Unsaturated fats are healthier than saturated fats.
Unsaturated fats include such items as vegetables oils, nuts and oily fish.
Saturated fats are found in meat, poultry and full fat dairy products. Processed and fast foods also contain saturated fats as can many bakery products, ice cream and palm and coconut oil.
Saturated fats cause the body to produce more cholesterol which raises blood cholesterol levels In actual fact, the amount of cholesterol found in foods is not as important as the amount of saturated fat found. Saturated fat stimulates the production of LDL cholesterol which is the one we should be concerned about. LDL cholesterol increases blood cholesterol levels and with it the risk of heart disease. Please remember, saturated fat raises cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels more than dietary cholesterol does.
