Fat provides you with energy and you need to consume healthy fatty foods – - but not too much. Monounsaturated fats are considered “healthy” or “good” fats and you should consume them twice a week. Fish, seeds, nuts, olive oil and canola make great dietary sources of monounsaturated fats. They help reduce the levels of “bad cholesterol” or LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol in the blood.
Trans fats and saturated fats, on the other hand, are considered “unhealthy” or “bad” fats. Animal products and butter contain lots of saturated fats and their consumption must be avoided. Trans fats can reduce the levels of “good cholesterol” or high density lipoprotein cholesterol in the blood. Moreover, they are also responsible for the formation of arterial plaque which can slow down the flow of blood to heart. Make sure that you cook foods in vegetable oils because they contain monounsaturated fats. You should regularly consume cod liver oils because they help maintain the health of your cardiovascular system.
