For example, fats from processed foods, fried foods, and baked goods are harmful to your health. On the other hand, fats found in natural foods are actually healthy and nutritious. Here are some of the healthy high-fat foods you need to include in your diet. Avocados: Commonly used in making guacamole, avocados are rich in healthy fats and can fight inflammation, which is linked to cardiovascular disease. Studies show that eating avocados can regulate your cholesterol, blood pressure, and triglyceride levels.

Saturated fat good for you

It wasn’t that long ago that health experts warned people about the potential dangers of eggs because the cholesterol and saturated fat in the yolks were both thought to boost your risk for heart disease. But nutrition is a relatively new science and later research didn’t support these concerns. Let's say there's been a lot to unscramble. Here’s what you need to know about the healthfulness of eggs, what the labels mean and some easy and delicious ways to enjoy them. What the science shows A study that tracked more than 37,000 adult men and 80,000 adult women for a period of 14 years found that eating an egg a day was unlikely to have an impact on heart disease or stroke. These findings were released back in 1999. Since then, subsequent studies have reached similar conclusions. A 2016 meta-analysis — the type of study … [Read more...] about Ask a nutritionist: Are eggs good for you or not?

Wells Tags: coconut oil, food cures, food is medicine, Food Myths, good cholesterol, good fat, goodfood, goodhealth, goodscience, health myths, saturated fat (Natural News) In a recent cardiologist-led study of over 3,600 adults, another conventional health myth has been completely obliterated by real science. For years, MDs and pharma shills have been pushing their theory that saturated fats clog arteries and lead to heart disease, which translates to an early death. Now, science is proving that some of the good saturated fats found in coconut oil, butter, cream, avocados and organic nuts actually lower blood pressure. On top of that, millions of people have been ill-advised to eat no more than 6g of salt per day, but some people who eat even less than that have high blood pressure. Could that be because they’re eating iodized, dead salt? Maybe they should convert to organic sea salt. Let’s take a closer look at these … [Read more...] about Another medical myth BUSTED, as doctors admit saturated fat does NOT cause heart disease after all

But this isn’t exactly true. There are four kinds of fats, and you actually need some of them to maintain your overall wellness. All fats share a similar chemical structure, which is a chain of carbon atoms bonded to hydrogen atoms. However, the four kinds of fat differ from each other because of the length and shape of the carbon chain and the number of hydrogen atoms connected to the carbon atoms. Trans fats are bad for you Trans fats, the worst type of dietary fat, are produced due … [Read more...] about Not all fats are bad for you – learn which ones you should include in your diet

Saturated fats have born the brunt of the blame, but the truth about fat is slowly rising to the surface. Back in the 1960s, the Sugar Research Foundation (a trade group known today as the Sugar Association) paid Harvard scientists to skew their research on fat, sugar and heart disease. Ever since then, fat has been the “black sheep” of the macronutrients. Today, research that hasn’t been tainted by industry interests shows that a certain amount of dietary fats are essential, including saturated fat — and that sugar is worse for you than ever imagined. Nowadays, consumers also need to be concerned with not … [Read more...] about The truth about fats – which ones are really good for you
