Again, our bodies naturally crave fatty foods because fat provides sustained energy and typically contains vital nutrients as well. But – and this is a big but – there is a stark difference between healthy monounsaturated fat and the saturated stuff that is packed into processed foods at an unconscionable level.
Some natural foods, such as red meat, are also high in saturated fat, and we often make it worse by frying it in oil and drowning it in butter and rich sauces. Fat is undeniably tasty, but you don’t need to eat junk food to get the good feeling.
Handle with care: Fried chicken, fast food burgers, French fries, pizza, ice cream
Eat instead: Avocados, nuts, dark chocolate, whole eggs
