1 Saturated Fats & Trans fats tip on Thu Apr 15, 2010 4:55 pm


Nutrition Tip of the Day

For the healthiest heart keep the overall fat content of your daily as low as possible. The best fat choices are the monounsaturated fats found in nuts, olive oil, and avocados. Limit the saturated fats in red mets, cheeses, and butter. Avoid any foods with trans fats - any containing partially hydrogenated oil in the ingredient listing.

Me and my sister were talking about this, the other day. It is amazing how when you buy things you don't really look at the ingredients. Well I don't generally but I am getting better at it. She pointed out the hydrogenated fats in some biscuits that I was eating and totally put me off them.

lol... yeah, even several skin care products have hydrogenated fats in them too instead of the pure thing. This was one of the negative with makari and I was wondering if this is one of the reasons as of why many get clogged pores from the amounts that makari uses.

My Current Skin Lightening Regimen Is:
Neutrogena Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub (cleanser)
Tretinoin/Retin-A 0.05% (exfoliant)
All Day Chemist Hq 4% (lightener)
RX Suncare: Sport Sunblock SPF 50 (sunblock)

This also applies for people who have a higher metabolism and are thin as well as lower metabolism and don't burn fat as easily. Even our bodies change over the years and metabolism slows, so we have to strive to practice good habits now to prevent as much as we can of having more health problems later on.

I eat more bread than rice to reduce weight. I don't eat bread without cheese or butter. This maybe the reason why I lose weight very slowly. Because of what you inform me, I think I will only use peanut butter next time. Thanks very much.

Limit foods like cakes, biscuits, pastries and savoury snacks. These foods are termed ‘discretionary foods’ and are foods that should be limited sometimes and in small amounts. Cakes, pastries, biscuits, pizza, hamburgers and hot chips are one of the main sources of saturated fat in our diets.
Swap full fat dairy foods for reduced, low or no fat dairy foods for all family members more than two years old. You will remove 4 kg of saturated fat from your diet in a year if you do this with 1 cup of milk, two slices of cheese and a small tub of yoghurt a day. You can remove even more by choosing no fat foods.
Swap butter for a margarine spread made from canola, sunflower, olive or dairy blends. Just doing this with your morning toast and sandwiches at lunch will remove 2.85 kg of saturated fat from your diet in one year.
Cut the fat. Trim all visible fat from meat, remove skin from chicken and try to avoid processed meat (e.g. sausages and salami). Look for products that have the Heart Foundation Tick.
Eat two to three serves of oily fish a week. A serve of fish is 150 g, which is about the size of your whole hand. Including fish two to three times a week instead of meat or chicken is a simple way to reduce saturated fat in the diet while getting the added benefits of omega-3. Add fish oil capsules and omega-3 enriched foods and drinks to your diet if you’re not eating enough oily fish.

Saturated fatty acids have all the hydrogen the carbon atoms can hold. Saturated fats are usually solid at room temperature, and they're more stable — that is, they don't combine readily with oxygen. Saturated fats and trans fats are the main dietary factors in raising blood cholesterol. The main sources of saturated fat in the typical American diet are foods from animals and some plants.

What are trans fats?
Trans fats are unsaturated, but they can raise total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol and lower HDL ("good") cholesterol. Trans fats result from adding hydrogen to vegetable oils used in commercial baked goods and for cooking in most restaurants and fast-food chains.
