WHY TO ADD HEALTHY FATS TO YOUR DIET
Dietary fats are essential to give your body energy and to support cell function. They also help protect your organs and help keep your body warm. Fats help your body absorb some nutrients and produce important hormones, too
The best types of fat to look for in your diet are omega-3s, specifically DHA and EPA omegas, followed by monounsaturated fats and other unsaturated fats that come from plant-based sources.
Our bodies cannot synthesize omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids so we have to obtain them through our dietary intake, and aim for a balance between omega-3 and omega-6.
“Fats are the last to leave the digestive tract and thus provide satiety.” That means that fats can help us feel fuller longer and keep us from overeating or excessive snacking, especially on fake carbs.
