You need to eat Fat!

Check out the video on CrossFit Zone athletes warming up with tires…

One of the topics on almost everyone’s agenda is healthier eating and/or losing weight. For the past 20 years, we have been bombarded with information in the media about how fat is bad. The latest on the bandwagon is the government’s ban on trans fats (Yes, this is a good thing!). This has helped to plant a seed in people’s mind that fat is a bad thing. This couldn’t be further from the truth!

Fats in foods such as avocados, nuts, seeds, flaxseed oil, olive oil and wild salmon keep our cells, tissues, glands and organs functioning normally. So you ask, “How much is enough?” According to Udo Erasmus, PhD, one of the world’s leading experts in fats and nutrition, fat should formulate up to 50% of your total calories!

Don’t be scared!  Eating the right kind and amount of fat is a decision you’ll make to improve your health, not hurt it.  Try this: Increase your consumption of healthy fats and vegetables; reduce your intake of unhealthy carbs; and make sure you are getting enough protein.  You’ll thank yourself later!
