Does Eating Fat Make You Fat?

Does eating make you fat?
The short answer is NO and it’s also YES.
The best thing you can do is eat healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, and coconut oil. The other thing is don’t eat too much of them. Keep to about 30grams of fats per day. So that’s like 3 tablespoons of butter, 3 tablespoons of almond butter, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, or 2 large avocados. Get good at reading labels to look for total fat grams. You’d be surprised how much fat there is in some processed foods and it can be the bad fats like partially hydrogenated oil or non-organic canola oil.When you eat too much fat and don’t burn it off with physical exercise, your body is going to store that fat for future use. Your body is programmed for survival and a good layer of fat will help you survive a famine.

Caution! Do not eat packaged, processed foods labeled LOW FAT! That is not the take away here. Those foods are packed with sugar to make up for the lack of fat and flavor. If you’re going to eat something like dairy, make it full fat and organic. Just don’t eat the whole tub of Greek yogurt in one sitting!

The key is to eat enough good fats per day and also move your body every day. Even 30 minutes of walking is great exercise. You don’t have to train for a marathon to burn stored fat, but you do have to eat less of it per day.
