Fat-rich foods can help you lose weight

If you thought eating fatty foods cause heart disease, then think again. What you need to be aware of is the type of food you include in your diet and the type of fat it contains.

There are different types of Fats:

  • Good Fats - the kind your body needs and uses for the various body functions.
  • Bad Fats – processed foods and trans-fat that is added to packaged food

Saturated Fats are healthy fats.

Here is the list that will help you reduce your waistline and keep you healthy.
