Fat is an essential nutrient to support the functioning of our body. It also supplies 9 calories per gram of fat consumed, which can serve as storage reserves for the body, to be used when required. It is necessary to help and absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Many people are confused about the types of fats and what may be good or not so good.
So I have prepared the following to try and simplify the subject (you may need to magnify in your reader):
However bear in mind that consuming concentrated fats in the form of oils (such as olive oil, coconut oil etc) is not recommended. Basically these oils are all the product of refinement, and are nutrient deficient, and therefore not in their natural form for the body to be able to use. It is always better to consume the foods in which the oils are present rather than the extracted oils from those foods.
