What are the healthiest fats?
If we are controlling, it is best to limit carbohydrates and say yes to proteins and fats, but not all. Today we tell you which ones are good and which ones are not
The low - calorie diets are increasingly vilified, and it is normal: if you do not give the body the energy needed at the end you become slim a lot but end up gaining weight quickly. Not to mention the anxiety and various health problems that you may not eat the necessary calories, even if you are on a diet
The best thing to lose weight is to control the type of food we eat and not so much the calories they have. If we want to lose weight, and quickly, his thing is to limit carbohydrates as much as possible (especially simple ones, such as bread, pasta, rice, sweets ...) and eat many foods rich in protein and fat.
But beware, not all fats are good for losing weight and being healthy. And it is important that we differentiate them.
Fats are good for weight loss and for your health, but not all
When it comes to losing weight, fats have a very bad reputation, but if we choose the correct ones we will lose weight for sure and we will also be much healthier.
What are healthy fats? The monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. This type of fat is present in many foods and oils, and consuming it, according to research, can improve blood cholesterol level and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The polyunsaturated fats are called "essential fats" because the body cannot produce and need to get them from food. Like monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fat can lower your risk of heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels
A certain type of this fat, omega-3 fatty acids, has been shown to be particularly beneficial for the heart.
Foods with good fats
Once we have determined what fat is good, we go to the list of foods that contain it:
· Nuts, especially almonds, cashews, peanuts, and walnuts.
· Olive oil.
· Fatty fish: salmon, herring, sardines, trout.
· Chia and flax seeds.
Bad and regular fats
The bad fats are saturated and trans fats, which in addition to making us fat are terrible for our health. Some foods that contain these bad fats are butter, margarine, tallow (beef, beef, etc.) and pork fat.
Regular fats are saturated fats, which should be avoided and consumed in moderation, as they can increase blood cholesterol levels and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
Traditionally, doctors have linked a higher intake of saturated fat with an increased risk of heart disease. However, some experts, such as those at Harvard University, claim that they are not so bad. Still, they are not good.
Most saturated fats are animal fats. They are found in high-fat meats and in dairy products, such as fatty cuts of pork, beef and lamb, some chicken meats, fatty dairy products (whole milk, cheese, ice cream ...), coconut and palm oil and lard, among others.
Oral bacteria also thrive inside your cheeks and on your tongue, palate, tonsils, and gums. Your mouth is a great habitat for unicellular microorganisms. It’s constantly moist, has a fairly neutral pH, and a balmy temperature. But despite this perfect environment, not all the germs in your mouth stay put.
