Like most people I keep a watchful eye on my weight, and whilst considering the calories in the food I eat is an important factor, I also try to look at the overall benefits the food I eat and the ingredients I use. Certainly I look carefully at the types of fat I eat, but whilst limiting saturated fats in the diet is a good idea cutting out healthy fats may actually undermine your diet. That’s because fat actually ‘fills you up’ like no other nutrient so if you cut all fats out of your diet, including healthy fats you are actually more likely to overeat and consume more calories.
