7 Guiltless High Fat Foods That Dieters Can Enjoy!

There are quite a few high fat foods that you can feel good about popping into your mouth! For far too long, dieters have been fooled into thinking that low fat was the BEST choice to make. Ha! That’s a TALL tale!

The truth is that ever since fat has been slashed from the diet, American’s have become sicker and fatter and recent studies are now swaying in the other direction. Even saturated fat is now being recognized as beneficial and essential to the diet. THAT IS for everyone you understand? Dieters included!

Those chemical-laden, high sugar, low fat products are not meant for man nor beast. I was dumbstruck when I saw that they promoted them on the Biggest Loser. I saw their show for the first time this year and couldn’t believe they urged their contestants to consume some of these types of products. I guarantee you those professional trainers don’t eat that crap behind closed doors!

For that very reason, see if you can’t fit some of these delicious and guiltLESS high fat foods into your diet, and get on a more productive path to weight loss!

7 Guiltless High Fat Foods That Dieters Can Enjoy!

Did you realize that avocado’s were considered to be a fruit and not a veggie? What distinguishes them from other fruits is that they don’t contain a lot of carbohydrates. Instead, they contain 77 percent fat by calories; packed in a beneficial monounsaturated fat called oleic acid.

Avocado’s also contain 40 percent more potassium than banana’s, have been shown to reduce HDL cholesterol, may help reduce belly fat, and are a great source of fiber in the diet.

grilled cheese image

Did you know that it takes a whole cup of milk to produce just one slice of cheese? Pretty awesome huh? This also means it’s a great source of calcium, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. It’s also high in protein (6.7 grams per slice) and beneficial fats. Turns out that you NEED fat to absorb the vitamin A and D in dairy products because these are fat-soluble vitamins.

Please also consider what BRANDS of dairy products you buy. Our dairy cows work hard for us but their living conditions are horrid, especially here in the US. Do your part and speak out to the companies that continue to subject our farm animals to barbaric and torturous conditions.

Did you know that studies have shown that people who ate dark chocolate 5 times per week (or more), were less than half as likely to die from heart disease, compared to those who don’t? Its also been shown to improve brain function and protect the skin during sun exposure.

Dark chocolate is among one of the highest scoring foods on the planet! It’s 11 percent fiber, is high fat (65 percent by calories), and has over 50 percent of the RDA for iron, magnesium, manganese, and copper.

For the most benefits, choose a high quality dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa.

mixed raw nuts image

Did you know that people who ate nuts regularly tend to be healthier than their counterparts and have a lower risk of heart disease, type II diabetes, and obesity?

All nuts are beneficial to the diet because they’re rich in plant-based proteins as well as vitamin E, fiber, healthy fats, magnesium.

grass fed vs. organic butter image

Did you know that studies show that people who consume high fat dairy products like butter (especially from grass fed cows) have a reduced risk of obesity and cardiovascular disease?

Butter, especially from grass fed cows, contain beneficial saturated fats, vitamins A, vitamin K2, butyrate, CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), and bio-active fatty acids. It may cost more to purchase butter from grass fed cows but the benefits outweigh the extra expense!

shredded coconut image

Did you know that coconuts are one of the richest sources of saturated fats in the entire world? However, populations that include more coconuts in the diet have a much lower risk of heart disease. Why?

Coconuts contain medium-chain fatty acids and are therefore metabolized in the liver very differently than other fats. Studies have shown that high fat foods that contain medium-chained fats can deter appetite and are capable of boosting metabolism by up to 120 calories per day.

black olives image

Did you know that consuming olives regularly may be beneficial to people with allergies or other inflammatory conditions? This is because olive extracts function as anti-histamines at a cellular level.

One cup of black olives has 15 grams of monounsaturated fat. However, it is prudent to stick to the suggested serving sizes because olives are also packed in sodium, not SALT! I hope by now you realize the difference!

It is clear that although high fat foods have been demonized by society, they do have clear advantages for anyone wanting to take off a few pounds or regain their health. Don't allow fear mongering to control your eating habits!
