Fats

Fats are an essential part of your diet regardless of their bad reputation. They (Fats) provide a major form of stored energy, insulate the body and protect our organs. Fats also carry nutrients throughout the body, satisfy hunger, and add taste to foods. However not all Fats are created equal. There are 3 types:

Saturated Fats:

  • Solid at room temperature
  • found primarily in animal foods ( real meats, poultry with skin, lard, butter, whole milk and dairy products)
  • found in topical oils (palm, palm kernel, coconut )

Mono Saturated Fats:

  • liquid at room temp
  • found in live oil, canola oil, peanuts

Poly Saturated Fats:

  • liquid at room temperature
  • found in fish, corn, wheat, nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils

* Those Fats should be less than or equal to 10 of your total body intake.
Trans Fats: Trans Fats are created when foods are manufactured. High Fat diets are associated with many diseases like heart disease, cancer, obesity, and diabetes.
