There are fats and then there are fats.
It seems logical to exclude fat from a fat-loss program. After all, why consume it when you’re trying to get rid if it?
But, from what I have read, we need to eat a minimum amount of fat each day to actually burn fat.
It’s also necessary for the uptake of fat-soluble vitamins, namely A, D, E and K.
So it’s really about cutting out the nasty ones.
This is what I aim to do.
I will continue to eat nuts and meat. And even salmon despite the polyunsaturated fat content because the omega-3 fatty acids are important and we can’t make them on our own.
In fact, I’m going to change from skim milk to full-cream.
But I’ll keep away from the trans fats in many processed foods like cakes, biscuits and fast foods. And avoid margarine as it’s especially high in the wrong sort of polyunsaturated fat.
Why? I’ll explain shortly.
In the meantime, I guess I’ll be reading the food labels carefully.
