Here at Well+Good, we recently spoke with registered dietitian Mia Syn, MS, RDN, author of Mostly Plant-Based, who shared some of the top short- and long-term benefits of following a predominantly plant-based diet. One of the biggest takeaways? That consuming more plant-based whole foods—like fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts, and seeds—can help reduce your risk of chronic illness and boost your longevity.

However, like all things in life, moderation is key—and certain foods can have an adverse effect on your health (yes, even plant-based ones) when consumed in excess. According to Syn, this includes added sugars, alcohol, and—today’s topic of discussion—saturated fat.

The good news? “Nearly all plant foods—with a few unique exceptions, like coconut and palm oil—are free of saturated fat, which is directly linked to elevated cholesterol levels,” Syn says. If that doesn’t highlight the significant heart health benefits you’ll reap when you prioritize adding plant foods to your diet, we don’t know what does. Here, we followed up with the registered dietitian to learn more about why it’s important to note the saturated fat content in all foods, including plant-based ones. Plus, she explains what the hype around coconut oil is really about.
