Eating Fat vs. Cooking Fat

Recommended Posts

That's a good question without a simple answer. The basic idea is that you need to include fat in every meal. If you are cooking something with fat content like pork or whole eggs, you would not need to add a fat source like avocado, olives, etc. If you are cooking chicken breasts or turkey, which is very lean, you would need to add something.

It is normal, natural, and appropriate for the fat content of meals to vary - light in some and heavy in others. Things average out over time. But from a health perspective, fat is important. Fat is an excellent and durable source of energy and some vitamins can't be absorbed without a little fat in the meal to help the process along.
