When it comes to fat in foods the usual rule is to stay way from foods high in fat. But there is an exception to the rule, MUFA. MUFAs are monounsaturated fatty acids, plant-based fats found in some foods. These are the foods that contain the good and healthy fat (monounsaturated fatty acids). Studies show that these good for you fats enhance heart health and protect against chronic disease. And now the latest research shows that these dietary fats "may" even target the dreaded belly fat and lead to a flatter stomach! Remember all fats are high in calories so use MUFAs only in moderation.
