- Overall, a low-fat diet is not healthier for most people.
- Balance saturated fat intake (meat, dairy, coconut oil) with healthier fats (olive oil, nuts, avocados).
- Use vegetable oils sparingly (canola, corn, peanut oil).
- Do all of this in the context of a varied, fiber-rich, low glycemic index eating pattern, such as the Mediterranean Diet.
