olive oils, olives, peanut oil, avocados Monounsaturated fats
Safflower oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, most fish oils Polyunsaturated fats

What is the daily dietary recommendation of fiber? answer within grams 21-38 grams
Saturated Fat saturated with hydrogen, animal origin, increase blood cholesterol levels, <10% of total calorie intake
Unsaturated Fat One or more places on chain where hydrogen is missing ie monounsaturated/polyunsaturated, blood cholesterol lowering effect
Trans Fat Produced during hydrogenation, found in foods partially hydrogenated, increase blood cholesterol levels
Cholesterol Belongs to class of substances called sterols, does NOT provide energy, synthesized in liver, <300mg/d
Water soluble vitamins B vitamins and vitamin C, not able to be stored, excreted in urine
Fat soluble vitamins vitamins A,D,E,K, carried in fatty portions of food, stored in body, excess= toxic levels
Vitamin C recommended intake and food sources Men-90mg/d Women-75mg/d Smokers-+35mg/d, upper limit 2g/d, Citrus fruits,juices
