All About Monounsaturated fat



Monounsaturated fat

  • -          Considered to be a “good” fat.
  • -          This type of fat can lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good) cholesterol.
  • -          Can decrease risk of heart disease and other heart/artery related diseases.  This is especially true when it is used to replace saturated/trans fat.
  • -          Decreases risk of heart disease and other heart/artery related diseases significantly when combined with weight loss through calorie restriction and exercise.
  • -          Foods high in monounsaturated fat often contain high amounts of vitamin E, which is an antioxidant (these help prevent multiple diseases), prevents clotting, and benefits red blood cell formation.
  • -          Monounsaturated fat (along with other fats) allows the body to absorb and use fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K.
  • -          Excellent sources of monounsaturated fats include olive oil, avocado's and nuts.

    1. whey protein is not necesary to lose weight or build muscle. Whey protein is simply a tool that can be used to hit your protein requirements for the day if you have difficulty hitting it with "whole foods". If you do decide Whey protein would benefit you in this way then simply use it at any point during the day, you do not need to take it at specific times.
