Trending: Good Fats

Trend Watch

If you haven’t noticed, good fats are getting good press these days. You’re probably thinking “Fat? Isn’t that the stuff I’m supposed to avoid?” We know. It’s confusing. That’s why we’re here to help you get your fats straight with some simple tips and advice from DoctorOz.com.

WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE THE F WORD

Not all fats are created equal. Saturated fats and trans fats are the types you should still avoid.

Unsaturated fats, like those found in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®, are the good fats that everyone’s talking about. They make your food taste delicious, and they provide essential fatty acids (like Omega-3 ALA), which are part of a healthy diet.

WHERE TO FIND GOOD FATS

  • Plant-based oils, like the kind you find in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®
  • Olive, canola, and sesame oils
  • Avocados
  • Nuts (like almonds, pistachios and walnuts)
  • Fish (like salmon and sardines)
  • Soybeans
