Week 3: Good fats, bad fats, and cholesterol
Here is an overview of what will be covered in this class:
Fats and cholesterol get a lot of attention when making food choices. And for good reason. Eating the right amount of “good” fat may help us stay healthy. While eating too many of the “bad” fats can cause a long list of health issues.
This class will define the different types of fats and help you understand which ones are beneficial and which ones are harmful. You will learn how limiting your fat intake can help you manage your weight, reduce the risk of heart disease and from developing certain types of cancer. The group will discuss how limiting fat in the diet can improve the lipid profile and share tips on how to switch out some fats for healthier options.
