I have serious issues with the fat recommendations on this site. They are based on conventional wisdom and official government recommendations. They are not supported by the latest research.
Make lower fat and healthier fat choices
The following guidelines are wrong in my opinion:
Lower fat food are less calorie dense
Fat is more satisfying than the same calories in Carbs. Low fat foods usually have more processed carbs.
Dietary fat is more likely to convert to body fat than carbohydrates or protein
This ignores the hormonal effect of insulin
Less tendency to over eat
It's true that fat and carbs together are a calorie bomb that encourages over eating but fat and protein together in the absence of significant carbs is satisfying and does not promote over eating.
Too much saturated fat may increase blood cholesterol or LDL
Saturated fats raise good HDLs and large LDLs. Both are protective (or at least correlated with good health). There is no proven link between high LDLs or high total cholesterol with heart disease. Carbs are known to raise triglycerides and small LDLs which are known to cause heart disease.
Omega-3 fatty acids
I agree Omega 3 is protective.
Effect of Omega 6 on inflammation is missing.
