Healthy Tip

Toni-Ann DiSantis

Stop believing all fat is bad and eat more of the “good” kind -Many of us still suffer from the ‘low-fat hangover’ of the 1980s and ’90s—the time when everything low-fat was promoted as healthy. We know the truth now: The food producers simply replaced fat with sugar, which was no more healthy. In many cases, the sugar turned out to be even worse for our health than the fat it replaced. Plus, we now know some fats are good for us. Enjoy nuts, avocados, and olive oil to boost your intake of healthy fats. They keep you satisfied and full longer, too. This can help you stick to your healthy eating plan.
