Resolve to Eat More Fat
Good fat, that is. It’s true that high-fat diets (more than 35 percent calories from fat or those containing high levels of saturated or trans-fatty acids) can lead to obesity, heart disease, and other serious health dangers. However, it’s also becoming increasingly apparent that a diet too low in fat can actually increase the likelihood of a heart attack by reducing the levels of “good cholesterol” in the bloodstream.
Research has shown that certain, specific kinds of fats are essential to human health and well-being. The monounsaturated fats found in olive and canola oils and the omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in fish oils are important for promoting cardiovascular, neurological, and psychological health. Salmon and tuna are good dietary sources of EFAs, as are high-quality, ultra-distilled fish oil supplements.
