What are healthy fats? See which types offer the most benefits.

Fat has gotten a lot of discussion in the diet discussion spaces. The low-fat movement that started in the 1980s told us that we should cut fat, while high-fat diets like ketogenic diets tell us otherwise.

How do you know where the answers are? The reality is that fat is ingrained in American diets. It’s in the oil we use in the pan, the fish we cook, the vegetables we eat (think avocado). It is also an essential part of a healthy diet and is crucial for energy, cell function, hormone production and nutrient absorption.
