All The Truth About Fat

Jul 26, 2008
Everyone talks about fat nowadays. It seems that it become the focus of most people these days. When we are still small children, our parents and teachers will tell us that fat is not good for us.

In fact, you should not only focus on fat. This is especially true if you are trying to lose weight. You should also think about calorie if you are trying to lose a few pounds. You will need to consider both calorie and fat if you want to succeed in your weight loss plan.

The first thing you need to make sure is that you should not eat too much junk food. I bet most people will know this. This is junk food is usually loaded with fat. And it will not be good for our weight loss plan. In fact, it may even ruin your plan if you eat too much junk food. However, as discussed, you do not only consider the fat content. You also need to think about your weight loss plan in terms of calories. There will be a lot of sugar from candy. If you eat too many candies, it will provide you more calorie than you need. And this will eventually make you gain weight. From here you should understand why you should also consider the calorie intake apart from the fat intake. You will gain weight if you only think about fat without considering calorie.

As a matter of fact, we get the energy for our daily activities mainly from carbs. You will eat things such as bread, pasta and rice everyday in order to get the carbs. However, one thing you should be careful is that excessive carbs in our body will be stored as fat in our body. As a result, eating too much bread may not be a good idea.

Let us get back to the notion of fact. We should not take too much saturated fat. In most cases food such as potato chips and fries will be rich in saturated fat. As you may probably know, too much of this fat will probably cause heart attacks. This can in fact pose real health problem to us.

You should use as little oil as possible. When you really need to use it, you should consider using oil like olive oil because this kind of oil is low in saturated fat. This will certainly be a lot healthier for you.
