Old habits die hard and it’s the same for this common myth that cutting fat from your diet can help to beat the bulge. In fact, it is not always the dietary enemy but incredibly nutritious for our bodies (when eaten in moderation). 

Have you ever wondered why low-fat foods still taste so good? It’s because of all of the sugars and chemicals that are added to substitute the fat content. In other words, you might think that you're being healthy and saving on fat but essentially you are adding to your sugar intake instead, which is not good.

By looking past these 'low-fat' foods and opting for the healthier option might help to shift that extra weight and even give you some more energy. Not only do they make for delicious meals but some even go as far as being super-foods.


Here are some to consider adding to your diet:

  • Avocados
  • Nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios)
  • Olives
  • Salmon
  • Seeds (chia seeds, flaxseed and sunflower seeds)
  • Eggs


Tip: Remember all foods, especially those high in fat content, should be eaten in moderation.
