Fats: the good and the bad

 

I don’t know about you but when I read about fats, poly, trans, unsaturated, saturated, I get confused. So here it is.

BAD FATS                 

 Saturated Fat                                                           Trans Fat                                                                                                  

                                                                   

Saturated fats clog arteries and raise total                                                        Trans fats were “invented by scientists to provide a better shelf life for
and bad cholesterol (LDL) levels. Most saturated                                           prepared foods”. They are found in many commercially
fats come from animal products such as                                                            packaged foods such as french fries, cake, cookies, crackers, icing,
meat, dairy and eggs.                                                                                                margarine, and microwave popcorn. Trans fats raise total and bad                                                                                                                                              cholesterol levels (LDL).
GOOD FATS
 

 Monounsaturated Fat                              Polyunsaturated Fat                        

                                  

                                                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                                                        

                                                                                                                                                           Polyunsaturated fats also lower cholesterol levels.
 These fats can lower total and bad cholesterol                                                                Salmon, fish, corn and  sunflower oils all contain
while increasing good cholesterol levels. Nuts, including cashews,                          polyunsaturated  fats.
walnuts, peanuts and oils such as canola and olive are high in
monounsaturated fats.
