Slim. Fit. Happy.

Did you know that healthy fats should make up about one third of your caloric intake? A balanced diet plan, such as the one we recommend, consists of 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 30% fat. (You may have heard of The Zone Diet? Same principle.) Not all fat is bad, and avoiding these good fats can be detrimental to your health, too.

The good fats to consume include olive oil, salmon, avocado, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, tofu and edamame. Eating these healthy fats will help you feel fuller longer, help reduce bad cholesterol levels, and even aid brain function.
