A Word About Fats

Most of us have been told that too much fat is bad for you.

But eating low-fat means you’ll always be hungry. Fat makes you feel full and stabilises your mood and energy.

Fats are vital structural components in every cell in your body, they moisturise your skin, help nerve transmission and lubricate your joints.

Oily fish like salmon (preferably organic), mackerel, sardines, trout and fresh (not tinned) tuna contains plenty of essential fats.

Eat 4 servings a week, and if you don’t like fish, consider a fish oil supplement.

You need to eat 2 servings a day of essential fats, which can be nuts or seeds. A serving is 5 nuts or 1 tablespoon of seeds. These make an ideal snack with a piece of fruit, sprinkled on a salad or in yoghurt.

So eat, enjoy, but don’t overdo them! They are most certainly healthy, nutrient-dense and high in (good) fats, but too much of any fat in your diet will cause you to store more fat. Too little (good) fat will leave you hungry and inflamed.
