Another error in the low fat diet is the belief that all dietary fat is unhealthy. The truth is that some fats are not desirable, but some types of fats are not only good for your health, they are absolutely essential. They are referred to as “essential fatty acids”. These essential nutrients are required for proper formation and functioning of important brain and nervous system tissues. Deficiencies in these critical nutrients can lead to serious health problems.
