Eat These Super Fats to Lose Weight

Fat is essential for producing hormones, absorbing fat-soluble vitamins, effectively balancing blood sugar, and hydrating skin from the inside out.

Unsalted Grass-Fed Butter
Grass-fed butter is loaded with vitamin K, which is critical to both bone and cardiovascular health. It also contains butyrate, or butyric acid, which helps to fight inflammation. Bonus: It also offers skin benefits. This healthy fat is also high in vitamin A, a natural skin clarifier, and D, your skin’s first line of defense against the sun’s harmful UV rays. But most importantly, this type of butter delivers on fats. Full of omega-3 fatty acids and medium-chain triglycerides, ghee or grass-fed butter is processed by the liver and used for energy that can keep you satiated through the next meal.

Avocado
It helps fight heart disease, periodontal disease, arthritis, and psoriasis and also may help burn belly fat. When consumed, the healthy fat helps stabilize blood sugar, allowing your body to release fat, protect lean muscle, and increase your energy. That monounsaturated fat hydrates skin too. Avocados are also a primary source of vitamin E, which stimulates collagen production and benefits skin elasticity.

Egg Yolk
One egg yolk contains 13 essential nutrients. The yolk is rich in B vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin E, selenium, and biotin, which promotes healthy skin, hair, and nails. Egg yolks are also loaded with choline, a vital micro-nutrient that helps the body absorb fat used to form DNA and cell structures in addition to improving cognitive function.
