3 Tips for Choosing Good Fat for Body Health
Many people assume that fat is always bad for our bodies. Apparently, that assumption is not always true.
This was stated by the President of the World Anti-Aging Dr. Deby Vinski MScAA Ph.D. Deby said, that the body also needs saturated fat, unsaturated fat and certain essential fats, which must be obtained through the food we consume.
According to him, saturated fat is usually found in meat and processed dairy products, such as butter, margarine, lard, cream, and cheese. These foods are recommended not to be consumed too often, because they contain trans fats (fats that cause obesity and coronary heart disease) and hydrogenated fats, both of which are harmful to health.
While unsaturated fats, said Dr. Deby, are usually liquid and are found in olive oil, fish oil, nuts, and avocados. These foods contain essential fats that cannot be produced by the body, but must be supplied through your food.
While essential fats, are part of the lipid wall that surrounds every cell in the body. It is needed for the metabolic processes of hormones, protecting our organs, including the outer skin, protecting bones and muscles from injury, and protecting nerves in the brain. Essential fat also helps the absorption of nutrients contained in vitamins A, D, E and K.
So from now on, choose foods that contain hormones and good fats, so that you will look healthier, younger, and have the opportunity to live longer.
Here are tips on choosing fats that are good for your body’s health.
1. Use olive oil as a substitute for butter or other cooking oils. Olive oil, avocados, and nuts can reduce unsaturated fat.
2. Don’t fry your food with oil that is too hot. In hot oil, there is trans fat that is harmful to your health.
3. Eat sea fish or wild fish that are not bred. Because livestock fish contains many pollutants and sometimes contains pesticides to avoid parasites and antibiotics. Therefore, it is better to consume fresh fish that are directly hooked from the sea.
