    Default Saturated Fat Does Not Clog Arteries

    Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are the major nutrients your body needs for growth, repair, movement, and maintaining homeostasis. These macromolecules are broken down and absorbed into the body at different rates and into specific forms as they travel through the organs in your digestive system. Since there are only three of them, and since medical researchers have known about them and how they're metabolized for over a century, you'd think they'd pretty much have them down by now. Unfortunately, not so much--especially when it comes to fats and carbohydrates. In fact, every few years they do wheelies and one-eighties on them flipping between which ones are healthy and which ones are dangerous.

    (This written before I read the article)

    There's a world of difference between animal saturated fats and vegetable saturated fats I think, but could be wrong until proven right.

    Carbohydrates are essential if you burn a lot of daily calories, unhealthy and a very likely weight burden if you don't. Stick with chocolate much healthier.

    Proteins I'll read up on veggies vs. animal.

    Ora, the only vegetable fats I can think of are coconut oil and maybe avocados. There's no substantial difference that I'm aware of; both are healthful in reasonable quantities.

    As a Type 2 diabetic, I confine my love of the vegetable kingdom to the non-sweet, non-starchy ones: tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, all greens, beans, peas, peppers, summer squash etc. Most of the sweeter/starchier ones, like beets, carrots, potatoes, winter squash, I consume in strict moderation.
