Yes! You'd better believe it. Some fats are needed in a healthy diet. They key is to choose the right ones. Omega-3 fatty acids are the good guys. By including omega-3 fatty acids in your diet, you can lower your cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.
The best way to get these healthy fatty acids are to eat fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, sword fish and albacore tuna, and also to cook with flaxseed oil and flaxseed flour.
