The Calorie Heavyweights!
Fats are the most concentrated source of food energy, providing a lot of calories but little nutrition.
Yet, you do need some fat in your diet. A small amount of certain fats is essential for proper functioning of your cells.
It’s when you eat too much fat that health problems occur.
Not all fats are created equal. Many are high in calories, so it’s important to limit total fat consumption to help control your weight, blood sugar, and blood cholesterol.
