Our meals are generally high in protein and healthy fats. Fat in food does not necessarily equal fat on our bodies (thankfully!) That's because there are different kinds of fats, both good and bad. We follow a paleo-inspired diet that utilizes healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (think eggs, coconut oil, avocado oil) for numerous health benefits. We avoid the scary, detrimental types of fat (think french fries, pizza).
There is a myth that dietary fat, specifically saturated fat, correlates to disease and obesity. Again, it's not that simple. This is outdated nutrition advice and is far from the truth. In fact, there are significant dangers associated with not eating enough fat, such as increased cholesterol and heart disease, depression, and poor vitamin absorption. Healthy fats provide energy while improve body composition, brain function, bone strength, healthy skin, and actually aid in fat loss.
