7 Reasons Why FAT Is Good For You

September 26, 2014 2 min read

tumblr_me2x8dPttA1rm2lheo1_500 There are two common misconceptions when it comes to fat:
  1. Fat makes you, well, fat.
  2. Fat is bad for you.
What if I were to tell you that those two statements are merely the truth? Yes, fat IS good for you. Like carbs are good for you and like protein is good for you. Your body NEEDS fat-just watch out for the type of fats that you do consume. No, fat WON'T make you fat. Just like carbs won't make you fat and protein won't make you fat. Eating an excess of calories per day and leaving them unburned by physical exercise will make you fat. Moderation, people. It all just depends on what fats you eat and what fats you steer clear from. Nowadays, scientists are even claiming that some certain saturated fats are good for you. But, what truly holds the key to your nutrition is moderation. Don't cut out fats completeley from your diet-there are way too many benefits! 164503_1534214197104_7820914_n 7 Reasons Why FAT Is Good For You
