Fat isn't necessarily a dietary evil. In fact, according to a new study featured on Science Daily, consuming certain fats may actually be more beneficial than depriving yourself of them altogether.

Researchers say that adults should consume 20 to 35 percent of their regular calorie intake from dietary fat, lessen their consumption of saturated fats, and increase their levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Fat, in spite of all the bad publicity it's been getting, is actually an important nutrient, as it helps build healthy cells, provides energy, and promotes better skin.

In order to have the right kind of fat in your diet, researchers recommend increasing your intake of fish, nuts, and seeds and to cut down on sweets and ready-to-eat snacks.
