Fats Overview – Let’s Talk About Fats

So what’s the deal with fats? Are fats really bad for you? The simple answer is yes and no. Just like how earlier in another blog post I talked about Carbohydrates the good and bad ones ( complex and simple) fats also had good and bad ones. Fats are considered one of our Macronutrients (Carbohydrates, Fats, and Proteins). You get nine kcals from fats per gram while with carbohydrates and proteins you only get 4 kcals per gram for each. So I know when we here the word fat when it comes to food we get scared but there is no reason to be its all about putting the right fats into your body.

So for the whole month of February we will be talking about fats. This first blog post is just an overview for what is to come in the next few weeks.

We are going to be talking about:

  • What are fats?
  • Why are fats good for us?
