Don't fear the fat...Everybody knows that good fats come mainly from vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fish. But fat from other sources serve a purpose when eaten in moderation. There are two broad categories of beneficial fats: monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
Pork really is the other white meat. Of course, the downside to this is that fat is what makes pork taste so good which explains why ham and bacon are far more popular than leaner cuts. In case you don't know, gently rendered pork fat 'lard' is really the closest substance to the natural oils in human skin. So, remember, there's no reason to fear fat because some fat in your diet is really good for you...your skin.
