We all hear so many different things with regard to diet. There are so many different trends around, from having no meat in your diet to avoiding dairy, and, while having no fat in your diet seems to be one of the most obvious pieces of advice for our health, the fact is that we shouldn't fear the fat! Let's show you why you should eat more fat.

Fat Is the Body's Main Fuel

Babies drink breast milk, which contains a significant amount of saturated fat. This is because that stimulates our bodies’ energy sources.

Fat Helps You Absorb Nutrients

Certain vitamins are fat-soluble, so having fat with it is the best way for you to make the most of it.

Fats Keep Your Body Warm

If you feel cold all the time, this could be a sign that your body is telling you it needs more fats.

Fat Surrounds Your Vital Organs

Your lungs and even your heart have a layer of saturated fats- the very same fats found in butter and full-fat dairy milk. And the most important organ, our brain, is mainly fat too! If you want to improve your brain health, you need to eat more healthy fats.

The great thing is that now, even if you follow a vegan diet, or are gluten-free, one of the best ways to get more fat into your diet is to have a healthy glug of olive oil. Have a look at the infographic below, and see how to choose the best olive oil. Fat is something that we should not fear at all, and it could be the missing ingredient, especially if we are trying to follow a low-fat diet.
