I've heard of good fat and bad fat. Anyone got info about this?[/QUOTE]
Mono unsaturated fat and poly-unsaturated fats are the healthy sort. you can find them in olive oil, rapeseed oil, canola oil, nuts and seeds. Mono-unsaturated fat helps reduce harmful low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) which can cause blocked arteries.
Poly-unsaturated fats are broken down into 2 groups; Omega 6 Fatty Acids (found in unrefined safflower, corn, sesame and sunflower oils), and • Omega 3 Fatty Acids, found in oily fish, linseed or flax oil, hemp oil, soybean oil, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, dark green vegetables.
Food containing saturated fat should be eaten in moderation like everything else. Saturated fats come from animal foods (meat, cheese, eggs, dairy).
Hope this helps!
