Fatty Frights

Don’t worry, fats aren’t actually as frightening as they may initially seem. Saturated fats, which are usually solid at room temperature are the only ones that we really need to worry too much about. But regardless of the saturation, it is important to limit fats since they are often in other foods that we consume on an everyday basis. Fats are good because they are used as a long-term energy source.

DO…

  • eat only unsaturated fats
  • limit fat intake
