Healthy fats will keep you full, processed fats may impact your health
Fats are an essential part of the diet and are involved in several processes in the body that keep you healthy such as moving vitamins around the body and hormone function. However, when a large proportion of the fats consumed are from processed or saturated fat sources, which are the types commonly used in processed snack foods, it can have a negative impact long term on certain health markers such as blood cholesterol levels. Choosing healthy fats which come from foods such as oily fish, nuts, seeds, and avocado will help boost the healthy fats circulating in your body. Nuts and seeds make a great snack that are also rich in fibre to keep you feeling full for longer!
