The Skinny On Fat

By Laurel-Lea Shannon

Fat has been vilified by the medical community for decades. But did you know your body needs fat to function properly? Healthy fats may be your biggest ally in the battle against weight gain.

Eating healthy fats will make you feel full faster and for longer because fat is digested more slowly than carbs. But just like carbs all fats are not equal. Stay away from hydrogenated oils and transfats.

Good sources of healthy fats are monounsaturated fats found in: olive oil, almonds, fish oil, salmon, almond butter, and flax seeds. These sources are also high in omega-3’s which lowers cholesterol and triglycerides, helps to prevent blood clots, improves brain function and stimulates blood circulation.
