whole-fat: a fat that is inherent in the food ingredient itself, and not pressed or extracted from a food as an isolated part.
Whole-fat is in its whole form as it occurs in Nature, with all it’s co-factors that aid digestion and utilization of the fat still intact.
I make a point of not eating oil because it is a fractionated food instead of a whole food, and is industrially processed.
Whole-fat foods include nuts, seeds, avocados, coconuts, dairy products that still contain their natural fat, and others.
A small amount of fat is necessary for many body functions. Too much fat can cause health problems. When you eat the right amount of fat from the right whole sources, your body benefits from fat.
