Will replacing bad fats with good fats help in achieving fat loss?

I’m on a 90-day program to slim down for beach season.

Goals:
Cut down waist size
lose fat
cut body fat from 14.6% to 8%
lose belly
get toned

I already have a diet and exercise regimen.

since I’m weeding out almost all sources of fats from my diet, I want to know if taking an Omega 3 supplement help my body slim down, since I’ll be taking in good fats instead of no fats at all.

    Yes replacing bad fat with good fat will definetely help you lose weight. But even more importantly, it will make you healthier.

    we all need fats. Fats helps nutrient absorption, nerve transmission, maintaining cell membrane integrity etc. However, when consumed in excess amount, fats contribute to weight gain, heart disease and certain types of cancer. Fats are not created equal. Some fats promote our health positively while other increase our risks of heart disease. The key is to replace bad fats with good fats in our diet.

    Good fats:

    Monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) while increasing HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol). Nuts including peanuts, walnuts, almonds and pistachios, avocado, canola and olive oil are high in MUFAs. MUFAs have also been found to help in weight loss, particularly body fat.

    Polyunsaturated fats also lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol. Seafood like salmon and fish oil, as well as corn, soy, safflower and sunflower oils are high in polyunsaturated fats. Omega 3 fatty acids belong to this group

    Bad Fats:

    Saturated fats raise total blood cholesterol as well as LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol). Saturated fats are mainly found in animal products such as meat, dairy, eggs and seafood. Some plant foods are also high in saturated fats such as coconut oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil.

    Trans fats are invented as scientists began to “hydrogenate” liquid oils so that they can withstand better in food production process and provide a better shelf life. As a result of hydrogenation, trans fatty acids are formed. Trans fatty acids are found in many commercially packaged foods, commercially fried food such as French Fries from some fast food chains, other packaged snacks such as microwaved popcorn as well as in vegetable shortening and hard stick margarine.

    Here are a few tips:

    avoid using cooking oils that are high in saturated fats and/or trans fats such as coconut oil, palm oil or vegetable shortening. Instead, use oils that are low in saturated fats and high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats such as canola oil, olive oil and flax seed oil.
    minimize using commercially packaged foods which are high in trans fats. Always read labels to look for trans-fat free alternatives.
    as saturated fats are found in animals products, use lower-fat version dairy such as 1% or skim milk instead of whole milk. Trim visible fats and skins from meat products.

    Quick Answer: Yes

    Consumption of healthy fats such as monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and Omega-3 fatty acids all help to cut down weight gain and aid in trimming down current fat stores in your body. If you want to lose weight during your 90 day period, watch your calories and cut out as much saturated and trans fats you can.
