Are You Consuming the Right Kinds of Healthy Fats?

Posted by Garcia Weight Loss on 12/22/2015
So, what are healthy fats? They are monounsaturated (MUFA) and polyunsaturated fats (PUFA). They can help raise good HDL cholesterol and lower bad LDL cholesterol. They help protect your heart against arterial plaque build-up and PUFAs like omega-3 fatty acids (like our Omega-3 Pro) actually boost brain function and strengthen immunity. You can find these “good” fats in these types of high-quality, nutrient dense foods: Olive oils, Almonds, Avocados, Nut butters, Flaxseeds, Walnuts, Salmon On the flip side, there are also fats that you should be wary of and consume in moderation. An easy rule of thumb is to limit the types of fats that are solid at room temperature (saturated fats), like butter, cheese and some vegetable oils. As for trans-fatty acids, stay away! These chemically processed vegetable oils are nutrient-void, and should be avoided. They can be found in processed foods (talking to you “partially hydrogenated oil”), fried food, and some margarine. By being smart about the fats you consume, you can actually help keep your heart healthy and embrace a slimmer you!
