Top benefits of healthy fats: What they are and how they help

Not all fat is evil. Fat--the healthy kind--is actually necessary and could even help you lose weight and look better. Take a look at some sources of healthy fat and what their benefits are.

Cutting down on harmful fats—saturated and trans fats (mostly found in food from animals)—is advised. But, healthy fats can also benefit your skin.
