“If you eat it, you will gain it!�? How many times have you heard that before? We are saturated with marketing and ads about how eating fat will make you fat and unhealthy, it’s no wonder so many people don’t understand the difference between dietary fat and body fat.
Dietary fat is the fat that you eat in your diet. Yes, man-made fats like trans and hydrogenated oils are bad for you heart and arteries; however, the solution is not to eliminate fat from your diet. For thousands of years, people have been eating fat – fats in natural oils, nuts and seeds, avocados, fish, meat, dairy, and eggs. And there hasn’t been an obesity problem until about 20 years ago.
If you find yourself constantly choosing low fat, or non-fat foods, do yourself a favor and start reading about fats and their benefit and necessity for proper body function. Choosing the right fats in your diet definitely makes a difference… but more on that later!
