Default which is better - Saturated Fat, monosaturated, polysaturated and trans fat

Hi All

More questions on my mind. Since we (diabetic) should follow a low carb and high fat diet. I was wondering what is difference between Saturated Fat, monosaturated, polysaturated and trans fat and which one is better for us. (diabetic). How much fat can i have per day ?

Thanks
Varun

PUFA rarely, Trans fats never. The others are OK. We aim for 70% of calories from fats. Somedays it's possible, somedays it's not. But that's the general idea.

Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids. Sed and nut oils, in particular.

Olive oil is okay, but I use less often than sat fats.

Read the book Toxic Oil and it will explain for you why saturated fats are really the best.
