Fats: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Oils, Oils, Oils

In our 30 day fitness and nutrition challenge we’ve been talking about good fats and bad fats. The subject always seems like to be such a hot topic!

Also, recent studies have claimed that “good fats” such as coconut oils may be just as bad as “bad fats.”
