Eat FAT for Better Health

I want to share some important information about fat and why you SHOULD be eating it – that’s right, I said you SHOULD be eating it! Fats have been vilified for decades but the low-fat/no-fat movement has played a major role in the increases we are seeing in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic diseases – AND we are seeing these health impacts showing up earlier and earlier. For example: type 2 diabetes previously known as adult onset diabetes, which is now being seen in children!

Healthy fats are ESSENTIAL for optimal health AND for weight loss! Health fats fight inflammation which is the precursor to every chronic disease! Also fats are more satisfying meaning they fill us up and keep us satisfied longer which means less snacking between meals.

Sources of healthy fats include avocados, nuts and seeds, and oils such as olive, coconut, walnut, or avocado oil. Other great sources of healthy fats include oily fish such as sardines, salmon, herring, trout, and mackerel, omega-3 rich eggs from free range naturally and humanely raised chickens, and naturally raised antibiotic and hormone free grass fed animal protein.

Check out this great video from Dr. Mark Hyman for more info then comment below with your thoughts!
