No more guilty pleasure.
Fat, many people think that it’s bad, well it’s fat. It makes you fat. That’s not entirely accurate though. Unsaturated fat is good for us, it’s healthy, hence it’s the good fat. On the other hand, unsaturated and trans fat, these are the type of fat that you should stay away from.
The fact is we need fat (unsaturated fat and some type of saturated fat, but we should definitely avoid polyunsaturated fat) because of the important role that it plays in keeping our body functional. It helps to insulate the body, protects us from injury and helps with vitamin absorption. Fat adds flavour and texture to foods. To achieve a balanced and healthy diet, we should always include good fat in every meal. Without fat, our body will break down, so do not avoid good fats, do the opposite, embrace them.
