Saturated, Unsaturated and Trans Fats
For years, nutritionists and doctors have preached that a low-fat diet is the key to losing weight, managing cholesterol, and preventing health problems. But more than just the amount of fat, it’s the types of fat you eat that really matter! You need some fat in your diet but not too much. Fats give you energy and help your body absorb vitamins. Dietary fat also plays a major role in your cholesterol levels. So now that we know what are fats lets clasify them...
What are the consequences of fats?
There can be many consequences so you have to eat moderately since it gives you energy , here we will classify the diseases by the type of fat (saturated , unsaturated and trans)
Tips to be healthier
Your daily fat intake should be less than 25% to 35% of your total caloric intake. Out of this total, up to 7% can be saturated fats and less than 1% should be trans fats. The remaining fat in your diet should be from sources of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
With so many different sources of dietary fat—some good and some bad—the choices can get confusing. But the bottom line is simple: don’t go no-fat, go good fat.

Saturated fats
Saturated fat is fat that consists of triglycerides containing only saturated fatty acids. Eating foods that contain saturated fats raises the level of cholesterol in your blood. High levels of blood cholesterol increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. Be aware! too, that many foods high in saturated fats are also high in cholesterol – which raises your blood cholesterol even higher.
Unsaturated fats
Unsaturated fats are like the *good fats*. Unsaturated fats include the two heart healthy choices – polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. Found primarily in fish, plant oils, seeds and nuts, these “healthy” fats have been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels and lessen your risk of cardiovascular disease. But be careful! they still are fats, and intake should be moderate to maintain the best health.
Trans Fats
Trans fats are a type of unsaturated fat which is uncommon in nature but can be created artificially.Trans Fats are one of the worst fats! so don't eat it too much or Trans fats can raise your bad (LDL) cholesterol levels and lower your good (HDL) cholesterol levels. Eating trans fats increases your risk of developing heart disease and stroke. It’s also associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
