The Fuss About Fat
There are several forms of fat, some being healthier than others:
Trans fat, or hydrogenated fat, as well as saturated fat, can contribute to high cholesterol. Trans fats, which are found in margarine and shortening, are formed when liquid oil is made solid at room temperature.
Try to replace these unhealthy fats with moderate amounts of monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats such as olive, canola, flaxseed, sesame and peanut oil.
