Raise your hand if you bought into the whole low-fat craze of the 90s and 2000s? Guilty! 仄潑儭 Did it matter that these low-fat options were filled with extra sugar, artificial ingredients, flavors, and man-made fats? Nope! Gimme my low-fat option cause thats all that matters! I dont want to be fat, so why would I eat it? Oh silly goose! Not all fats are created equal By starting a war on ALL fats we stopped fueling our bodies with some essential and yummy fats with nutritional value. 元儭 I dont want to fall into the good and bad fat trap because Im not a big fan of labeling food. My rule of thumb is the following: eat more real food, which naturally cuts out heavily processed and artificial food. The same goes for fats, especially the ones that have been shown to be beneficial for our health. Avocado? Gimme that! Olive oil? Yes pleaseeeee! Nuts? Love me my almond butter. Coconut oil? Yummm 元儭 But if I can just impart a little bit of extra food for thought, its the following: find what works for YOU! We are all genetically different and what may work for me might not make sense for your body. You might even be allergic to avocados (Im so sorry for your loss)! Find your you diet, tailored to your bio individuality! 儭 What are your thoughts on fats?

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Yes to avocados and coconut oil. Fats are essential for cell maintenance, hormone production, a healthy brain and so many other VITAL body functions. Well done for demystifying the role of dietary fats in our lives

    Looking back at myself throughout my ED..... no fat! NONE. I always thought low = better, and this was such an unhealthy mindset. My body and mind function better when Im eating healthy fats - avocado obviously being the golden child. But the fat in donuts? Thats ok too

  • Maria Pastore 18.07.2018 03:20

    Um yes! But by default because my parents did... And of course, good fats are good and essential.
