Good Video About Good and Bad Fats
Below is a video that is very educational concerning good and bad fats. Dr. Sarah Hallberg gets it absolutely right in defining what fats are good and why they are good and why some fats are bad.
While listening to Dr. Sarah talk, the following explanations may be helpful:
Saturated fat is solid in the refrigerator and semi-solid at room temperature. They include butter, coconut oil, lard (pork fat), tallow (beef fat).
Monounsaturated oils are semi-solid in the refrigerator and liquid at room temperature. These include olive oil, peanut oil and avocado oil.
Polyunsaturated fats are liquid at all temperatures. These include corn oil, sesame oil and many more, etc. Many of these fats are very processed with various chemicals that wreak havoc in the human body.
When Dr. Sarah refers to oxidation in bad fats, think oxidation = damage. And damaged fats create damage in our bodies.
