Congrats on your results! The Power Plate food groups (fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains) are made up of foods that naturally have <10% of their calories coming from fat. By eating these foods, you'll have a diet that is about 10% calories coming from fat assuming you limit oils, dining out, highly processed foods, and avoid animal products completely. Adding in small amounts of high-fat plant-based foods such as olives, nuts/seeds, and avocado can be done and still maintain a low-fat diet. Those foods, though high in fat, are healthier than other high-fat foods because they contain mostly unsaturated fats as opposed to trans or saturated fat. Nonetheless, they should be seen as a condiment, not the main feature of the meal. Excess fat in general can lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, and other health complications. Sounds like you're doing a great job.
