All fats are created equal - Diet myths disproved - Women's Health & Fitness

4. All fats are created equal
For years of my life I steered clear of eating fats, even healthy fats! I believed that all fats were equal and that is certainly not the case. I stayed away from essential healthy fats from nuts, avocados, seeds, and oils. Our body needs healthy fats to function, lose fat, and to improve our mood. I proudly will admit that eating peanut butter makes me a happier person.
