Fat is part of your body's natural fuel source. While having a healthy amount of "good fat" is essential for your bodily function, having too much "bad fat" can be detrimental for your body's health. Polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats are known as the “good fats." These fats can actually lower your risk of stroke and heart disease. While saturated fats are known as the "bad fats" and can raise your cholesterol and put you at higher risk for heart disease. The good fats come from nuts, fish, seeds and vegetables. The bad fats come from processed foods which are made with trans fat from partially hydrogenated oil.
