I’m a big propagator of good sources of healthy fats. But one thing which a lot of us don’t realize is that fat is more dense, which is why in a smaller quantity you tend to get more calories. But it’s not even about that. Not all fat sources can give you adequate micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).
I’ll give you an example. We may believe that olive oil is an excellent way to get our essential fatty acids in. The truth? Olive oil is composed mostly of monounsaturated fats, which are not essential at all. To get your daily Omega-3 from olive oil, you’d have to drink one cup of olive oil a day.That’s 1,900 calories and 30 grams of fat! (Hint: A much better alternative to get your daily dose of Omega-3s is to simply add 1-2 tablespoons of flaxseeds–not flaxseed oil or chia seeds–to your diet every day.) And hear me out on my post today how much is the percentage of fat you actually need to stay healthy.
