Tracking Healthy Fats (Q&A 41)
One of the best things about tracking your food is the ability to look back and reflect on where your macros are coming from.
Get your healthy fats in.
If you’re noticing that your fat content comes mostly from fried foods, dressings and processed items like chips, it might be beneficial to consider swapping them out.
Rather than rely on processed foods to fill your fat content, try opting for healthy fats such as avocados, nuts, seeds and healthy oils like sesame, coconut, and olive. You can even hit your target with fatty fish like salmon and anchovies.
Snacking when you work from home.
If you work from home, snacking can be hard to avoid. That’s why Adee recommends keeping the foods you want to avoid out of sight and out of mind. That means no bowls of nuts or candy sitting out!
Sometimes it’s easy to get distracted and completely forget to eat or finding yourself eating while you work just to be more efficient. Research shows that it’s actually best to take a break from your job and come back. Completely disconnecting will make you work more efficiently.
