Scientists agree that a diet high in saturated fats raises the bad cholesterol in the blood which has the Impact of increasing the risk of heart disease
Saturated fats is found mainly in animal products like fatty meat, (beef, rago meat aka salah meat, pork) organ meat( tripe aka saki, cow intestine aka roundabout), fat under the skin of these animals ( check out the fat when you cook any part of cow head or legs).
So if you want to clean up your diet to improve your health, eliminate these from your plate or at least eat sparingly. This will not only aid your weightloss but it will significantly cut your risk of heart disease in the long run. In the category of red meat I eat only goat meat.
The good fats (let’s leave the big names they are called) are found in most nuts and seeds groundnut, sunflower seeds, canola seeds etc. This where we get our cooking oil. For the purpose of choosing healthily we need to know the process of extraction and the impact on the finished product plus the shelf life.

NB…. How do I know all this and am still fat? #wink# I lost a lot of weight 2011/2012 on diet and exercises but gained a large chunk back due to pregnancy( was too tired to cook healthy stuff then so was eating ready meals).
My quest now is to loose the weight and keep it off.
