Fats and sugars

Sugar is unhealthy but there are healthy fats and unhealthy fats

Most of us think of fat as something that we should get rid of, diet off, or have removed by surgery. Likewise, dietitians and the media have convinced us that we should reduce the amounts of fats we eat to 30 percent of calories ingested or below, often making little distinction as to which types of fats are harmful and which are good.With the advent of Dr Atkins's "new" diet, all this was turned on its head and suddenly we were told we can eat all the fats we want; that it is sugar that is the real enemy, So, what are we to believe?

Well, Dr Atkins was half right. Sugar is the biggest enemy we face in the world of nutrition and health. Yet, the answer is not to engorge ourselves on fats of every type. Over the past thirty years, scientists have learned a great deal about fat metabolism and how different fats affect our health. It turns out that fats play a major role in most of the cell's metabolism and when certain fats are eaten in excess, they can act like powerful drugs.
