There are numerous misconceptions about a diet of fats and oils. Are fats and oils good for us? Which ones should we avoid? We will attempt to dispel the popular myths about fats and oils.
There are 3 different types of fat: saturated, mono-unsaturated, and poly-unsaturated. The key differences between them rests in there chemical composition. Saturated fats are used for body structure and stability, while poly-unsaturated fats are used for functioning organs, such as the eyes and heart. Fats come from nuts, seeds, olives, avocados, dark greens, coconuts, seaweed, legumes, butter, and flaxseed.
Saturated fats are easy to digest and are absorbed quickly. All cooking should be done using saturated fats and coconut oil. Nutritional studies indicate saturated fats and coconut oil are good for your health. Coconut oil contains 92% saturated fat. You should not cook with olive oil because it may turn rancid during the cooking process, which might create free radicals in your body. Saturated fats help fight disease by killing parasites, murdering viruses, and destroying bacteria.
Poly-Unsaturated fats assist you in the functioning of your brain, heart, and eyes. Omega 3 (fish, flax, walnuts, cereal grasses) and Omega 6 (cereals, whole-grain breads, eggs and poultry) fats are excellent examples of poly unsaturated fats. Here are some facts:
Fats are mandatory for good health 55% of your heart’s energy comes from fat. The brain can’t think properly without fat. Fats are a key building block for hormones. Fat is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails. Fat is known for keeping your moods stable. Fat is critical to a healthy digestive process.
The important myth you should remember is that fat doesn’t make you fat. Eating highly processed, white flour, or white sugar foods will definitely put on those unwanted pounds.
Oils when processed properly will remain cloudy and textured. When oils are manufactured for shelf life, they are damaged and become transfats. These fats are toxic and can produce free radicals. Some adverse effects of consuming transfats are: lowering good cholesterol, raising bad cholesterol, which lowers male testosterone, and decreases your red blood cell response to insulin, creating an undesirable effect on diabetes.
