Fats: A CRUCIAL PART OF OUR DIET

Fats: Most people think fats make you fat, but the truth is that it is really excess in insulin production, which is the process of over consumption of sugars- the main reason fat is added to your frame!

“Fat- Free” foods are usually higher in sugar than their full- fat counterparts, which leads to more insulin production and eventually… MORE FAT!

Try to eat Healthy, Heart- smart fats ( fish, olive oil, nuts, walnuts, avocados, and seeds) AVOID :saturated fats, hydrogenated fats, or trans fats found in chips- cakes- and fried foods!

 

Fat is CRUCIAL in our diets, SO DON’T SKIP OUT ON THE GOOD FATS!!! Fat is needed because:

  1. It makes food taste good!
  2. It helps release a hormone to the brain called CCK, cholecystokinin, which tells the body-“I’m full. I’m satisfied. I can stop eating.”
  3. It helps slow the entry rate of sugar (from carbs) into the bloodstream, which gives you more long term energy to last throughout your day!
