Cut Out These Two Foods to Skip the Saturated Fat

December 9, 2014 | klein

Its important to understand the different type of fats that are found in the foods you eat. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are actually healthy in limited amounts. However, too much saturated fat can lead to high cholesterol and even some forms of cancer. If you know which foods contain this type of fat, you can avoid eating too much of them. Here are two foods that contain high levels of saturated fat.

  1. Butter. While it gives moisture and flavor to some favorite comfort foods, butter contains more saturated fat than most other foods. Instead of cutting it out altogether, you can limit your intake to a tablespoon a day.
  2. Ice cream. Another favorite food for many, ice cream (and other dairy products) contains high amounts of saturated fat. Treat yourself to this cool dessert once a week instead of once a day.
