Healthy High Fat Foods To Eat More Of #1: Coconuts

Who says that fat is bad? Studies have proven that eating more fat--the healthy unsaturated kind--can lead to increased weight loss. Fat may have gotten a bad rap, but in this series we're going to take a look at a few of the best high-fat foods to add to your diet. First up, coconuts! I love coconuts--the milk, the meat, coconut oil, everything. With its rich taste, coconut is perfect for desserts, savory dishes, breakfast foods, and so much more. Coconuts are actually surprisingly high in saturated fat, which is why coconut oil solidifies when cooled. When consumed in moderation, saturated fat is not unhealthy, unlike trans fats.

  • 354 calories
  • 30 grams of saturated fat
  • 1.8 grams of unsaturated fats
Coconut oil is one of the healthiest on the planet, offering benefits like:
  • Boosting immune function
  • Promoting weight loss
  • Controlling cholesterol
  • Boosting skin and hair health
  • Regulating your digestion
  • Speeding up metabolism
  • and so much more…
As far as healthy fats go, it doesn't get much better than coconuts!
