Not all fats are trans-fat! Good fats that come from nuts, avocados, fish oils, etc are actually essential for the human body. Here are four reasons why:
Many studies have now shown that supplementing your protein based and complex carbohydrate food with unsaturated fat significantly reduces the rates of cardiovascular disease and improves the health of the heart overall!
While trans-fats are known to clog your arteries, healthy omega fats are actually proven to prevent hardening of your arteries. This means blood flow is more natural and longevity is improved!
Good Ol’ Omega 3 Fat from sources like hemp hearts and chia seeds lowers inflammation within the body helping all types of functionality including mood stability and general circulation!
In general good fats are a great weight loss tool because your brain is mostly made up of fat. The end result is that your brain is satisfied longer with less food and the driving hunger is decreased when replacing carbohydrates with healthy fats. New science even suggests monounsaturated fats specifically prevents belly fat too!
