How Much Fat Should I Eat?

How much fat should I eat, if I want to lose weight and feel great?

When you look at the Nutrition Facts on the label for a food product, it's easy to get confused. There seems to be a lot of information there! If you don't know what you're looking for, that is! Once you become familiar with the things that are important to you, on the label, you will be able to make better food choices that will positively impact your well-being and your physical appearance!

One of the main things to look for is how much fat there is-not only how much actual fat, but also how much saturated fat. Non-saturated fats are better for your health. They not only digest more easily, but they also feel less "heavy" in your system. That means you will feel the difference when a food is low in saturated fat.

With that said, now you know that, as a rule, it's best to stick with foods low in saturated fat. It's also important not to overdo it with the overall fat. Some people think that they can eat unlimited amounts of good fats, like the healthy fatty acids (omega) found in olive oil, fresh fish, certain nuts, and green leafy vegetables. This line of thinking is close, but not perfectly on target. While it is actually good for you to consume these foods, your body is still only capable of processing a certain amount of fat at a time. Therefore, if you consume too much fat, even good fat, your body will start to store it.

On the other hand, we have the other extreme: those who avoid fat altogether. You should not avoid non-saturated fat altogether. Your body needs a certain amount of fat! You should eat foods like olive oil, fresh fish, certain nuts, and green leafy vegetables, yes! But do avoid ALL trans fat, and try to consume as little as possible of saturated fat. But it is recommended to eat at least a moderate amount of non-saturated fat each day. If your diet is too low in non-saturated fat (such as omegas 3, 6, and 9) try taking a supplement such as fish oil.

Remember: as with all things, moderation is the key!
