THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question: Tell me about FAT in my diet.  Should I be trying to eliminate all of it?

Answer: Just hearing the word 'FAT' probably makes you shudder because fat has gotten a lot of bad press lately. We have all heard the warnings by now. Excess fat in our diets is blamed for arteriosclerosis, chronic heart disease, cancer, etc. But don't forget the fact that fat is also an important nutrient source for the body. Fat keeps you warm, lubricates your cells and helps your body absorb important vitamins and minerals.
Fat comes in saturated forms such as in butter and lard, and unsaturated forms such as plant oils. The saturated fats are the ones to watch especially carefully because they contain large amounts of cholesterol. Unsaturated fats have just as many calories as other fats but they do not contain cholesterol and they do provide us with an essential fatty acid, linoleic acid.
I suggest you do some more research about the specific fats you are consuming before eliminating all of them.
