GET GOOD FATS- You might think you should be avoiding fats for a healthy diet,but thats not a must.there are healthy fats out there that have plenty of benefits ,including fighting chronic inflammation. Essential fatty acids found in olive oil,certain fishes and nuts are important. Omega-3 and 6ˆ-fatty acids are essential at lowering inflammation,so start eating walnurs,salmon and chia seeds.
