    Good fats


    I know the typical good fats, PB, flax seed, almonds. What are some other good fats to include in my diet?

    Extra virgin olive oil is a good one to add. Put it on a salad, toss it in some soup, or just use it as kind of a dipping sauce for whatever else you may eat (really adds some great flavor to grilled chicken in my opinion)...tasty stuff and extremely high in good fats.

    You could also get a Fish Oil supplement (EPA/DHA) if you don't have one already.

    Although "good fats" such as olive oil and nuts are fantastic. Don't neglect saturated fats. They certainly have their place in a healthy diet, especially someone who is trying to add muscle.

    Well of course not! McDonald's is an extreme example, haha. I think that things such as liver, coconut oil, and butter are great for a healthy diet. They defiantly have their benefits. Check out some info on that link if you're curious.

    1 whole egg has ~1.5g of sat fat. That's a lot of eggs to eat to get a good amount of sat fat.

    Agreed! That's why I also eat chicken skin, beef, butter, liver, coconut oil, and any other fat I can get my hands on!
