Menopausal women often fear weight gain and increased risk of heart disease. But good fats are important for energy, metabolism and brain health. Instead of avoiding dietary fat, registered holistic nutritionist Andrea Donsky encouraged a national Canadian TV audience to embrace good fats such as Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil. 

She explained that palm oil can be used to make everything from popcorn to stir fry, and it can be added to grass-fed butter when sauteeing to help keep food from tasting burned. “Research is showing that dietary saturated fat doesn’t lead to heart disease as we once thought,” reassured Donsky. Instead, she cautioned women to avoid partially hydrogenated oils such as those commonly found in margarines.
