Fat is essential for health but there are good fats and bad fats and it is important to know the difference. All fats are higher in calories compared with carbohydrates and proteins so it makes sense to moderate your intake and only consume what you need. Stay within your daily calorie allowance – Know Your Fats.
Know your Fats
Saturated fats are the “bad fats”. They are mainly found in meats, dairy products, fried foods, biscuits, cakes and pastries.
Polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated fats are the good fats. Oily fish like salmon, mackerel and herring are great sources of polyunsaturated fat, as are walnuts, brazil nuts, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and polyunsaturated-fat spreads.
Rapeseed oil is rich in mono-unsaturated fats, which is why KSG insist on cooking your food with it. Unsalted peanuts, almonds, cashew nuts, brazil nuts and polyunsaturated-fat spreads are easy ways to get good fats into your body.
