Why is it important to include good fats into your daily diet?

FAT IS AN ESSENTIAL NUTRIENT!

Fat is commonly misconceived as a cause of the rising obesity rates and health problems like diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol. Misconceptions and false advertising are making people think they need to avoid fat, but fats are essential to your diet for numerous reasons and are actually a natural part of most foods. The body needs it, which is why humans have consumed it since the beginning of time. Fat is satiating and helps you feel full so you are more likely to eat less. Fats provide your body with fuel and improves the absorption of vitamins A, D, E, and K. Without fat your body wouldn’t be able to absorb these essential vitamins.
