Let's talk Fats
Healthy Fats are essentials in our daily diet for a variety of reasons. Fat gives us sustainable energy, are high satiety (help us feel full for longer), supports our brain function as well as gives our skin a glowing complexion.
As most of us know, the Ketogenic diet has become the "new" rage when it comes to weight/fat loss and for a good reason. Keto has been deemed the "Never Hungry Diet" due to its high “healthy" fat content and low carbohydrate intake. However, Keto is not for everyone and just including a good serving of healthy fats in your daily nutrition intake can give you many nutritional benefits while shrinking your mid-section.
Ideally you should be consuming 2-3 servings per day of healthy fats.
A few essentials are:
AKA: Fruits and Veggies
Anything that falls into this category should make up most of your plate. Imagine a pie plate - 2/3 should be filled with vegetables. Fibrous Carbs are filled with fibre, which helps you feel full longer, aids in digestion, are filled with vitamins and minerals and help trim away unwanted weight and fat.
The beautiful thing about consuming an abundance of Fibrous Carbs is that you get such an assortment of goodness. You often feel full faster, and you don't have the bloating or unwanted weight gain when you focus on eating most vegetables at each meal. Ideally you should be consuming at least 2 servings of fresh fruit or vegetables at every meal. Some for staying on track when it comes to including veggies in your diet.
Remember, 2/3 of your plate should be Vegetables!
