Fatty Foods That Are Good For You

By Sara Butler

People often associate fatty foods with things that aren't healthy for you, but the truth is that there are many foods that are naturally high in fat that are good for you. In fact, the dietary fat found in many foods can help your body to protect itself against heart disease, regulate hormones, and make you feel fuller for longer.

The trick is finding the right foods that are naturally high in fat because not all fat is created equal. It doesn't help make things less confusing that there are different types of fat out there and many aren't healthy for you.

To help, here is a list of foods that contain healthy fats that, when eaten in moderation, can help you to stay healthy and reach your health and wellness goals.

Grass-Fed Beef

Red meat is something people have been told to stay away from because it's often high in saturated fat that is bad for your heart. But in moderation, certain types of red meat can provide a dose of healthy fat.

A great example is grass-fed beef which is high in omega-3 fatty acid. It's also naturally leaner and has fewer calories than other types of beef available. So, when you're itching for a good steak, grass-fed is the way to go.


Avocados are full of heart-healthy fats. It's important to remember that you should enjoy foods like avocados in moderation and limit yourself to one half or less, but you also shouldn't fear the fats it contains. These fats are monounsaturated and can help you to feel fuller for longer. Plus, avocados are full of fiber and protein.


Nuts are full of polyunsaturated fats that are good for your metabolism and have been found to have a positive impact on blood sugar. Nuts such as walnuts are a great dietary source of omega-3 fatty acids and can help keep your blood pressure steady and reduce your levels of stress.


You don't have to stick with just egg whites for eggs to be healthy. In fact, consuming the whole egg, yolk and all, is what is recommended since the yolk has all the healthy stuff you need. Eggs are full of a nutrient called choline, which helps to reduce the fat your body stores around your liver. Plus, they're just really good for you, so go ahead and have that morning veggie scramble.

In moderation, these foods are great for you. So don't be afraid to add them to your diet.
