Are you Eating the Right Fat?
Fat is a vital component to a balanced diet and is a requirement in order for the body to function properly. But TOO much or the WRONG fats can be a problem.
No matter what eating lifestyle you follow, newer science is showing us that there are more benefits to eating higher quantities of healthy fats than we previously thought. Evidence suggests that fat is a better energy source than carbohydrates! Fat is also important to a wide variety of healthy functions in the body.
● Can promote weight-loss
● Encourage blood sugar stability
● Stimulate hormonal balance
● Improve memory and attention span
● Enhance quality of hair, skin, and nail growth
● Assist in blood clotting, in muscle movement, and in controlling inflammation
● Help absorb vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, and calcium,
chromium, iron, magnesium, and zinc among others.
Think of fats as being on a continuum. On one end of the continuum are good fats like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and on the other end are bad fats like industrial-made trans fats in processed foods. Saturated fats fall somewhere in the middle. Consuming a variety of fat sources is key to finding balance in your nutrition!
