Fats – What is the Big Deal?
There are numerous types of fat. Your body makes its own fat from taking in excess calories. Some fats are found in foods from plants and animals and are known as dietary fat. Dietary fat is one of three macronutrients, along with protein and carbohydrates, that provide energy for your body. Fat is essential to your health because it supports a number of your body’s functions.
- Bad Fats: Saturated & Trans (from animals and food processing, increase risk of cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol)
- Healthy Fats: Monounsaturated & Polyunsaturated (from plants and oils, improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels, decrease risk of heart disease and diabetes)
