The different Fats and their effects on our Bodies


In our modern world, a lot of people have a problem with digesting fat. This is especially true when people have had their gallbladder removed. Why is it that this type of operation is so often performed to start with. One big reason lies in the way we are eating. Our diets are too high in Sugar and processed carbohydrates and that can harm us as it makes us have an insulin resistance.

To support a healthy digestive activity it might be a good idea to take a supplement which includes an enzyme with a combination of Ox Bile, Amylase, Protease, and Lipase so your gallbladder can function well and is also good for optimal fat and lipid utilization. This type of supplement should be taken before each meal.



The different Fats we eat

It is important to check which type of fat we have in our diets. Do not eat refined cooking oils like corn or soy. Fried foods and also margarine is to be avoided. These fats are dangerous to your health as they are trans fats because they create inflammation and are linked to heart disease.

You will find healthy oil in avocados, you can eat one a day if you like, extra virgin olive oil,
Unrefined coconut oil, olives, seeds and nuts, and butter from grass-fed cows as well as their meat.

Coconut oil is Healthy

I would like to go a bit more in-depth on Coconut oil. The reason being that the information out there is contradictory and like that is confusing the people. When there appears an article in the USA Today with the headline “ Coconut Oil is not Healthy. It has never been Healthy” What would you think? Probably you would think I better steer clear of this oil. This is absolutely wrong as there is not 1 single study which shows that coconut oil causes heart disease.

The American Heart Association (AHA) has still not acknowledged this fact.

It will still take a while till we come to recognize that a low-fat diet does not save us from heart disease. It is the opposite, a low-fat diet can significantly contribute to heart disease. The AHA has been broadcasting that “fat is bad and will kill you” How wrong they are. We were told to eat a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet and eat lots of starchy carbs.  AHA gets a lot of money from cereal makers. It is argued that cereals are fat-free but often hold up to over 70 % in sugar. So you can imagine that eating cereals are bad for you, period.

The people in the South Pacific have used coconut oil for thousands of years without any ill effect.
It has quite some health benefits like raising your HDL, the good cholesterol. People from those cultures who have a high intake of this oil, sometimes like 60 % of their diets, have no heart disease.
Coconut oil is also anti-fungal and anti-microbial and it contains lauric acid which is a great help for your immune function.

Our Personal Responsibility

We are responsible for our own health that is why we have to be informed well about the different options we have. The AHA has invented the “heart healthy” label so when you go shopping you can easily find these “healthy” foods. Most of the time you end up buying something which is low in fat and high on sugar. The AHA is against healthy fats and promotes fats like canola oil, for sure an oil to be completely avoided. One should ask the question who sponsors the AHA and then come to one’s own conclusion.


Dr. Mark Hyman has written extensively on Healthy Fats.
He has written numerous books, you might care to look at this one, “Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook”.

Thanks for this great article. I knew that the Heart Association invented the “heart healthy” label, but did not clue in that they were mistakenly promoting sugars above fats. Its no wonder we are in a diabetes crisis in North America. You have mentioned the adverse effects for heart health, are fats good for diabetics?

    Good evening

    Thank you for reading my post on the different fats. Heart disease, diabetes, immune disorders, inflammation, all these are ailments caused by our unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle. A private person has not got a say in everything so if his surroundings are unhealthy, radiation, air, water etc one can only go and live somewhere else. We do have a say on what we put into our mouth. I think a lot of people are brainwashed by the commercials making them believe something is good for them when it is not. 

    I believe that high-calorie diets rich in saturated fats cause these type of ailments, also diabetes. I have to differentiate of course. Bacon or fat in red meat are saturated fats but do not clog your arteries. Margarine and canola oil to just name a few as an example, considered “Heart Healthy” they are the culprits as it is polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) Good fats as are contained in nuts, seeds, avocado and also virgin olive oil and coconut oil have a beneficial effect on your health. The modern diet has far too much of Omega 6, a change in diet will bring back the balance.

I was really surprised to see that you’ve included margarine in your ‘no-go’ list for fats not to consume. I eat it regularly and I was always under the impression that it was low fat…I didn’t realise that it was actually full of trans fats! 

Bearing that in mind – would you say that more regular, full dairy butter is a better long term health option when it comes to buttering your bread?

    Good afternoon Chris,

    Nice to see you again. For many years we have been fed wrong information. Remember we were told no eggs, no salt, no butter or meat, and the list goes on. Margarine is a stupid human invention, it is not a natural product. 

    Lets go back to nature, there we will find the things which are good for us. Over time people have not become healthier, just look around you. Even with the so-called Health Care, we are worse off. I am sending you a link on margarine, I would say stop eating it. Butter from happy cows = organic will not harm your health and try some virgin extra olive oil.

    Thank you for your visit.

    Regards, Taetske

Rob S.

I can’t agree more that there is too much sugar that we eat.It’s the cause of my diabetes and I’m working on it.

I know there are good fats and bad fats but we do need the good fats.I write about coconut oil on my website because I know it’s very good for you.

Anything that is heart healthy is what we should be eating. It’s really time we took serious notice of what fats are good and which ones aren’t.But you, the thing is, just knowing what’s good doesn’t cut it. We must take action and actually follow through with the beneficial knowledge that we know.

I’m going to look into Mark Hyman’s book too. Thank you!

    Good afternoon Rob,

    Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF?

    Over time I have adopted healthy habits. Virgin extra olive oil, seeds and nuts, avocados which grow here on my farm, and I take 3 soupspoons of coconut oil a day. My personal food evolution started in 1986. I tried out many things and think I am now eating the things which are good for my health.

    Do have a look at Dr. Hyman, he really is good.

    Regards, Taetske
