National Healthy Fats Day
One of the most common themes in health-care was “Fat is Bad!” which led people to eat more carbs (including sugar) than they used to. What is the fallout of this decision? The obesity rates continue to rise and the notion that all fat is bad continues to spread. National Healthy Fats Day reminds everyone that all things must be in moderation. This includes fats in our diets.
People have tried to figure out what is healthy and what isn‚Äôt throughout history. This is made worse by the confusion and mixed information that healthcare professionals provide. Even worse, the advice can be confusing for those who are claiming to know the secrets of miracle diets and other’super-foods’. There are both healthy and unhealthy fats. Fat is an essential part of our bodies and brains.
Common wisdom on fats said that trans fats and saturated fats are unhealthy. However, the jury is still out on this. It is not the type of fat that is the problem, but the amount. This is becoming more apparent. It is well-known that our bodies require certain amounts of unsaturated fats for health. Their presence can lower our risk of developing heart disease.
