The Benefits of Fat – Health Video Pick of the Week

There is a lot of fear surrounding fat in our diet, but it’s so important that we include healthy fat in our meals. As Joyous Health points out, fat helps with chemical reactions in the body, helps with growth, development, reproduction, immune function, metabolism, and it also insulates and protects vital organs in the body. Fats are also important to improve insulin sensitivity, balancing your blood sugar, and to help you feel fuller longer; thus, fat is great and we need it every single day. This video highlights more amazing benefits of fat in your diet, and gives some yummy recommendations for how to include good fats in your meals.
