Eating fat free isn’t good for you. Ironically it’s the reverse; eating fat is good for you and not eating it is not-so-good. So if you think eating fat will make you fat, it’s time to re-vamp your weight loss strategy. Because choosing the right kind of fats will actually help you drop pounds and inches. But stop. Don’t head to the drive thru just yet. It’s the good fats you want. And those don’t reside at the nearest fast food joint. The Cliff Notes explanation is that certain hormones released from your fat cells enhance your metabolism and increase the rate in which fats are broken down. Translation: healthy fats can curb your appetite. The cool part is that good-for-you-fats can be found in a ton of accessible sources. These are just a few favorites to get you started. And in case you were curious, they’re all paleo approved. (Those cavemen really knew their stuff.) Avocado Avocados are packed with protein and fiber. Plus they go with almost everything. Add some to your protein shake to make it extra creamy, garnish a chicken breast or burger with it, or even use it like you would butter on a slice of ezekiel toast.   Coconut Not only do coconuts boost your immune system, support the growth of healthy bones, and load you up with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, but in liquid form (read: coconut juice) they’re a great source for replacing your electrolytes after a workout. Plus your sweet tooth will thank you, because coconuts make an awesome guilt-free dessert. Almond Butter Almonds contain compounds that limit the amount of fat absorbed by the body, and can help kick late-night candy cravings to the curb. Plus it’s pretty yummy spread over a banana with a touch of cinnamon. Make sure to double check the label before it goes into your shopping cart though. You want the kind without added sugar. What are your favorite good-for-you fats? Comment below with your answer. (French fries don’t count!)
