Things you should know about good and bad fats

So there are two sides to fat too. Some are good and others are not. It is better to be wise than repent later. Good fats are great for the heart while bad ones are well…bad. Let us take a look at the different kinds of fats.

Saturated fats

These kind of fats are obtained mostly from animals. Some examples are full-fat dairy products and some varied amounts in egg and poultry. You need saturated fats but only in lesser amounts. The part of your diet that consists of saturated fats should mostly be from low-fat or fat-free products.

Unsaturated fats

This is what is the recipe for a healthy heart. Unsaturated fats can be mono or polyunsaturated fats. While hazelnuts, almonds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and olive oil are rich in monounsaturated, fish, flax seeds, soybean oil, and sunflower oil have polyunsaturated fats. Fish contain Omega-3 fatty acids that are extremely beneficial for the heart.

Trans fats

This is the worst thing for your heart. Since saturated fats are mostly solid at room temperature, extra hydrogen is added to them. This is used in baked goods etc. so you must be aware.
