The Label Says... Monounsaturated

  • What it does: Protects your heart by lowering LDL levels.
  • Where it comes from: Mainly plant oils, such as canola, olive, or peanut.
  • How much you need: Your total fat intake should be 20 to 35 percent of your total daily calories. Most of the fat you eat, says Mitchell, should come from monounsaturated or polyunsaturated sources. Have a salad with sliced avocado and oil-and-vinegar dressing for lunch and salmon for dinner and you're set for the day.
