How can I tell how much saturated fats are in the foods I eat?

How can I tell how much saturated fats are in the foods I eat?

Food label: I would recommend reading food labels on a regular basis. They will tell you how much fat, including saturated fat, is in the foods you are eating. Pay attention to serving size though so you are not fooled into believing your food is lower in fat than it really is. Searching the web for common foods you eat can help give you a general guideline as well. ...Read more

The question of a low-fat vs. low carb diet is complex but one should choose healthy fats & healthy carbs. See http://tinyurl.com/nq4sx63 ...Read more

Do mono & polyunsat fat really lower ldl? Or is it if you use them in place of equal amounts of saturated fat LDL will go down from not eating bad fat

Do mono & polyunsat fat really lower ldl? Or is it if you use them in place of equal amounts of saturated fat LDL will go down from not eating bad fat

Stick with monos!: Saturated and poly-unsaturated fats are to be avoided if you can substitute everything with monos. Of course, this is impossible, but i've got a better one for you.

That will direct you to aggressive diet or medical therapy. ...Read more

As body sex hormone made from cholesterol and cholesterol made from saturated fat how is that healthy when you cut out saturated fat?

Medicine Myths: I am not sure what you are really asking given the question, but our bodies do not recognize 'cholesterol' in the diet. Foods are broken into fats, sugars and proteins in the stomach and small intestines and then presented to the liver as storage or building blocks for the variety of processes the liver manages. Your liver knows what to do with the fats to make what it needs. ...Read more

If i eat no carbs in a week and eat more fats like oil and fried food i will lose weight?

If i eat no carbs in a week and eat more fats like oil and fried food i will lose weight?

Fried food not wise!: Fried food is one of the least healthy things we can eat & is certainly not a good strategy for losing weight! eating "no carbs" is extreme. Not all carbs are bad- avoiding starches- sugar, grains, potatoes & sweeter fruits will help you lose weight, but do not avoid most vegetables. You need more than a week to lose much.See www.Nytimes.Com/2012/07/01/opinion/sunday/what-really-makes-us-fat.Html. ...Read more
