Are healthy fats good for reducing the risk for heart disease?

I have been following a low fat diet for awhile now in an effort to lose weight and be healthier. Now, I’m being told that it is better to eat a higher fat diet that is comprised of healthy fats. What does the latest research show?

A recent study conducted in Spain and published online in the New England Journal of Medicine found that a daily dose of healthy fats might be a better choice than a low fat diet.

The Mediterranean diet is rich in olive oil, vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, fish, and a lower consumption of meat and saturated fats. This diet is relatively high in healthy fats, and has proven to have significant health benefits.

The study had participants that were all at an elevated risk for heart disease. Everyone was placed in one of three groups. The first group ate a low fat diet, the second a typical Mediterranean diet while the third ate a Mediterranean diet with extra nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts and cashews.

The research concluded that both groups eating the Mediterranean diet had a 30% reduced risk for heart disease as opposed to the low fat group.

So add olives, nuts and other healthy fats to your diet while lowering your consumption of red meats to decrease your risk of contracting heart disease.
