Not all fats are created equal. While most of us have a healthy fear of the word "fat," it turns out that we need only fear the bad fats. Yes, there is such a thing as good fat. And, even though this seems counterintuitive, when we cut good fats completely out of our diet, we can actually gain weight. Just because it's labeled sugar-free, fat-free or whole-wheat doesn't mean it's good for you. Kait Fortunato, a registered dietitian and founder of Rebel Dietitian, says what is most important is the type of fat, rather than the amount of fat we eat. The omega-3 fats in particular have great health benefits for our bodies and can help lower triglycerides and cholesterol.
Examples of good fats you should eat daily:
  • Avocados
  • Nuts (such as almonds, peanuts, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, pecans and cashews)
  • Nut butter (such as peanut butter)
  • Fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, trout and sardines)
  • Olive oil
  • Olives
  • Flax
  • Soy milk
  • Tofu
