Fats are often categorized as good fats or bad fats. Fats like Omega-3 fatty acids and some others like this are categorized as good fats because they are good for both heart and brain, and for the general wellbeing of the body. While bad fats are not considered good for both heart and brain and usually increase the risk of certain diseases especially associated with heart and brain.|
Eating more good fats can improve the overall performance of the body and brain and reduces belly fat and fat around the waistline.
Choosing healthy fats:
Eating healthy fats and avoiding bad ones is not a big deal actually. You just need simple knowledge to adopt healthier choices without sacrificing your urge for taste.
What are dietary fats?
Just like the proteins and other nutrients, Fat is another important nutrient that plays an important rule in the proper functioning of the body and other human organs. We need healthy fats to boost immunity, strengthen mind and heart, and to absorb other essential nutrients like vitamin C, K, zinc, iron, etc.
Traditionally, we believe that consuming more fatty things means putting more fats on the body, increased cholesterol levels, increase uric acid, and more risk of certain hearts and blood vessel complications. But, it’s not true generally.
As we know, eating fats can be either good or bad for health depending upon things and quantity that we eat. Eating more saturated fats and artificially prepared fats are mostly responsible for unhealthy blames like, blocked arteries, increased weight, increased uric acid, and high risk of heart stroke. But healthy (good) fats which contain omega-3 fatty acid and unsaturated fats have way opposite effects than this.
Actually, good fats are essential to fight against mental fatigue, to weight gain, and strengthen the working of many human organs.
By consuming more good fats without understanding the difference between healthy and unhealthy fats, you can enjoy boosted energy level, general wellbeing, and flush out unhealthy things from the body.
Dietary fat and cholesterol:
Dietary fats play a chief part in maintaining cholesterol levels. Cholesterol is a wax-type thing that our body demands to smooth functioning of blood vassal and other unwanted body secretions. It is essential for body functioning, but excessive consumption of cholesterol can disturb the functioning of many human organs. Just like the good and bad fats, cholesterol is also categorized as either good or bad.
• HDL(high-density lipoprotein) is considered good cholesterol that is present in our blood vassal.
• LDL(low-density lipoprotein) is considered bad cholesterol that is present in our body, skin, and right over the muscles.
• You have to keep LDL level short and HDL level high for the overall wellbeing of the body.
• In contrast to this, a high level of LDL causes clogged arteries, and low HDL induces cardiovascular complications.
• The type of cholesterol matters, not the number of fatty things you eat. So, it’s imperative to ensure that you are consuming healthy fats.
