Fats do not always make you gain weight. But what are healty fats? Here is some advice as to which fats are healthy and what types of food to avoid:
The types of fat are seperated into saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. The unsaturated ones are healthy, sate you for longer, and are essential in a lot of important processes in your body. The monounsaturated fatty acids, which help you in the uptake of fat-soluable vitamins, are found in foods such as avocados, olive oil, peanut butter, etc. Here is our organic peanut butter: https://www.foodspring.de/bio-erdnussbutter.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as Omega 3, are essential for your heart-, brain- and eye function and can be found in e.g walnuts, fatty salt-water fisch and chia seeds. Here are our Omega 3 capsules: https://www.foodspring.de/omega-3-kapseln.
The saturated fatty acids should make up less than 10% of your daily calorie intake, since they are suspected in raising your LDL-cholesterol levels, which is unhealthy. They are found primarily in animal products, e.g fatty meats, sausages, whole milk products, cream and butter. These products should be consumed in moderation, replaced through healthier alternatives or avoided. The exception is coconut oil, which is a saturated fat, but turns into energy instead of fat stores and keeps you full. Here is our organic coconut oil: https://www.foodspring.de/bio-kokosoel.
