Ask the nutritionist

Q: I am confused about fats? Are they good for me?\

A: Choose healthy fats, limit saturated fat, and avoid trans fat. The total amount of fat you eat, whether high or low isn't linked with disease for all people. What really matters is the type of fat you eat. The "good" fats—monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats will help lower disease risk. The key is to eat a healthy diet and to replace good fats for bad fats. Always avoid trans fats also called partially hydrogenated fat. These fats contribute to disease.
