Are You Getting Enough EFAs?

Contrary to popular belief, all fats are not bad. Saturated fat is the bad stuff we want to stay away from. Saturated fat is found mostly in fried foods and junk food. EFAs or "essential fatty acids" are the good fats our bodies need. You can find these types of fats mostly in fish and nuts. When you are watching what you eat, you should never elimintate fat completely. Trade the foods with high amounts of saturated fats for healthy sources of omega 3 and omega 6 fats.

Check out this article for examples.
