Nutrition Facts: Bringing Back Fat
Over her many years in practice, Keri Glassman, MS, RD, CDN, has learned the importance of fat and the role it plays in health and wellness. 

It's been a long journey, especially after the health industry -- and thus the food industry -- jumped on the low-fat craze based on an interpretation of research on cholesterol. 

Fats satiate, help you absorb certain vitamins, prevent inflammation, and can even help you burn bad fat and decrease unhealthy cholesterol in your body. 

The key is to choose the right fats and the best quality fats. 

Aim for a little bit of fat at every meal to make up approximately 30% of your daily calories. Because you feel more satisfied when eating fats, your total caloric load may decrease. 

Keri joins Dr. Taz to discuss the new attitude on fats, which foods you should be incorporating into your daily diet, and her thoughts on the buzzed-about ketogenic diet.
