Saturated And Unsaturated Fats

by Sonali Anand Verma (2021-11-28)

Commonly, fats are not very well seen in the daily diet. We have associated these nutrients with the idea of obesity and cardiovascular disease. However, it is worth talking about saturated and unsaturated fats, as one of them is essential in the diet of an athlete.

Differences between saturated and unsaturated fats

As we have been saying, we have traditionally associated fats with the idea of an unhealthy diet. However, not all fats are harmful. What’s more, they are necessary according to the type of diet we want to carry out, such as sports.

Healthy fats

There is currently no clear consensus. Experts find no obvious evidence to say that saturated fats are harmful. Studies that have investigated the consumption of saturated and unsaturated fats show that the population with bad habits has less tolerated these types of nutrients. On the other hand, the sample with people who follow a healthy lifestyle, have not suffered any type of damage after ingesting saturated fat.

Finally, we recommend that you consult a specialist so that they can guide you and help you in the correct way. Ah! And remember that when it comes to health and well-being, Collaborative Research Group takes better care of you.
