Obese women with diabetes type 2, who consumed safflower oil and/or conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), have been found to be extremely successful in decreasing the mass index of their bodies which was highly important for them and also in increasing the muscle mass, which is again, a very good sign. Dietary fat, on the other hand, is immensely important for normal growth and a good health. They form a part of the nervous system as well as the brain, provide long lasting energy, help one feel full after the meal has been eaten and hence help prevent over-eating and carry vitamins throughout the body. Moreover, they create more hormones inside the body, form cell membranes for every cell in the body and keep the person warm by maintaining the body temperature. The best advantage however, that dietary fats have provided to mankind is the two extremely important fatty acids that the human body can not produce naturally. These are linoleic acid and linolenic acid.
Dietary fats are of three different types namely, monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fat and trans fat. Most foods have a good natural balance of all three kinds of these fats but there are some food sources that are considered better for each kind. Monounsaturated fat is good for heart, decreases bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol. It can be consumed through almonds, cashews, avocados, hazelnuts, canola oil, peanut oil, olive oil, peanut oil and sunflower oil. Polyunsaturated fat is also heart healthy and has many health benefits. It contains linolenic acid as well as linoleic acid which is also known as Omega-3 fat and is very good for health. Polyunsaturated fat controls blood pressures, enhances the response of the immune system and stops blood clotting. It can be best gotten from tuna, salmon, trout, mackerel, walnuts, herring, flaxseeds, soybeans, sardines, pine nuts, sesame seeds, pin nuts as well as oils such as sunflower oil, canola oil, cottonseed oil, soybean oil and corn oil. Omega-3 fat is fairly obtainable from legumes, sardines, tuna, lake trout, tofu, flaxseeds, canola oil, flaxseed oil, nuts, halibut, mackerel, soynuts and soybeans and leafy vegetables (mostly greens). Trans fat is manufactured artificially and are considered better choice over saturated fats. It can be found in fast food, donuts, muffins, fried foods, cookies, shortening, margarine and crackers. Also known as animal fat, saturated fat comes originally from animals but is also found in oils, seeds, avocados and nuts. They can be consumed through butter, lard, canola oil, eggs, skim milk, cream, canola oil, ice-cream, cheese, whole meat, poultry skin, palm, palm kernel oil or red meat. All these fats can also be taken through dietary fats and oil supplements.
Although nutritionists can help maintain a healthy diet and give better advices, it is a good idea to consume 30% of the food each day that contains fat. If not through food, dietary fats and oils are widely available as supplements to be bought and put to use. A doctor’s prescription however is always recommended before the course starts.
