When you include 1 to 2 Tbs. of healthy fat (from avocados, olive oil, almond butter, coconut oil, etc.) at every meal, you get roughly 40 to 50 percent of your daily calories from fat—and that’s the sweet spot that will help you lose weight without feeling deprived.
*Case in point: *Harvard University researchers found that dieters who focused on increasing their fat intake lost 180 percent more weight than those on a low-fat plan—despite eating more calories overall. Yummier salads and a slimmer waistline? Sounds good to us!
To get the perks: Try spreading coconut oil on toast, tossing salads with olive oil, mixing half an avocado into tuna or chicken salad, mixing up a bowl of fresh gauc, eating an apple with a spoonful of almond butter or sunflower-seed butter and roasting veggies with a drizzle of olive oil or coconut oil. Delicious!
