View the Fat-Fighting Foods Slideshow

(HealthDay News) -- Though you shouldn't eat too much of any fat, some fats actually are good for you. These include unsaturated fats, which are rich in antioxidants.

The University of Michigan Health System suggests these sources of healthy fats:

  • Opt for olive, canola or flaxseed oil-based salad dressings.
  • Top fresh green salads with avocados, olives or nuts.
  • Snack on seeds and nuts.
  • Cook with olive oil or canola oil.
  • Eat fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon.
