Fat gets a bad rap. As health conscious as we are, we forget that fats are an important part of our diet and are necessary in healthy amounts and forms.
Fat gives us energy. After about 20 minutes of working out, our body stops using carbs as energy and starts burning fat.
Fat keeps your hair and skin healthy.
Fat helps you absorb vitamins A, D, E & K.
Fats from food provide essential fatty acids, which help brain development, control inflammation and blood clotting.
Now you’re probably thinking: what are the best sources of healthy fats? Avocados, eggs, olive oil, nuts, nut butters and fish are some of my favorites. Eat them in moderation and know you’re doing something good for your body!
