Reasons to Eat Less Fat and Learn to Spot Fat and Know the Good Fats

Any way you slice it, excess dietary fat seems to promote disease. We'd like to remind you of the benefits of keeping your fat intake at a healthful level and live longer with quality of life we all seek.

  1. We Can Protect Our Heart:

    People with heart disease have blood vessels clogged with large deposits of fatty substances. An indicator of this condition is the blood cholesterol level: the higher the count, the greater the risk of blockages. For most people, a primary influence on the cholesterol level, up or down, is saturated fat in foods.

  2. We Can Slim Down:

    Several studies have shown that excess weight is directly linked to the proportion of fat we eat, not the number of calories. Some scientists believe that the body prefers to burn carbohydrates and store fat as backup fuel. So the excess fat you eat becomes the excess fat stored in your body. To slim down, count fat not calories.

  3. We Can Lower the Risk of Certain Cancers:

    There is compelling evidence that several kinds of cancer – specifically colon, prostate, breast, lung, and bladder are more prevalent among the populations with the history of high-fat diets. Research suggests that the byproducts of fat metabolism may stimulate the growth of cancer cells; or fat may combine with other cancer causing chemicals to promote tumor growth.

We can track down hidden fat by knowing what names it uses as an alias. Here are some of the list of names fat has been know to use:

  • Lard
  • Animal fat
  • Animal shortening
  • Shortening
  • Coconut oil, cream
  • Palm oil
  • Palm kernel oil
  • Cream of any kind
  • Partially hydrogenated oil
  • Hydrogenated oil
  • Chicken, beef, or port fat
  • Any meat fat
  • Meat fat
  • Butter
  • Butterfat
  • Whole milk solids

Here is the list of good fats that you have green light to use instead of saturated fats:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids (found in fish, seafood and some plants.)
  • Unsaturated fats
    • Mono-unsaturated
    • Polyunsaturated
  • Peanut oil
  • Safflower oil
  • Corn oil
  • Canola oil
  • Soybean oil
  • Fish oil
  • Olive oil
  • Cottonseed oil

Remember, everything is good – but only in moderation!
