The Importance of Healthy Fats

Are you scared of eating fats? You definitely should NOT be and here are some reasons why.



Many of us think only the bad about fat, try to avoid and get rid of it as much as possible. But there are different types of fats, and some of them are extremely important for our body.


Healthy fats refer to monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. These are anti-inflammatory, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and are full of healthy nutrients.

Especially omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential fats our body needs for cell growth, heart health, and brain function. Eating more healthy fats on a regular basis has benefits for our hair and skin too. It prevents dryness, heals the damaged cells of the skin, and gives it a natural healthy glow.

Fat also contains more calories per gram in comparison with carbohydrates and protein, therefore adding some into your diet should lead to eating less and feeling fuller!


 

Top high-fat foods to add to your diet:


  • Coconut

  • Avocado

  • Nuts

  • Seeds

  • Olives

  • Oils from all of the above

  • Nut & seeds butter

  • Salmon

  • Fatty Fish

  • Eggs

  • Dark chocolate



Lots of Love
