Healthy Fats

Most Americans have been advised to adhere to a diet low in saturated fats to promote heart health. However, the paradigm for what constitutes a healthy diet is shifting. More often doctors and scientists advocate for a diet that abounds in “good fats.” Steven R. Gundry, M.D., author of “The Plant Paradox”, says that diets rich in good fats such as Omega-3 fatty acids and polyphenols produce better overall health for most patients.

Gundry has studied and concluded that cultures with diets rich in healthy fats tend to live longer lives and experience a better quality of life than those western diets that advocate for low-fat foods.
