MYTH: Avoid any Fat in your foods; Fat Free is the only way to eat!
TRUTH: Your body actually needs some healthy fat, you couldn't survive without it.
The building blocks of fat are used in your brain, around your nerves to protect them, and fat is also involved with your hormones.
The key to getting the right fat into your diet is simply knowing which fats are the healthy fats.
Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are considered "good fats" because they have been linked to lowering cholesterol levels, reducing blood pressure, protecting skin, vision, memory, and much more.
