<b>Monounsaturated fat </b><br><br>This is the healthiest type of fat and is found in peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, olive oil and pumpkin seeds. Experts recommend including monosaturated fats in the diet as they provide essential acids which nourish many of the body's functions and contain Vitamin E which is an excellent anti-oxidant.

Monounsaturated fat

This is the healthiest type of fat and is found in peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, olive oil and pumpkin seeds. Experts recommend including monosaturated fats in the diet as they provide essential acids which nourish many of the body's functions and contain Vitamin E which is an excellent anti-oxidant. Studies show that eating foods rich in these fats improves cholesterol and insulin levels

<b>Polyunsaturated fat </b><br><br>This fat is found mostly in plant-based foods and oils including sunflower oil, safflower oil, corn oil, flax oil, sesame seed oil, pumpkin seed oil and canola oil. One type of polyunsaturated fat, omega-3 fatty acids, are especially beneficial for the heart. Found in fatty fish, omega-3 has been found to decrease the risk of coronary artery disease and lower blood pressure levels

<b>THE BAD Saturated fats </b><br><br><br>Saturated fats are the "solid fats"in your diet and come mainly from animal products. They are found in butter, cheese, full cream milk, meat, sausages, bacon as well as coconut and palm oils. These fats raise total blood cholesterol levels and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels, increasing one's risk of heart disease. Studies have also blamed it for increasing risk of type 2 diabetes

<b>THE UGLY Trans fats </b><br><br><br>Unlike other fats, these are largely man-made. They are produced by a chemical process called partial hydrogenation. Liquid vegetable oil is bombarded with hydrogen atoms and converted into a solid fat which is ideal for the food industry because of its high melting point, its creamy, smooth texture and its reusability in deepfrying. It also extends the shelf life of food. If you see the words hydrogenated, partially hydrogenated or shortening on the food label, it means the product contains this unhealthy ingredient
