Our nation is in an epidemic with regards to our health. I’m really not much of a sugar-coater so I’ll tell you the things they don’t. Before I begin I have to pick an area because there’s way too much to put in one post… After pondering I’ve got it. Saturated fat, have you heard of it? I’m sure many of you have. But do you know why it is bad for you?
Hopefully by now you see the problem with SF. If you care about yourself and want to do something about consuming unnecessary amounts of SF here are some tips. First, only consume a maximum of seven grams per day of saturated fat in your diet. Second, stay away from foods that are high in saturated fat. Those types of foods are heavy meats, such as beef, lamb, pork, poultry with skin, and beef fat. The other type is dairy products like cream, butter, cheese, whole, and 2 percent milk. In addition, read food labels for plant foods such as palm oil, palm kernel oil, and coconut oil.
I earlier said that SF is a silent killer. The reason I said that is because there’s no limit to the amount of clogging SF can do to your arteries, and you general don’t show many symptoms other than being fatigued from strenuous active. But people who are less active or out of shape can show those same types of fatigued symptoms. In addition, the more SF you consume in high amounts will just continue to clog and clog your arteries. To get an example, imagine a room, and then someone fills the rooms with balloons slowly, okay not a problem. But soon enough this person likes the way the balloons look and fills the room with more, and more, and more sooner or later the balloons are all over and the person can no longer move around the room. That is similar to the clogging in your arteries. They fill and fill and fill to the point where blood has to find the cracks and crevices just to get through, which makes it harder to travel through.
Many people say, “The hell with it I’m going to eat whatever I want”, which is fine on occasion. If you suffer from eating foods high in SF and don’t think you will suffer you’re wrong. And to be honest why do you want to put your body through that? Slow and painful deaths can’t feel good.
To get an idea of how much saturated fat you consume daily check your food labels. Also let me know if this has helped you understand SF better.
