Overcome Fat Phobia! pg1

- Cosmo Editor

For decades fat has gotten a bad rap, and been associated with all kinds of health problems including high cholesterol and heart disease. But, in the last few years, the link between ingested fats and ill health is proving to be more tenuous than previously understood, as studies indicate that sugar, carbohydrates and an over-indulgence in high GI foods could be doing a lot more harm than the odd length of wors. Here’s why incorporating some fat into your diet is a good idea, both for your health and for your waistline.

Before you reach for that fat-free salad dressing (which is probably full of sugar), drizzling your salad or veggies with olive, avocado or canola oil means that your body will absorb more of the nutrients in your food, such as beta-carotene.

If you’re watching your weight, hold back on the bread-basket – those white rolls might taste good, but they’re packed with empty calories. Have one wholewheat bun dipped in olive oil – then stop!
