    Host: Are their certain fats I should eat more of?

    Elizabeth Rahavi: The dietary guidelines do recommend that there are some fats that you should eat more of, and these are sources of unsaturated fats. If you are a fish lover this include Salmon, Tuna, or Mackerel. If you don't enjoy fish you can get these unsaturated fats from nuts such as almonds, walnuts, peanut, even peanut butter. If you don't enjoy nuts or fish you can get it from avocado or just cook with oils such as vegetable oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, or olive oil.
