Add More Fats For A Healthier Approach To Eating
Ok, which kind of diet is “IN” today? Higher fats? OK, what do we know about that except it is exactly the opposite of what we’ve been hearing for decades?
A study published in the respected medical journal The Lancet, tracked the eating habits of 135,000 people in 18 countries, ranging in age from 35 to 70 years old for seven years.
Those with the highest level of fat in their diets, about 35% of their caloric intake, were 23% less likely to die over the course of the study than those who consumed only 10% of their calories through fat.
This latest diet advice stresses higher fats and lower carbohydrates for a healthier lifestyle. The recommendations are not drastic but study authors do recommend adding healthy fats like avocado and salmon to your diet, while continuing to stay away from highly processed carbs. (NYDailyNews)
