     Fitness Tips For 9/26/2007
Is Fat Healthy?

Though you read everywhere that  you need to cut out as much fat 
as possible, this is only partially true.

There are good fats and bad fats.  Fat is mainly present in a 
food in the form of triglycerides. Triglycerides consist of 
glycerol and three fatty acids.  These fatty acids can be 
saturated, such as in butter, or unsaturated, such as in some 
margarines.  There are also monounsaturated fatty acids, these 
are found in olive oil and peanut oil.

Saturated fats are considered the "bad fats", unsaturated fats are 
considered the good fats.  

Saturated fats cause make up a waxy plaque that may trouble the 
arteries.  Saturated fats may increase cholesterol levels. Most 
saturated fats tend to be solid at room temperature, with the 
exception of tropical oils. It is found mostly in meat and dairy 
products, as well as some vegetable oils, such as coconut and 
palm oils (tropical oils).

Polyunsaturated Fat tends to lower blood cholesterol levels. It 
is found mostly in plant sources. 

Monounsaturated Fat tends to lower LDL cholesterol (the "bad" 
cholesterol). It is found in both plant and animal products.

Though margarine sounds good,  the way it is made is not.  
Because of the fact that the food industry needed to make the 
margarine easier to spread, they hydrogenated the fats. During 
this process they create Trans-fats, which are as bad as 
saturated fats. Trans-fats occur in many processed foods.  
Always check the label to see if any ingredients are listed as 
hydrogenated. If they are, try to find something else to eat, 
the main reason for this is that trans-fats are NOT listed in 
the little energy charts which they print on there, so you 
never know how much of these trans-fats you'll be taking in.

Unfortunately there's no way around saturated fats.  You could 
stop eating, but chances of survival are probably worse in 
that case then when you're just eating butter.  

Try to keep a proper balance,  20-30% of your daily energy 
intake should come from fats, of this, NO MORE than 10% should 
be saturated fats.  Remember that fats contain 9 calories, 
whereas carbohydrates and protein only contain 4 calories.  

Read those labels!
