Attention y’all: DON’T FEAR FAT ✋
I get asked about my fat intake a lot, so I thought I’d touch on it in a post. You all know I LOVE my nut butter, avocados, + salmon. And I’m ALL about eating a balanced portion of healthy fats in your meals. But personally, my body doesn’t like a “high fat” diet, even if they’re from amazing sources like these. That’s why you see me eating 1/4 of an avocado at a time, 1 Tbsp of nut butter, etc.
It’s not bc I’m scared of fats - they’re SO beneficial and act as fuel for your body! Instead, this could be bc I ate a “low fat/fat free” diet for so long. 😒 So when I began changing my nutritional lifestyle, I SLOWLY started adding in healthy fats, which is what I recommend you guys do. You don’t need to eat a whole avocado, bulletproof coffee, or 3 whole eggs right out of the gate. Slowly introduce a moderate amount with each meal - a few whole nuts or light drizzle of quality oil on your salad, 1 whole egg + one egg white, etc. Once your body starts to adjust, you will get a feel for what it likes.
How do I know my body doesn’t like a higher amount of fat? 🤷♀️ Personally, I notice it in my digestive system. It starts to get more sluggish and I become waaaay more bloated + gassy 💨🙊, especially after meals.
I’m not going to say exactly how many grams of fat I eat in a day, bc my body is different than yours. But I WILL say that it makes up about 25-30% of my intake, depending on what my training looks like at the time and what my body is craving (I crave more fats around my cycle, as a lot of women do). But again, this is MY body. I urge you to find what works for YOUR body. Add things in a little bit at a time, give it a week or so, and then LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. I promise, it’ll tell you what it likes and doesn’t like. 😉
