Dripping in Fat

Posted Nov 01 2009 12:00am
I won't deny that I passed a fast food restaurant the other day and remembered a delicious commercial I had seen on television. My mouth watered and my heart raced with excitement. I love food and the thought of this delicious meal made me lose my self control! Then I had to slap myself into reality. See what they didn't tell me in the commercial but obviously I already knew was the fact that most burger meals can equate to one days worth of your caloric intake. I would be dripping and dipping into FAT!

There are good fats and bad fats. Lets talk about them. Good fats are unsaturated fats. They are divided. You have monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. They are both beneficial in moderation on cholesterol levels. Monounsaturated fats lower your bad cholesterol. Polyunsaturated fats also help lower bad cholesterol. However, you will find that monounsaturated fats may be better because some polyunsaturated fats have been said to be a little less stable. You bad fats are simply put saturated fats!! Stay away from them. They are some of the causes for metabolic syndrome which is a series of variables that leads to heart disease.

Good fats to eat avocado, olive oil, nuts and seeds. Bad fats that you should not eat coconut oil, or packaged foods with trans fat. Eating can be an eclectic buffet of delights. But knowing what kind of foods to eat is key. It's kind of like a car. You are only allowed to put a certain type of gasoline. All cars run on gasoline but your car runs more effective on that certain type "87".
Your body is the same. You will run on any food but you wont run as effectively on just any food.

Take it from my experience read the labels, educate yourself and don't be enchanted by those delightful commercials that make your stomach growl. Jump up and turn that channel and keep driving past those fast food places.
