Positive impacts of fatty food items
Fatty foods were not blamed a decade back. People used to do so much of physical work then. A WHO report says that the calories intake should be equal to the calorie expended. Due to urbanization and transportation facilities, we do not have to do so much of physical work to burn fats. We are moving towards an era where the technological advancement would not let us to move. Fat is not bad but to keep on with this modern lifestyle, it is important to intake what you can burn.
Dr Sudha Menon, consultant, internal medicine, Fortis Hospital, Bengaluru told Google Weblight, “Fat is not as bad as villain as it is made out to be. Just as fat can cause weight gain, it can also be beneficial for weight loss and maintenance. Choosing fats wisely is more important. It helps in insulation of our body, maintaining our core temperature, keeping our skin soft and our joints lubricated. It helps in the absorption of vitamin A, D, E and K. Fats helps our body to absorb nutrients and produce important hormones too.”
Talking about cholesterol, it is produced by human body in addition to being taken from food. If you are taking a high cholesterol diet which means you are taking saturated fats, they are not good in long run. Burn them after you consume them to stay healthy. Keep in mind that ghee and butter consumed in their natural form are healthier than when they are heated and used for seasoning. Take care of such small things and fats would not do any harm to your body.
