Healthy Fat

Many people still think that eating fat will make them fat, and that is so far from the truth. Fat helps fill you up so you are less likely to overeat at a meal or too soon thereafter. As with most things though, more fat doesn’t necessarily make it better for you. Too much fat can add up to too many calories, and the wrong kind of fats can be harmful for your health.
