Yes, that is correct, Fat and Diet in the same sentence and a bundle full of positivity to entwine the two together. Some hear the word fat and run for the hills, but this is simply not the case. In fact, fat, when eaten correctly, can be substantially beneficial to your body and increase metabolism as well as weight loss and hormone production.
So what fats exactly can you add to your diet today? Here are 5 good fats to add to your diet today:
It is always important to ensure that the wild salmon you buy is sourced from a local fish monger that you trust. Fish that is farmed tends not to keep the key nutrients in tact. Keep your Salmon tasty by eating it smoked or grilled with eggs or salad. Delicious!
- Olive Oil
Whenever you think of oil, you think of bad fat. Olive Oil however, is a healthy monounsaturated fat that your body is able to easily digest because your body knows exactly how to assimilate and eliminate it correctly. Olive Oil can be a replacement for oil spray and can be used as a salad dressing with Balsamic Vinegar. Say goodbye to tasteless salads!
- Eggs with Yolk
Often people who are on a fitness boost, think that egg whites are the best way to eat your eggs. This is not true! The Yolks provide 100% of the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and also have calcium, iron, zinc and B vitamins. Which are all very important to a healthy diet. Research has also shown that the whites can be a worse metabolic effect on insulin and blood sugar because they do not have the yolk to help slow down the absorption of protein!
Avocados are loaded with monounsaturated fat which helps to lower bad cholesterol, they also are a great compliment to salads, smoothies, eggs and meals, keeping you full and happy.
- Coconut Oil
This is not limited to the oil, you can use the milk, butter and whatever you like that contains fat and has the oil intact. Coconut oil is important because of the way that your body digests this type of fat and speeds your metabolism by 15%!
