Myth 1 of 5 – Fat Will Make You Fat
Fat has been criticized as one of the prime culprits of obesity. It makes sense, fat is what makes you fat. Not so fast. With so many grocery products labeled low fat, reduced fat, or non fat you’d believe that the answer to being healthy is eliminating fat. Let me tell you a secret, most of the low fat products are replaced with sugar to offset the bland taste. In reality low or reduced fat does not equal healthy, it just means that you’re getting your calories from a different source other than fat. The truth is that your body needs fat, the good kind at least. Avocados, olive oil, and nuts are healthy fats that will not only nourish your body but also make you feel full in order to avoid over eating.
