Eating Fat Won't Make You Fat
"It's important to know that eating fat will not make you fat, however it does have a lot of calories so you want to limit fat in your diet to no more than 30 percent of total calories," Jamie Johnson, RDN, told POPSUGAR. Obviously this is for people who are trying to lose weight the traditional way, not with the popular high-fat, low-carb keto diet.
"Choosing the right fat is crucial," she explained. "Stick to healthy fats found in fish, nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocados, etc., rather than saturated and trans fats found in butter, margarine, fatty meats, and fried foods that can lead to heart disease if consumed in excess."
