2. Eat Healthy Fats

Now that we have eliminated unhealthy fats, let’s focus on the good fats we should be eating. The healthiest fat you are probably most familiar with are the omega-3 fatty acids that are commonly found in many cold water fish. Cod liver oil is perhaps the best of these, due to their high levels of vitamin D3. Other oils that are rich in vitamins are olive oil, almond, flaxseed, avocado, and palm oil.

However, coconut oil is perhaps the super star when it comes to healthy fats. Yes, it does contain saturated fats, but the saturated fats in coconut oil are made up mainly of lauric acid. This is what is called a medium chain triglyceride that actually helps to lubricate the arteries. If you still can’t go with the “butter is not bad” routine, eat coconut oil instead.
