Why should I limit my intake of saturated fat?

There are two kinds of fats: saturated and unsaturated fats. For a healthy balanced diet it is important to limit foods that are rich in saturated fats and increase the intake of unsaturated fats. Studies show that saturated fat intake may increase cholesterol levels and therefore may increase the risk for heart and blood vessel diseases. Saturated fat typically comes from animal-based products such as butter, meat, sausages, milk, cheese, butter and other dairy products. Unsaturated fats on the other hand are “good” fats that have a positive impact on your body and especially on cholesterol levels. Plant-based foods are in general low in saturated fats.
