    We have always been told to avoid eating fat, but this information is actually misleading. It can decrease the risk of diabetes and heart disease, and it also helps you lose weight. Over the last forty years, we have been informed that we must steer clear of eating fat in order to lose body fat. This came from the theory that our bodies processed all types of calories the same way.

     When you eat clean, all of your body’s systems function better. Essentially, you are giving your cells, muscles, and organs everything they need (vitamins, minerals, and a variety of other nutrients) and nothing they don’t (pesticides, chemicals, and a whole host of unnatural substances).

    While your body does need some fat to be able to function efficiently, some fats are better for you than others. For instance, the fat in nuts, olive oil, and avocados is good for your heart, and fatty fish supplies you with Omega-3 fatty acids which lower your risk of major medical conditions such as heart disease, cardiovascular disease, and high blood pressure (in limited amounts, of course). However, having saturated fat in your diet doesn’t offer any positive health effects. On the contrary, it actually raises your cholesterol levels, putting you at increased risk of stroke and...

  Cholesterol is a substance that can build up in your blood stream and cause you tremendous amounts of problems. Your liver makes some of it, but you also get it from foods too. Although some cholesterol is necessary in your diet, if you have too much of it then you’re doing more harm than good. If your cholesterol levels get too high, you can end up with heart disease. And, if your blood supply is cut off, you risk a heart attack. What can you do to lower the chances that either of these happens to you? Eat a...
