Live Healthy Life
If I am teenager and want to live healthy life style should I eat saturated fat or not as study show it is healthy?
Reduce saturated fat: Today's general medical advice is to eat more unsaturated fat from nuts, vegetable oils, and fish, and less saturated fat from red meat, organ meat and whole dairy. But for whole dairy we can substitute low fat dairy (1% milk, skim cheese, yoghurt, egg white omelets); and for animal fat we can substitute white meat (chicken without skin) and some lean red meat (try bison burgers). ...Read more

Hormones play a vital role in that too. May get better over time. ...Read more
