Sports protein drink: Any concern with saturated fat 1.5 mg; trans fat 0 mg; polyunsaturated fat 1gm; monounsaturated fat 4.5 mg. in 11 oz. drink.(?)

Sports protein drink: Any concern with saturated fat 1.5 mg; trans fat 0 mg; polyunsaturated fat 1gm; monounsaturated fat 4.5 mg. in 11 oz. drink.(?)

7 grams of fat: is quite a bit for a protein shake of 11 ounces. There begin is more monounsaturated fat (4.5) than saturated fat (1.5) is good. It is great that you are reading food labels. Keep looking around, you should be able to find a protein shake which contains less fat and no saturated fat. See photo of protein shake mix which contains 0 g fat and less than 1 g of sugar. ...Read more

Difficult: Official guidance is 20-35% of calories from fat and each 1g fat is 9 calories so probably around 55-95g fat per day. https://medlineplus.gov/ency/patientinstructions/000747.htm Main fat to reduce is saturated fat.

If a food has more unsaturated fats than saturated and trans fats, does the unsaturated cancel out the effects of the saturated and trans?

If a food has more unsaturated fats than saturated and trans fats, does the unsaturated cancel out the effects of the saturated and trans?

NO!!!: First of all, there is good reason to question whether saturated fats are actually unhealthy- see http://www.Bmj.Com/content/347/bmj.F6340 however, trans fats are among the most toxic foods one can eat and a major cause of heart disease- see http://bit.Ly/1era8lt ; http://bit.Ly/13o0nkq no amount of healthy fats can "cancel out" the incredible toxicity caused by trans fats. ...Read more

Bun=21
Creatinine=1.1
Protein intake=120gms 50gms through whey and 15 gms bcca during intraworkout.do Moderately Intense exercise 5to6 days for 1 hr.

Water is key: Both numbers are essentially ok. With that much protein, you really need to make sure you stay well hydrated. With intense exercise there are muscle breakdown products that can potentially be harmful if they cause blockages in your kidneys. Proper hydration will help prevent this from occurring and keep your performance level high. ...Read more

If someone consumes zero grams of saturated fat, are they still at risk for arterial plaque? What about 8 grams of saturated fat per day?

If someone consumes zero grams of saturated fat, are they still at risk for arterial plaque? What about 8 grams of saturated fat per day?

Yes;saturated fat OK: For decades doctors believed saturated fat was a major risk factor for heart disease. Recent research shows it is not a significant factor! see http://bit.Ly/1bpcmj4 ; http://bit.Ly/1jenftl ; http://nyti.Ms/1hlus84 the real cause of heart disease is inflammation; reducing sugars ; simple carbs will reduce risk much more than avoiding fats! see http://bit.Ly/1era8lt ; http://bit.Ly/13o0nkq. ...Read more

If saturated and trans fats do not add up to total fats, what are the remaining fats?

If saturated and trans fats do not add up to total fats, what are the remaining fats?

Unsaturated fats: The remaining fats are unsaturated fats. Trans fats are very toxic and should be avoided as much as possible. Most saturated fats are unhealthy, though smaller saturated fats like lauric acid in coconut oil are not unhealthy. Other fats are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are relatively healthy but can become less healthy when heated. ...Read more

Are there benefits from monounsaturated fat? I'm eating macadamia nuts, and it has 20g mono & 3.5g saturated fat (24g total fat) per serving.

Are there benefits from monounsaturated fat? I'm eating macadamia nuts, and it has 20g mono & 3.5g saturated fat (24g total fat) per serving.

Good fat...: Yes...It is a better type of fat...We need fat in our diet, but unfortunately much of what we get is saturated fat--meaning from animal products. Often from nuts/plants, we get monosurated fat, a good thing. This fat is not as dangerous--not causing much damage to your blood vessels etc...So, monosaturated fat is a better fat to get. Good luck..Stay healthy. ...Read more

My 16 months son has ethyl malonic aciduria, which kind of fats that harm his health (saturated or monoun saturated fat) ?

My 16 months son has ethyl malonic aciduria, which kind of fats that harm his health (saturated or monoun saturated fat) ?

His doctor can help: With a young child who has a metabolic disorder, the clinical genetics doctor and the pediatrician can help with advice on dietary restrictions. The cause of ethylmalonic aciduria may be a mutation that causes abnormal handling of certain Amino Acids (which come from digesting dietary protein), which means the type of fats in the diet shouldn't matter much. ...Read more

Kinda sorta, but ...: Standard or typical B complex doses probably won't make a dent in high triglycerides or low HDL cholesterol. However, high dose vitamin B3 aka niacin has been proven to lower triglycerides & raise low HDL but is often intolerable due to flushing (can be mitigated by aspirin). But there's no proof that niacin prevents heart attacks & strokes to same degree as statins. No such thing as free lunc ...Read more
