Don’t eliminate all fat from your diet!

We all need some fat in our diets for good health, but not all fats are created equal. The typical American diet has more fat than is recommended.


Monounsaturated fats
Omega-3 Fatty Acids


Saturated fats
Trans Fatty Acids


Polyunsaturated fats
Omega-6 Fatty Acids

Eat nuts or avocados

Both are loaded with good monosaturated fats. Avocados are also high in Vitamin E. Do remember that these foods are in high calories because of their fat content, so keep portions small.

Avocados are heart-healthy: they contain good types of fats as well as vitamins.

Don’t overindulge in any fat

Diets higher in fat are usually higher in calories. Increased weight is a risk factor for heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes and cancer.

Higher calories means increased weight gain, which puts stress on your heart. Take care of your heart by avoiding fatty foods.

Don’t eat trans fats

Vegetable oils that have been hydrogenated (solid at room temperature) have large amounts of trans-fats. Trans fat can be linked with the development of heart disease. It is widely found in processed foods because it has a longer shelf life than other types of fats.

Trans fats can be linked with the development of heart disease, so avoid processed foods that contain them.
