How Much Fat Should You Eat?

Excessive Calories From Fats

First of all, FATS ARE NOT BAD FOR YOU, before anyone jumps on me for being fat-phobic. They are essential and nutritious in the right amounts. But many recipe creators have taken the healthy fats concept and run with it in a sort of “loophole” direction, labeling recipes as healthy that contain upwards of 800-1000+ calories per serving. Yes, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing!

Typical recipes like this might contain a high amount of cheese, oil, avocado, bacon, or butter/nut butter. Fats are healthy and essential, but also must be kept in ratio with the rest of your diet to some degree, especially if your goal is fat loss.

Remember, the key to eating healthy fats is that a little bit goes a long way.
