Don'T Skip The Healthy Fats

This Sparked Me!

Fat is a crucial and vital part of the diet! Many people think that they need to "reduce extremely" their fat level intakes... But what you should focus on is meeting the DRI (your goals) and having a majority of those fat grams be an intake of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Those fats are referred to as the "healthy" fats. They can even help lower LDL count. Stay as far away as you can from saturated and trans fats. Those are the "SOLID" fats such as butter and margarine.
