Don’t Abandon All Fats
Even though you hear a lot of bad things about fat, it is a necessary nutrient when consumed in the right amounts. Fat helps supply energy for aerobic exercise in the form of fatty acids and may help you lose weight. Fat also protects your organs by insulating them against the cold, helps to make cell walls permeable so that necessary nutrients can flow between the cells and the blood, and serves as a building block for hormones. It is important to keep fats in your diet but to eat the right types in limited quantities.
