Fats have gotten a bad rap over the years. However, all fats are not creative equal. There are good fats and bad fats. Good fats come from fish, nuts, avocados, seeds, olive oil and other foods. While they are high in calories, these foods contain omega-3s and omega-6s which are actually health-enhancing properties. These fats are responsible for improving conditions ranging from heart health to depression. Avoid bad fats such as saturated fats found in animal products like meat, dairy and eggs, and trans fats found in processed foods such as fries, chips, cakes and cookies.
