Want to get to and maintain a healthy weight? Try adding healthy fats to your diet. High-carbohydrate, low-fat diets can create a “roller-coaster” effect – after eating, insulin spikes, then dips, leading to irresistible hunger. You can “flatten” the track by adding more heart-healthy fats to your meals, including an extra tablespoon or two of extra virgin olive oil to salads; plain, whole fat yogurt or kefir; avocado; a handful of raw nuts and choosing fattier fish for your entrée or on your salad.
