sydney and I would like to find a dedicated and hard working dietitian who would like to build a business in this North Shore area. The successful applicant will benefit from a number of strategic associations I have made in this area to help them build what should be a financially sound client base.

I am looking for an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) to work with, who has a solid interest in clinical nutrition and someone who is well read in current cutting-edge aspects of nutritional research. I would like to work with the dietitian to develop this NutriDesk website into a practitioner hub and there are financial benefits in doing so.

The dietitian will greatly benefit from my personal referrals to them and they will also enjoy seeing patients who have diverse clinical problems.

If this is of interest to you, please contact me via email at: and provide me with your contact details so that I can discuss what this exciting opportunity may hold for you.

Best wishes

Dr Rodney Lopez MBBS (Sydney University), GradCertNutriMed (RMIT)
