Dietary fats are essential to good health. For healthy weight loss you should take in at least 20% fat(30% would be better) Fat is needed for many functions in the body. (Mainly hormones) Keep In mind that saturated fat needs to be at less than 10%of your total calories (less is even better). Saturated fats are used in testosterone production so cutting them off completey would be a big mistake, but in excess they are deadly. Ensure that all fats are from healthy sources- nuts, olive oil, fish oils, etc. Believe it or not- I tend to shed more body fat when I increase fat inatke and decrease carb intake (while I keep protein intake constant).
