Why is there so much fat in these meals?

The fat will vary in our meals based on the type of meal that you are looking at.  Meals that are marked with a “K”, are designed for the Keto diet and are meant to have upwards of 80% calories from fat.  

In other meals, we still keep the fat slightly higher for very good reason!  Increasing the fat in your diet to around 35% of total calories has been associated with improved mood, sleep, hair/nail/skin health, micronutrient absorption, hormone balance, and heart health. The most beneficial of these fats are monounsaturated fats (like those found in avocados and olive oil).  At Factor 75%, we never use processed or hydrogenated fats and never use oils from inflammatory sources like corn, soy, or safflower.

Another beneficial fat that research has found is conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which is typically found in organic dairy and meat (like in our Factor 75 meals). CLA has been linked to increasing fat loss when losing weight.

Finally, there is also the well-known omega 3 fatty acids (a beneficial polyunsaturated fat for the heart). You will find these awesome fats in our salmon and grass fed beef dishes.

Overall, over consumption of any one nutrient is not healthy balance.  However, more and more research continues to show direct correlations with weight loss, energy level, and heart health when increasing fat intake from healthy sources. We'll take care of the portioning, you enjoy the benefits!
