The Good Fat Vs. The Bad Fat
Our mothers used to say a little fat is (not) bad for you, and the truth is, it really isn’t. We need some good fat in our bodies to help us keep beautiful and shapely hourglass figure. Just think about it, I am sure Marilyn Monroe was not sitting around eating salads all day. Curvaceous women achieve their shapes by eating healthy food that’s rich in good fats, proteins, carbs, and fiber, besides our diets must have some fat, that is ‘good fat’ of course to maintain a healthy weight.
Dietary fat is one of today’s most controversial health topics. “Low-fat”, “reduced-fat” and “no-fat” product labels abound, as do warnings to avoid “bad fats” and advice to eat more “good fats”. Then there’s the issue of how “good fats” become “bad fats” when heated beyond a certain temperature.
Avocados, eggs, nuts, olive oil, and fatty fish like Salmon are all good for us. These fatty foods supplies the body with essential nutrients like the omega-3,6, and 9’s that feed our brain and other organs, also essential fatty acids from the omegas protect the heart and raise good cholesterol levels.
Consuming the ‘good fats’ is really easy, and all you need to do is opt for healthy fats like raw peanut butter, olive oil, avocados, eggs, lean, Greek yogurt, protein like Salmon and Poultry just to name a few. Also, opting for cooking your foods in light oils (like avocado and oil oil), instead of butter or grease. Also, try to avoid preparing your food in the wrong ways, food preparations is very important to maintaining the quality and healthiness of your foods, you should avoid deep frying, burning, or overcooking your foods to preserve the nutrient density and natural fats in your foods. Deep frying cooks foods at an extremely (high temperature) that actually changes the composition of the fats in the food from monounsaturated fats that help protect against heart disease to saturated trans fat that raises bad cholesterol (LDL’s) low density lipoproteins that increase the risk of obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
So as you can see not all fat is bad, so next time you’re opting for a healthy meal remember the fat is not always a bad thing.
