What does fat do for our bodies? Cushions our vital organs, insulates our bodies, and stores energy for later use. Provide more than twice the energy as the same amount of protein or carbohydrates. Important in energy production, temperature regulation, and distribution of vitamins ADEK.
Saturated fats are: usually found in meat and dairy products and are solid at room temperature. Vegetable oils also contain large proportions of it. Too many can clog arteries and increase your chances of heart disease.
