OCTOBER 2016 – Does fat make you fat? No, and it actually makes you healthy. Fat is an essential part of our diet and has many healthy advantages. Fats can strengthen our bones and immune system, improve skin, eye, and reproductive health, and support hormone balance, just to name some of the benefits.
But as with any food, quality counts. The best sources of healthy fats are olive oil, wild salmon, sardines, fatty fish, seeds, avocados, and grass-fed animals.
So if you want to optimize your health, and I believe we all do, get those healthy fats into your diet.
See you next month. Until then…be well.
