The body needs fat for some of its important functions and to help the body to break down and utilize many of the nutrients found in the foods individuals eat. However, it is important to remember not all fats are created equal. Fats are typically classified as either good fats or bad fats. Good fats are found in fish and plant sources and include the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated varieties. Bad fats are trans fats, saturated fats, and cholesterol. These bad fats are found in many types of animal protein and highly refined or processed foods. Diabetes patients can be more prone to high cholesterol problems that can occur when eating too much of the bad fats, so they should be sure to include good fats and avoid bad fats in their diet.
