Saturated and Tran Fat raise your cholesterol levels!

Limiting saturated fat and completely cutting out tans fat are the two things you should eradicate from your diet first when trying to eat healthy. Both of these fat sources increase your cholesterol level which also puts you at a higher risk for stroke and heart conditions. There are several ways through which you can cut back on these two fats.

Limit fats that are in solid state. Lay low on fats that at room temperature remain at solid state such margarine, butter or shortening. The only exception to a solid fat is coconut oil or coconut butter. So instead of butter you can switch to coconut butter. Coconut based fat actually help to lower cholesterol levels and also induce weight loss. Fat in animal protein too is solid fat so try to choose leaner cuts of whatever animal protein you prefer to eat.

Learn to read your food labels. Most processed or frozen foods have added saturated fat and trans fat in them. So be label-savvy and be wary of sneaky hidden fats that might be present in your choice of packaged food. Keep an eye for ingredients such as “hydrogenated oil” which is just a complex name for trans fat!

Charring, barbequing or drying meats creates carcinogenic substances!

creates carcinogenic substances!

One of the main reasons people suffer from cancer is because their diets are heavily loaded with carcinogens. Carcinogens are cancer-inducing chemicals that tend to develop when food is cooked or preserved. Types of food in which carcinogens are usually present include charred meat, cured meat, smoked foods, dried meat, preserved meats such as sausages, salami. The following are a few ways in which you can minimize the carcinogen count

Avoid cooking oils on high heat. Oils tend to turn carcinogenic when cooked on high heat higher than 250 degrees. Low-heat cooking prevents this phenomenon from taking place.

Do not barbeque your meat too much. When you char or barbeque your meat the process encourages the creation of carcinogenic substances. If you still do feel like barbequing make certain that you go easy on the barbeque and that you cook your meat at a moderate temperature.

 Get in the habit of storing your oils in cool places and in airtight containers. It’s essential to store your oils in tight containers away from the sunlight as they tend to go rancid rapidly when they are exposed to heat.

Opt for fresh meats. Instead of getting processed meats such as dried or cured meat etc, chose fresh meats to keep the carcinogenic substances at bay.
