“Fat is unhealthy!”

The basis of a healthy nutrition is a balanced combination of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Especially carbohydrates and fats can make your body ill, if consumed in high quantities over a longer period of time. It is therefore highly important to differentiate between good and bad fats. Bad fats, mostly of animal origin, can damage your body if consumed in high amounts. They increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases as well as lead to dyslipidemia. However, there are also good fats which are essential for our health and should be provided to the body in sufficient quantities. They include monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
