How can we reduce our fat intake? There is such a thing as healthy fat intake. Let’s take a closer look.
An average individual has a tendency to eat way too much fat, a factor that’s associated to various health problems, including cancer, hypertension, and heart disease. Diets that are high in fat are also linked to breast and colon cancer. There are also studies that link high fat to prostate cancer, too.
It’s not a hopeless case. It is still possible to can bring fat consumptions down to a healthy range by making some modifications in cooking, food preparation, eating styles,and even shopping for food.
The amount of fat you consume will vary daily. Some meals in some days will have higher fat content than others. But don’t worry, even high-fat meals can be controlled withhealthy a eating pattern as long as you balance those days properly. What is important is the average fat intake over the period of weeks and months, not the particularly the fat intake of each food you consume at every meal .
Younger adults and highly active individuals who have higher calorie demands may probably eat a bit more fat than those who are watching their weight. The older adults and those who aren’t living a very active lifestyle must aim for a lower fat intake. This way, the fat intake can be controlled and thus avoid a lot of problems associated with fat.
