There is so much conflicting advice out there about fats and with the introduction of many fad diets and fad foods, it can make healthy eating confusing and leave you unsure of what to eat.

Dr Welma Storehouse provides information about the many reasons why everyone should include healthy fats like avocados, nuts, seeds, fish, extra virgin olive oil and eggs in their diet every day.
