Nutrition Quiz Fats
It’s all about image
Of all the food nutrients, fats are probably the most misunderstood. This is probably because the very term “fat” has gotten a negative connotation, especially when it refers to that bulk we don’t like to see on our bellies and thighs. Perhaps if we called them by their technical term, “lipids,” it would help, but whatever you call them, the more I talk to people, the more I realize how little the average person knows about this much-maligned nutrient.

Fats can be part of a healthy diet.
Fats definitely need an image makeover, since they are an important part of a healthy diet. Here are some things you can do to make fats part of a healthy diet:
- Eat more plant foods.
- Cook with olive oil.
- Choose leaner meats in smaller portions and include fish.
- Watch out for those trans-fats and tropical oils.
- Pick lower fat versions of dairy products (unless the fat has been replaced with sugar or chemicals).
- Be aware of the invisible fats in your diet.
You can be healthy eating fats, if you choose the right kind!
