Hey, I know awhile ago someone posted something that contained everything about carbs. I was wondering(after an unsuccessful search) if anyone made one on fats. :confused:

I have to do a science project on them and figured that this would be the easy way.

If there is a file on them, please give me the link. If anyone has info on them, i would appreciate that also.

Thanks :D

Don't know how reliable this is but it has a lot of info. I just ran a quick search and this caught my eye. Take it for what its worth.

i was thinking about the fats today when i accidently bought tuna in canola oil instead of spring water. i sat down to 1 can cuz its all i had and i wasnt going to drive 15 minutes to return the others when i have to goto the store tommorrow. so i pop open this can and it tastes like sh*t. the only diff between spring water tuna and the canola oil tuna is 6 grams of fat. but the 6 grams of fat are all polyunsat and monounsat. so is this good? are these good fats for me even though im cutting?

Yes it is still important to get a balanced EFA while you are cutting. I think that it is more important because it will keep you fuller longer as well. I would say to try to get about 30% of you daily cals from fats at least.

I wrote a rather ridiculously large article on them a few years back. It'll be on the main site in the diet archives if you can be bothered enough to read it.

From your link

"By the way, the only difference between oil and fat is whether or not it is a solid at room temperature."

I did not know that.

Anything saturated is solid at room temp.

Anything unsaturated is liquid (oil) at room temp.

Ever cooked bacon or sausages in a frying pan and noticed the left over oil in the pan harden up and go white as it cools? That's the saturated fat.

I don't particularly like the way that article words it.
