What do people do to lose weight?

Good fat also starts decreasing from the body due to the ups and downs. Non-vegetarians can get good fat through fish and meat. When it comes to vegetarians, they have fewer options. If you are also a vegetarian and wondering what to eat for good fat, then this article is only for you.

As far as you do exercise, it is fine. But later when it comes to dieting, people first start reducing the fat from their plate which is a wrong move. 

A few things about Fat

Vegetarians usually eat a lot of things like butter, paneer, cream to meet the required amount of fat. Those who are conscious about their health, stay completely away from it. Let us tell you that both these options are considered bad for health. Ghee and butter increase unhealthy fat, which also increases cholesterol.

Fat only makes you fat, so this is a myth. Obesity increases only when excess fat is consumed. Just like our body needs protein, vitamins, and nutrients, in the same way, fat is also needed. 

Fat keeps the energy in the body. Fat makes it easier for vitamins to be absorbed by the intestines. Healthy cells are made from fat. Fat controls the temperature of the body. Fat keeps the skin glowing

Good Fat Foods

Good fat is very much needed by the body. Now the question arises that, how can vegetarians fulfill its deficiency without non-veg? So here we have a solution for that too.

Soy Milk

Polyunsaturated soy milk is a good source of fat. You can consume it.

Vegetable Oil

Olive oil, sunflower oil, or canola oil are rich in good fats. These oils can be used in cooking, if you like to eat ghee, then use homemade ghee.


Include soybeans rich in omega-6 fatty acids in the diet.


If you are fond of mayonnaise, then before buying, check the amount of good fat in it. Make a sandwich and eat it instead of butter.


Tofu made from soy milk looks similar to paneer, but it is considered a very good source of good fat.


Almonds, walnuts, and cashews are rich sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Therefore, the consumption of these nuts is beneficial for vegetarians.


As tasty as it is in food, it is rich in good fat.

Olive and Avocado

Among the fruits, avocados and olives are considered very healthy because they contain monosaturated fats.

Green Vegetables

Vegetables are generally fat-free. But after cooking and frying, they become rich in fat which is bad for health. You can eat vegetables by baking or boiling them.

Take care

No matter how careful you are about your health, sometimes there is little information about what kind of fat we are consuming. The amount of fat in the body is neither too much nor less. For this, consuming healthy fat is a deal of wisdom.

If you are a vegetarian, then include things with good and healthy fats in your diet. This article of ours will also help you to a great extent in this. You should also keep in mind that, if the amount of fat in your body is not in good quantity, then the disease will also remain away.

According to research, one gram of fat provides at least 8 grams of calories. Therefore, do not forget to take more than 40 to 50 grams of fat every day. But before starting any new diet, definitely consult a doctor.
