TIP #1: Know the difference between good and bad fats
The first step is to understand that fat is necessary for our health and that it plays an important role in our metabolism.
Find out more about the role of fat in our dedicated article.
The second step is to be aware that there are two main families of fat:
and "bad" fats.
The "good" fats are where we get our energy from. This is what we should be aiming to eat each day. They're found in natural and raw foods such as avocado, fish, organic cold-pressed vegetable oils, nuts and seeds (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cashew nuts, etc.).
"Bad" fat should be limited as much as possible. But how can you avoid it? That's easy: rid your diet of any processed foods containing hydrogenated oils, i.e. ones that have been processed by humans, and of saturated fats, which cause cancers and cardiovascular diseases.
