Diet Guide For Good And Bad Fats – What To Eat And What Not

Introduction And Background
The topic of the article might confuse you a little. It reads ‘good’ and bad fats. Now, the majority would agree that fats are bad but we just can’t let go of them but nobody would think that some fats are good too! The average person wouldn’t even know that there are actually different types of fats. There are saturated fats and unsaturated fats, triglycerides etc. There are essential fatty acids that your body needs and then there are non-essential fatty acids. This article will improve your knowledge on your fats and by the end you’ll probably know what to eat and what to avoid.

Those who are obese probably hate the word fat. And no one can really blame them. For the past decades, almost all the diets that have been made have been low-fat or do not have the word fat in it at all. The reality is that it does not matter about the amount of fat that is being taken in; the type of fat is what matters.

The Necessity Of Fat
The essential fats are actually quite necessary to your body and since your body is unable to produce them naturally, you must have them in your diet. For instance, fat is able to insulate your body against the cold and it also helps to pass around vitamins in the body, the fat soluble vitamins which are vitamin A, D, E and K. We all are well aware of the importance of vitamins and their storage and fat happens to help in just that. Fat is also good for skin. You might have noticed that fat people usually have better and a glowing skin than skinny people. It is also vital for vision as well as brain development in adolescents.

Good Fat – What To Eat
Unsaturated fats, whether they are monounsaturated or polyunsaturated, are the good fats. They should be taken in proper amount and are not a hazard to health as some people might think of fat to be. Don’t be afraid, they are good for the heart and for your blood vessels. They do not raise your cholesterol levels but actually might bring them to a decent normal level. For good and normal health, the good fats are pretty important. Here are some foods that you should eat in order to get the good fats in your system!

  • The oils that you cook your food in should be olive oil, canola oil, sunflower oil or peanut oil. Some even use Sesame oils but that is entirely up to you. These choices should be the only ones you select your cooking oil from. Soybean oil is also a good option but only if the others are not liked.
  • Nuts of all kinds, hazelnuts, almonds and cashews also contain good fats in them.

Bad Fats – What Not To Eat
The saturated fats are the bad fats, the ones that can block your arteries and raise your cholesterol to dangerous levels. They are the ones that are not liked and probably should be avoided if you want to lead a healthy and happy life. Along with saturated fats, Trans fat is also pretty bad for your body. Here is a list of foods that you should think of putting on your ‘not to eat’ list. And if you are facing health problems or are obese, you should remove these items from your diet immediately.

  • Meat is good for you but avoid eating the fatty parts of it. There are fatty parts of lamb, pork and other meat too which shouldn’t be eaten.
  • Some dairy products also contain bad fats but since dairy products are not something that can be avoided completely, it is best to take it in moderate amounts. If you eat them all the time or more than necessary, it can be bad for your skin as well.
  • Packet foods such as a bag of chips or candy bars also have Trans fat or saturated fat in them. They are high calorie snacks too which lead to obesity.
  • Pizza and donuts also have saturated fat in them. Even though they taste good, they are not really healthy food.

The list of bad fats might be harsh but we all know that fast food and packaged substances like candy and all are not really good for the health. If you do not want to face any problems in old age or make your problems any worse than they already are, be careful with fat. Most people have heart attacks due to blockage of coronary arteries. And how does that happen? It happens because of high cholesterol levels. And we all know where that comes from. So be careful. You have the information now to decide.
