Παρουσίαση1-300x225For decades now the media, government and other individuals with a basic knowledge and understanding of fat have supported the idea that having a Low-Fat diet is vital to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and improving body composition.

Fat is not our enemy when it comes to getting ready for the summer, a wedding, social events etc. Fat is our FRIEND.

Obviously healthy fats such as free range meats, butter, eggs etc.

Here are a number of reasons why fat is our friend:

1. Fat provides long lasting energy, even more so than carbohydrates, thus making it a great way to start the day and keep you going until lunch time.

2. Eating fat makes you feel fuller and therefore controls your appetite.

3. Fat is vital to help the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins which are the cornerstone of health (Vit A, D, E & K).

4. Fat has a low insulin response, the hormone of aging, as compared to the way sugar does.

Next time you are looking for a product that is “Low Fat” make sure you are fully aware that the healthier fats in your diet help you much more than hurt you!
