Mythbusting Monday – Fats

Eat fat, gain fat, right? For a long time, the traditional way to lose weight has been to subject oneself to a low-fat diet. Today, we know that isn’t the case.

No, fat is not qualified as ‘healthy’, but shunning all fat from your diet can be dangerous, since your body needs to consume at least some omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.  A little fat won’t kill you, promise!

The truth is if you stay in a caloric surplus, a low-fat diet won’t make you lose weight. You need some omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids; saturated fat won’t give you a heart attack, but too much trans fat may.

It’s about choosing the GOOD fats – not all fat is created equal!
