Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid of Healthy Fat

Repeat after me: fat isn’t your enemy.

We (or maybe just me?) spend a lot of time avoiding fat and it’s time we embrace gods acknowledgment that food should taste good.

Also, who doesn’t love carbs? (Monsters don’t like carbs- that’s who.)

We need to get over our phobia of fat and embrace the olive oil in our life.

Also, real talk: fat tastes amazing.

Why eat healthy fat?

In addition to improving insulin function, fats take longer to digest then carbs which means you’ll be fuller longer.

The bonus that your blood sugar and insulin receive from these types of fat also can help lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Testosterone, estrogen, progesterone are all made of cholesterol which means eating healthy fats is good sexual health and hormonal functions (*ahem*).

Another reason to eat more fats is that they help you avoid post lunch tiredness. Carbs spike your blood sugar an aid in the inevitable “crash”.

So if you’re wondering why you are tired, sluggish, and your metabolism is wonky… look towards the sugar in your diet.

Wondering what to eat? I got you!
