Everyone who has ever gone through a diet will know that there are some hard and fast diet rules that everyone absolutely certainly knows about losing weight: One of the first things is that you need to exercise if you want to stay healthy and you need to combine this with a healthy diet if you want both of these things to be effective and contribute to the eventual effect of weight loss. One of the other things that most people know about losing weight is that they need to cut fat out of their diet – because fat is bad, and you’re looking to lose fat with this process, right? Wrong. You should know that there are good fats and then there are bad fats – and you should be consuming more of the good fats and a lot less of the bad. Here are ten healthy fats that everyone should add to their diet.
1. Coconut Oil
You will have heard about the craze surrounding coconut oil by now – a lot of health benefits have been credited to the advent of people using coconut oil more in their cooking and health routine, and people have even gone as far as to call it a superfood: One of the foods that contains everything you need for a healthy diet and then a little more. Have you added coconut oil to your health routine just yet?
It’s an easy change to simply switch out the oil that you are using now for coconut oil instead. Coconut oil comes in several varieties – including coconut oil that still has the taste of coconut, and some oils that have had it removed so that you can just use it for cooking where you don’t need the flavour of coconut as part of the dish. Remember that you should never fry with coconut oil – it becomes a carcinogen.
