The answer is Yes and NO! It really depends on the type of fats that you are talking about, and if you are looking at losing weight â€“ you really NEED to know the differences. Now I am not claiming to be a doctor, nutritionist, or anything but an ordinary person that believes in doing research to learn the real truths behind all the hype out there. One of the areas of hype out there is that Fats are bad for you….
Now not all fats are good for you â€“ Hydrogenated fats are the ones that you need to avoid. First question to answer is â€“ what are hydrogenated fats? Hydrogenation is the process in which fats are chemically changed to be more shelf stable. Now that these fats are changed, the body does not recognize them and treats them like toxins, and many studies that I have read say that these may contribute to cancer, diabetes and obesity. The problem with this is that these hydrogenated fats are in a lot of products that are in many of the foods that we eat every day â€“ such as crackers, chips, cookies, cereal bars, microwave popcorn, and many fat free snacks â€“ check out the labels in your pantry….
Fats can be good for you and in fact are needed to maintain a healthy body! In fact, fatty acids are needed by your brain, immune system, and healthy digestion system. Omega 3 fats have been proven essential to human’s health yet cannot be produced by the body, so it is necessary to have these within your diet. Having a diet that is lacking of these fatty acids contribute to fatigue, poor memory, dry skin, mood swings, depression and poor circulation. So you must watch out for those diets that eliminate these types of fats from your diet, as it can do more harm than good.
So do Fats really make you Fat? If they are the natural unprocessed fats that your body graves â€“ NO!
And in fact, can help in you losing fat because they promote a more healthy digestion system and promote a better immune system. But stay away from those processed fats, even those in those foods promoted as being healthy, as they can be more harmful to your body and contribute to weight gain.
When it comes to our bodies â€“ all my research shows â€“ nature knows best, and the less processed the better when it comes to our foods. Want to lose weight â€“ don’t concentrate as much on the levels of fat as much as the type of fats that are in the food!
