  • MUFA consumption should follow the same guidelines that we always use when discussing diet and nutrition: consume a variety of foods and choose a combination of MUFAs and PUFAs for the best overall health benefits. There are no “magic diet” foods, even though some foods may have health and fat-loss advantages.

    MUFAs are fats, and thus are calorie-dense compared to other macro-nutrients like carbohydrates and protein. It’s the amount of calories you eat that ultimately results in fat gain or loss.
