  She provides you with twice as much energy
  as Carbo Cal or Peter Protein.

 She is very handy and can do
  a lot of things like…
FUNCTIONS OF FAT FANNY 9…
 Supplies energy

 Insulates

 Protects internal organs

 Carries fat soluble vitamins

 Is stored for hunger

 Satiety (tastes good and satisfies)
 She is, however, a rather complicated
  person. Let’s see if we can get to know her
  better.
What are all these things?
    Section 1                    Section 2
 Fatty acids (Fats and       Cholesterol
  Oils)                              High density
      Saturated                      lipoprotein HDL
      Unsaturated                   Low density lipoprotein
         Polyunsaturated
                                      LDL
         Monounsaturated




                      Section 3
                     How do they
                    work together?
Section 1 -KINDS OF FATTYACIDS

 Saturated
 Unsaturated
    (mono and poly)
SATURATED FATS…
Solid at room temperature
 All the H molecules are used
 Come from animal sources – also coconut
  and palm oils
 Come from meats, milk, butter, lard, other
  animal products
 Worst kind of fat for cholesterol
UNSATURATED FATS …
 Polyunsaturated
  Many H molecules are unbonded
  Liquid at room temperature
  Corn, soybean, safflower oil
  Better for cholesterol than saturated fat
 Monounsaturated
  Only 1 H molecule is unbonded
  Liquid at room temperature
  Olive oil, peanut oil, canola oil, fish oils
  Best for controlling cholesterol
 Section 2 -CHOLESTEROL…
 Definition – a waxy, fatty like substance that
  surrounds the cells in the body and is
  essential for many bodily functions, including
  the nervous system.
 It is found in animal tissue but never in plants

 Your liver manufactures all the cholesterol
  you need.

 There are two different types of cholesterol:
TYPES OF CHOLESTEROL…
 HDL – Good cholesterol. It moves quickly
  throughout the body and helps to remove the
  bad cholesterol. We want a high HDL
  reading.
 LDL – Bad cholesterol. It moves slowly
  throughout the body. Excess settles in the
  blood vessel walls and produces plaque. We
  want a low LDL reading.
DISEASES…
 Heart disease, high blood
pressure and obesity are linked
to high levels of LDL.
Section 3 – WORKING TOGETHER
Your body uses fats to produce the cholesterol.

Different kinds of fats affect the different kinds
  of cholesterol.

HDL
         How can I control my
            cholesterol?
 Cut down on saturated fats




 Increase aerobic exercise
Recommendations to remember…
 30% or less of the calories you eat each day
  should come from fats. (10% from saturated
  and 20% from unsaturated.)
  For a 2000 calorie diet that would be app. 66
  grams
 Only 300 mg. or less of cholesterol should be
  eaten each day
Fats in Fast Foods
Reducing Fat Intake
Putting It All Together…
                Fats
    Saturated           Unsaturated

                 Poly             Mono



   Worst         Better           Best
