As the summer weather approaches, our eating habits tend to change a bit—less heavy, comfort food and more light fruits, as well as additional seasonal vegetables. It’s as if our bodies naturally switch from hibernation storing to fat shedding. So, if you’re looking to change your diet, start by eating more healthy fats—here are four reasons why you should according to BioTrust’s Joel Marion.
- Healthy fats will improve your blood sugar levels while helping to slow the rate food that your stomach is emptying.
- Fat can give you healthier-looking skin, hair, leading to a more youthful appearance.
- Eating more can help decrease the amount of carbs your body normally digests; thereby, helping your body burn fat rather than carbs for energy. This can also help you lose belly fat and weight.
- Fat found in organic foods can help you burn calories faster than a low-calorie diet.
Many people think the best way to lose weight is to eat less; however, most doctors and dieticians will tell you that eating more smaller and healthier meals a day is the most effective way to get rid of fat. While exercise is important to your physical health and fitness, a healthy, well-balanced diet is essential to ensuring that your body can fight chronic disease, illness, and function efficiently—overall, it prolongs not just your life, but the quality of your lifestyle.
