|Eat Fats to Burn Fat [Infographic}|
Some fats, like transfats, are detrimental to health, promote weight gain, impede fat loss and contribute to a whole host of chronic diseases like diabetes, coronary heart disease and obesity.
On the other side of the spectrum, some fats - namely the omegas (Omega-6 and Omega-3), are now thought to confer a wide range of health benefits and to actually promote an efficiently functioning metabolism, increase fat burning and drive weight loss - as this short but sweet infographic so aptly points out:
✿ Helping the body absorb certain vitamins and antioxidants;
✿ Supplying the body with essential nutrients;
✿ Building lean muscle mass faster
✿ Preventing hunger and overeating by curbing cravings for snacks and junk food.
But before you go scarfing up on all kinds of fats, it is absolutely essential to understand the difference in the various types of fats, and how to shop, store and cook with each type. Remember: not all fats are created equal and different fats need to be stored, cooked and eaten in different ways. The following links contain further useful information:
