Fats - The Final Word

Evidence is accumulating that saturated fats in themselves are not the villain that leads to heart disease. Carbohydrates are just as much to blame. Healty eating should involve consuming proteins, polyunsaturated fats, and some monounsaturated fats. Carbohydrates should be kept below 30%. The review does not specify a limit on saturated fats, although it presents some indication that lowering their contribution below 10% of total calories may not provide any enhanced benefit.

Bottom line - enjoy a hamburger patty in moderation, but severely limit your eating of the bun and fries!
