Day 18 - Forget Resolutions, Create Permanent Solutions

January 18, 2016

Today's task: Eat fat!

 

Why: Fat does NOT make you fat...unless it's fatty burgers & greasy tator tots all the time. Coconut oil, avocado, nuts, seeds, and butter are all beneficial for our bodies to absorb vitamins A, E, D and K, house all of our organs, cushion and repair our joints, and to use as a backup fuel source. For most adults, especially active ones, anywhere from 60-100+ grams of healthy fat should be eaten a day. If you avoid butter, use all fat free products, and only eat extremely lean meat, you probably aren't getting enough fat. Women especially need healthy fats to help regulate all the hormones that soar through our bodies and for better hair and skin health.

 

To make this a permanent solution: Keep track of how much fat you eat and where it comes from. Any sources that are unhealthy, find a healthier replacement. Also, take inventory of any foods that you usually buy as "fat free" or "reduced fat" (yogurt, sour cream, cream cheese, peanut butter, etc.) and see if you can't go for the full fat version next time.
