Fat in Our Diets

Sarah Ware, BSc (Hons), RD, CDE

Duration: 54 seconds

Fat is essential in our diet and it is one of the three macronutrients that make up the main components of our food.

Eating fat alone will not cause you to gain weight. You can think of fat in food as broken into saturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Saturates mainly come from animal products whereas the unsaturated fats are plant based.

Fat plays many roles in the body. When it comes to your meal it can actually help you to fill up faster and feel full longer.

For example, if you were to choose a salad for lunch it would be best to choose a salad with mixed greens, some olive oil, avocado and a handful of nuts, as opposed to choosing just a mixed green salad with a fat free dressing. The former will keep you satisfied longer.

For more information on how you can incluce healthy fats into your diet, contact your local dietitian or medical professional.
