Fatty foods and almost everything related to fat is going to be looked at as bad, but that’s something that we’re getting wrong. Fats aren’t going to make you obese if you’re eating the right ones, as well as making sure that you’re taking in a good amount. When you overeat, of course, there are going to be issues that arise – but that has nothing to do with the fats themselves. Eating fat can help promote a health digestive system, as well as just ensure that you’re getting all of the nutritional value needed from your meals. Lean meat is nice and all, and there are people who swear by it; but a thick and juicy steak with a nice strip of fat never hurt anybody.
People avoid fats because they are lead to believe that they are a problem in their diet, when that really isn’t the case. I am a professional health and well being expert, and I take pride in eating as much fat as I can – which, ironically, isn’t much. We all have different bodies and they will react differently to fat, that’s one of the best parts about being a human. Test out the amount of fat that you can take by gradually increasing your intake until you feel bloated, or otherwise “different”.
Sugar highs and crashes are a real thing, but there is no such thing as a fat high or fat crash. Fats are bad in abundance, because when you eat too many they will build up and cause you to gain weight. Not only will you be gaining weight, but it won’t be the good kind. Many people have a tough time packing on muscle and think that eating a bunch of food can help, and while that is true, you need to make sure you’re working out just as much. Fats can be good for:
- Nutritional Value
These are 4 things that fats can help you with, especially the taste category. Who wants to be eating bland food on a day to day basis? I know that I don’t!
The Right Foods
There are foods that contain fat you would never even think did, and there are others that would be the complete opposite. Get into the habit of checking the ingredients in the food you are eating, as well as looking at the “macros”. This is the calorie per serving count that the food has, as well as the percentage of fats and any other nutritional value that may be within. People don’t check labels and it comes back to bite them in the butt, especially when they are in the middle of a diet. Don’t be that person! Keep your eyes peeled and always be sure to check the ingredients/macros of the food that you’ll be purchasing.
