Fat in Foods

Fat is an essential nutrient to our body. It absorbs and store vitamins A, D, E, K and carotene. Fat is also provides energies to our activity, biggest calories than carbo and protein. But you need to keep balance between calories consumed with physical activity you do. If you consume more calories than you use through physically activity, you will gain weight.

Toddlers and kids need fat in certain amount for brain and nerve system development, they can get it through whole fat milk.

Both animal and plant food is producing different types of fat, they are:

Saturated Fat
Found in animal product such in meat, the skin, poultry and high-fat dairy product like butter, full cream milk, cheese, coconut milk, vegetables oils, and used cooking oil. A diet high saturated fat may increase the risk of heart attack and raise your blood cholesterol level.

Unsaturated Fat, is divided by:

Monounsaturated Fat

Is the healthiest fat, these are found in plant foods such grape seeds, cashew, almond, avocado, sesame, pumpkin and hazelnuts.
Consume these foods may lower risk of heart disease, lower the cholesterol level, as protection against colon and breast cancer and as anti-oxidant.

Polyunsaturated Fat

This fat is high in calories, but it has essential oil like Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acid. Omega 3 can be found in fishes oil and seafood, known for lowering the risk of heart attack, breast cancer and Omega 6 can be found in safflower oil, sunflower oil, corn and soybean oil. A diet high in omega 6 can lower risk of cardiovascular disease, but also can be a trigger for asthma as it contribute to allergies.

Trans Fat
or Hydrogenated Fat
Is solid oil, and margarine/butter-substitute in foods manufacture. Nothing is good about this fat, the benefits are oppositely with others. This fats is found in ready made foods such baked food, snacks, sticks margarine, and fried foods.

Excellent awareness post.

All of the awareness we can offer is a very good thing:)

what about 'losing fat without losing weight'? Have you an idea for that?
fat? hmmm..to be frank, sy ini paling takut kalo kegemukan..jadi makanan benar2 dipilih jgn terlalu fatty (bener ga nih nulisnya)..
sebisa mungkin menghindar dari makanan yang fatnya terlalu banyak..
mending makan sayuran deh..

Hi: the problem with omega 3 and omega 6 is that our diets usually have 20 to 50 times omega 6 than omega 3 and we need a 1/1 ratio to stay healthy.

That is way you should not supplement with omega 3 and omega 6 capsules, only with omega 3.

Please, read more at Omega 3 Fish Oil Deficiency
