Gaining health and losing fat is something that many people attempt every day. Fats play a huge role in both health and weight. In this the-skinny-of-it blog, we talk about fats, after all, they are not all the same.

The Three Types of Fats

There are three main types of fats. Those are monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, and saturated fats. Our body needs some fat and knowing which fats are good and which are not helps you gain heart health and drop stored fat.

1)  Monounsaturated fats are good for you in limited portions. These are fats that help to control cholesterol levels by lowering bad cholesterol and boosting good cholesterol. That means better heart health with cleaner veins and arteries, better blood flow and more oxygen to your cells. Simply cooking with olive oil helps provide your body with monounsaturated fats.

2)  Polyunsaturated fats are also good for you but in limited doses. These fats help to regulate cholesterol too. These are plant-based oils found in nuts, seeds, and fish such as salmon and tuna.

3)  Saturated fats are not so good for you. These are oils that are often cloudy. Shortening, butter, and lard are examples of saturated fats. Animal fats such as from bacon is usually a saturated fat.

Gaining health and losing fat is not just about cutting out saturated fat. It is also about monitoring portion control and calorie intake.
