Good Fats Vs Bad Fats

Is this a trick question? All fat is bad, right? WRONG!!! The fat free craze from years ago has really done our waistlines a disservice. We were told that fat is the enemy and thus loaded up up on everything from virtuous salads to fat free cakes. Well keep the salad, but put a little fat on it (the good kind of course). Here's why. Mono Unsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFAs) are essential to helping your body BURN fat. That's right. It takes fat to lose fat! MUFAs not only help keep you full and help your body absorb vitamins but they also keep your metabolism burning.

The following are just a few types of MUFAS: Olive Oil, Avocado, Flax Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Walnuts, Almonds, Salmon

You don't need to add a lot of MUFA's to see the difference, nor should you since they're still calories after all. Just a few slices of avocado on your salad or salmon to go with your steamed veggies and your inner furnace will start cranking.
