Don’t fear fat
If you want to lose weight, don’t ditch fat
If you want to lose fat one of the worst things you can do is stop eating it, especially nutrient-packed sources such as avocado. High-quality fats are essential to optimal health, not least the production of muscle-building and fat-burning testosterone. “Whatever nutrition plan you’re following, a good starting point to ensure your daily fat intake is divided equally between monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and saturated fat sources,” says Dr John Berardi of Precision Nutrition. The only type to avoid are trans fats, which are rarely found in natural foods but are common in takeaways, snacks and fast foods. They have been linked to serious health issues including heart disease, cancer and obesity. Read the advice on the right to make sure you’re getting the full healthy fat benefit.
