Speaker: Are their certain fats I should eat more of? Elizabeth Rahavi: The dietary guidelines do recommend that there are some fats that you should eat more of. And these are sources of unsaturated fats. If you are a fish lover this includes salmon, tuna, or mackerel. If you don't enjoy fish you can get these unsaturated fats from nuts such as almonds, walnuts, peanut, even peanut butter. If you don't enjoy nuts or fish you can get it from avocado or just cook with oil such as vegetable oil, canola oil, sunflower oil or olive oil. If you are interested in getting more personalized dietary fat information for your diet, you can go to www.mypyramid.gov. This is the government website for consumers to give you information that can help you incorporate more healthful life style changes into your diet.
