High Fat Breakfast – Why healthy fats at all?
Fats are divided into unsaturated and saturated fatty acids. Saturation describes the chemical structure. The unsaturated are healthy, the saturated should make up the smaller part of the diet.
Your body can produce monounsaturated fatty acids, for example contained in avocados, peanuts or coconuts, rapeseed oil and olive oil.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids must be added to your diet.
Good Omega-3 suppliers: Walnuts, linseed oil, rapeseed oil and Chia seeds.
Did you know that fat is the most efficient of all energy sources? For comparison: One gram of fat contains nine kilocalories, one gram carbohydrates or protein only scarcely half. In addition, fat is stored almost everywhere in the body. Thus the energy available to you from fats is almost inexhaustible. A good fat metabolism is required so that your body prefers and uses your fat storage for as long as possible.
Not vital, but still a decisive factor when it comes to quality of life: Fats are the biggest flavour carriers. In addition, they saturate longer and prevent ravenous hunger attacks.
Nevertheless, if you take in more fat than your body needs, it will not excrete it, but store it. By the way, the fat cells do not multiply as a result, but only grow in size
