Within the recommended daily amount of fat, we find that these should represent between approximately 30 to 35% of the recommended daily calories in the diet.

But as is obvious, it is not the same to choose healthy fats (such as those called unsaturated fats) than saturated fats or those called Trans fats.

In this case, it is clear that within a healthy diet and a balanced diet it is best to always opt for healthy fats, so that it almost becomes an obligation to eliminate saturated fats from the diet.

To achieve this, a very good option is to know which foods are rich in saturated fat, to reduce or even eliminate them from our diet.
