Regardless of what number shows up on the scale, it's important to eat a healthy diet. Unfortunately, there's a lot of conflicting information out there that makes it difficult to know what the healthiest way to eat really is.
Humans evolved with a taste for fatty foods to build up energy stores for when food wasn't available. Of course, our lifestyles have changed and food is far more available now in the developed world, so while saving up energy isn't as important as it once was, fat is still an important part of the human diet.
While many people know that not all types of fat are created equally, the idea of "good" fat and "bad" fat is still not as straightforward as it may seem.
