The main charge against saturated fat (the kind found in butter, cream, red meat, coconut and chocolate) is that diets high in saturated fat have been linked with increased risk of heart disease. But while eating more saturated fat may raise your LDL (aka “bad”) cholesterol numbers, it also tends to increase the size of those LDL cholesterol particles. Numerous studies have shown that saturated fat intake increases heart disease risk factors, including LDL (bad) cholesterol and apolipoprotein B (apoB).

LDL transports cholesterol in. We now know that not all saturated fats behave the same in the body. Full-fat dairy and dark chocolate are full of sat fats but don’t raise the risk for cardiovascular disease. It helps control.

Saturated Fats Are Not Bad For You In the past, saturated fats were a taboo as it helps in abetting the development of LDL Cholesterol. This misconception does not hold water anymore!! It is only the small LDL particles that are dangerous. What if I would tell you that maybe we got it all wrong when it comes to saturated fat and.

For decades, health experts have urged us to step away from the butter, cheese and meat.The saturated fat in these foods, they warned, would clog our arteries and raise our risk for heart disease and stroke.In fact, the American Heart Association now advises limiting saturated fat intake to no more than five to six percent of total calories, meaning if you top your sandwich with two slices of. Saturated means the fat is solid at room temperature. They are stable and “tougher” when exposed to high heat. Inaccurate and manipulated research more than a half-century ago created a stubborn dogma that has lasted for decades and which links saturated fat and cholesterol with heart disease.

March 20, 2014 Saturated fats have long been called ”bad fats” for their effect on the heart. But a new analysis calls into question whether they’re really that bad after all. The finding. The American Heart Association recommends limiting saturated fats – which are found in butter, cheese, red meat and other animal-based foods.

Decades of sound science has proven it can raise your “bad” cholesterol and put you at higher risk for heart disease. The more important thing to remember is the overall dietary picture. When putting together a Sports Nutrition plan for yourself, make sure you understand the dangers of Bad Fats.

  • I have one doubt.Provided hydrogenation can also take place inside the body, then what if unsaturated fats get hydrogenated to saturated fats? Wouldnt it lead to more “bad fats getting stored ” in our tummy? Please explain

  • For me it’s very harmful because it raises Lp-PLA2 levels and increases calcium scores. Coconut oil in particular is one of the worst saturated fats.

  • I’m very troubled that our “science” on diet took such a hard turn in the wrong direction, Eat a Low Fat/High Carb Diet!!! Then when you get Type 2 Diabetes, just take this medicine that will never cure you, but will make you worse. Then 6 months ago I discovered Intermittent Fasting and the Low Carb/High Fat Diet, my health improved, and I lost a lot of excess weight (almost 60 pounds so far). All I can say is that I’m VERY thankful for all the Doctors that continue to expose the flaws in the High Carb/Low Fat Diet and how Processed Food is like eating poison. Their videos taught me the right way to eat.

  • Where I come from old people still say that they are walking and doing work in because they used to consume a lot of ghee ( clarified butter) so it’s vary evident that saturated fats are not dangerous..

  • Avoid seed oils like canola, corn and soy oils.
    Eat olive oil, coconut oil, ghee or butter in moderation and don’t be afraid of their saturated fat. (Their role in heart disease has been disproven)
    And try to get some omega 3’s in your diet from sources like Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines, as well as flax seeds and walnuts.

  • Scumbags at the beginning portraying lies and callously joke about an extremely threatening infliction to food. Thousands of times now, and never intending to eat a single percent of saturated fat again, my face, stomach, and brain all end up catastrophically effected after any intake amount. Saturated fat always caused severe psychiatric issues, unwanted excess weight gain, and an inability to follow through with any normalized productive activity. There is a very specific horrible effect from it, and I hope someday people, especially anyone struggling with mental or physical health, will realize what truly transpires after eating saturated fat. Cognitive functioning ends up destroyed, and will enter a realm of thinking entirely differentiated from what is existent if not eating it. You have to look good to feel good. Saturated fat makes you look like shit and feel as such( your brain is deliberately under attack after consumption)
