Some people wrongly believe that they should eat as little fat as possible, but there are certain fats that you should eat and unhealthy fats you should avoid. While bad fats have been shown to increase the risk of developing certain diseases (in addition to contributing to weight gain), good fats are needed to protect your overall health and can even help control your weight.
Good Fats to Eat
Healthy fats protect the heart, lower cholesterol, increase mental clarity, and boost mood. Fat is also filling, which can help curb your appetite and prevent overeating. Unsaturated fats (mono- and poly-) should be incorporated into your daily meals.
Bad Fats to Avoid
Trans fat and saturated fats increase bad cholesterol and contribute to disease. These fats tend to be solid at room temperature (so you can imagine how they clog your arteries). It is best to completely eliminate trans fat from your diet and reduce your intake of saturated fats as much as possible.
Liposuction for Stubborn Fat
If you’ve followed a healthy diet and exercise routine but have still been unable to rid your body of stubborn fat, liposuction can help you reach your goals. Liposuction removes localized fat through a thin, hollow tube (cannula) with a suctioning device. As you finally eliminate those last stubborn inches, you’ll be able to wear a wider variety of clothing and have more confidence.
