Fat Finale

We hope you have learned a bit about what kind of fats are good and bad for you. If you can't remember anything else, stick with this rule of thumb: If its liquid or soft at room temperature its good fat choice. If it is solid it's bad fat choice. So things such as cheese, butters/margarines and animal fats are bad for you. While oils derived from nuts, fruits and vegetables are good for you. Obviously this isn't a fool proof rule and there is always exceptions to it, but use it as a general guide and you shouldn't go too far wrong.

The "skinny" of Good Fats

Dietary fat is a macronutrient that provides your body energy. It is essential to your health because it supports many of your body's functions. For instance, some vitamins must have fat to dissolve and nourish you. The best fats for your body are monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and omega-3 fatty acids. Foods made up mostly of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature, such as olive oil, safflower oil, peanut oil and corn oil. Fish high in omega-3 fatty acids include salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel, sardines and herring. Plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids include flaxseed (ground), oils (canola, flaxseed, soybean), and nuts and other seeds (walnuts, butternuts and sunflower). -Mayoclinic.org
