Between so many sources promoting Keto and the age-old recommendation to stick with low fat or fat free, it's complicated determining if you should go low fat or full fat. As you struggle coming to a conclusion, you land somewhere in the middle, eating eggs with avocado and bacon for breakfast, followed later with a low fat strawberry yogurt for snack. And as a result, your health lands somewhere in the middle too.
There's really no question. Fat is an essential nutrient for your body with many beneficial roles to play.
Fat slows down digestion and provides a feeling of fullness.
Fat makes it possible for your body to absorb certain nutrients including vitamins A, D, E and K.
Certain fats provide anti-inflammatory benefits to your cardiovascular system.
Fat adds flavor!
Before you grab the butter though, take notice of which fats are healthier choices. Olives, avocado, nuts, seeds and some fish offer some of the best fats for us. They're all excellent sources of monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids which support our cardiovascular system and brain function.
