Fats Necessary in Diet for Good Health & Optimum Nutrition - Good Fats vs Bad

Dieting can get confusing. Take cooking oil. Cutting the unhealthy oils from the diet can equal great weight loss results and healthy benefits - but cutting out the healthy oils can actually raise health risks.

We call this situation 'When Fats Domino'.

Here is a list of the fats you need:

Polyunsaturated Fat Sources

Found in fish and whole grain foods.

Monounsaturated Fat Food Sources

Found in avocados, nuts, and yes, in vegetable oil.

Cholesterol, Saturated & Trans Fats, the Unhealthy Lipids

These fats that have been linked to risk of stroke and heart attack are the Saturated Fats as found in meats, dairy foods, coconut oil, and  palm oil.

Dairy Food Group & Fat Content

Skim milk takes a bit of getting used to, but the reduced calories and added calcium benefits are enough to beckon many-a-dieter.

Our tip: If you are currently drinking whole milk, step down a notch to 2%.

Enjoy that for a couple of weeks before switching to 1%. After allowing time to adjust, step into Skim Milk Village.

If you miss that full-bodied taste, try adding frozen fruits to skim milk then whirling them in your blender. Odds are, you'll never miss the whole.

Is Glutting Worth the Tradeoff?

The irony is.....our weight is based on time. How we spend our time. And specifically what we eat during our day. Glutting is a painful word to swallow; I really don't like how it sounds - but it is often the word which describes overeating [a much kinder word].

Fact is, eating a fantastic amount of food really takes very little time....and the tradeoff is a lot of our time spent on health worries due to our overweight status....
