Most of us while on a diet try to avoid fats all together, but the truth is healthy fats are your friend. Here are 3 simple reasons why you should incorporate these healthy fats in your everyday diet.

  1. Healthy fat burns body fat, going low or no fat is a huge mistake when you,re looking for weight loss or even overall health. When good, natural fat is replaced with chemicals and artificial sweeteners, it’s detrimental to your fat loss. Healthy fats boost your metabolism, turns on fat burning genes and turns off fat storage genes. Healthy fats support hormone balance for a better workout recovery. A healthy metabolism is going to aid in fat loss and healthy fats are amazing fuels!
  2. Healthy fats also increase brain function and increase energy. Fat is flavor but energy too. DHA found in Omega 3’s and other saturated fats have been shown to improve mood, keeping healthy serotonin in the brain high (which means you feel good)! Enough EPA and DHA has been shown to reduce signs of ADD, ADHD, depression, increase memory, cognitive function and more!
  3. Body composition and decreased diseases. Healthy fats like coconut oil and avocado increase metabolism and decrease insulin sensitivity which can keep inflammation in check. Inflammation, especially in our gut is the root cause of most disease. Fat is filling, so being satiated with healthy fats will decrease cravings for unhealthy foods and decrease potential binges!

Keep eating those healthy fats ladies, they do our body good!
