How can we distinguish between recommended fats and fats which are not advisable?
Fats are metabolized differently depending on the nature of their fatty acids. - Saturated fats (meat, butter, milk products…) can be stored easily since they do not suffer any metabolic changes. - Monounsaturated fats (olive oil, goose fat, avocado) have the advantage that they reduce glycemia and are not easily stored by our bodies since they first have to be transformed. - Polyunsaturated fats (fish Omega 3) are not likely to get stored. What’s more, the energy needed to metabolize unsaturated fats is greater than the calories they contain.
