YOUR DIET DOESN’T INCLUDE ENOUGH GOOD FAT
Yes, you should avoid trans fats and saturated fats. But healthy fats—from fish, avocados, and nuts—have anti-inflammatory properties that help regulate your immune system, says Blum.
Fix it: Avoid processed foods, and limit your intake of animal meats (which are loaded with saturated fats). Meanwhile, you’ll want to add foods like salmon, sardines, almonds, and kale to your diet since they’re all packed with healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fats.
