What to Eat- Part III “The Scary Fats”

Posted on November 3, 2009

Now for what everyone thinks is scary: Fat.  the different types of fats are:

  • Monounsaturated Fats
  • Saturated Fats
  • polyunsaturated Fats
  • Trans Fats

Monounsaturated Fats are the healthiest fats.  Our body needs a certain amount for survival, and therse are what are referred to when you hear people talking about the “good” fats.  Monounsaturated fats are found in producst such as olive oil and nuts.

The other types of fats should be consumed in very small abounts.  Saturated fats are found in your cookies and chips, polyunsaturated  fats in your salad dressings and mayo, and trans fats can be found in your pastries and candies and sweets.

To keep a low fat diet, find alternatives to the fats you are consuming.  For example instead of butter, use Smart Balance spray.  Instead of mayo, use honey mustard, or find a no-fat mayo.  The best option in any diet is to eat the healthiest choices you can find.
