Healthy Fats? They do exist!

Healthy Fats? They do exist!

Ashley Alera- Fitness Together Newtonville

We have been taught to fear "Fats" through this diet bubble we live in today!  I want to clear a few things up.

1. Not all Fats are created equal

2. Fat is a macronutrient just like Carbohydrates and Proteins and our body needs it

3. Fat does not make you fat-a discrepancy in calories consumed and expended is responsible for that

There are four faces to fats (poly-unsaturated, mono-unsaturated, saturated, trans).  Poly- and Mono- are very good friends to proper functioning of your brain, cells, organs, heart, nerves, and joints.  Okay, so lets give our body what it needs!

 

Healthy Fat Sources

1.  Avacado= creamy and delicious compliment to your salads

2.  Olive Oil= richness to your chicken and shrimp

3.   Almonds= nutty mid afternoon hunger satisfaction

 

Enjoy!
