10 heart disease-causing dishes high in unhealthy fats

Saturated fats, found in foods like fatty meats, poultry with skin, fast food, bacon, and processed meats, can increase the risk of heart disease. There are four types of fats: monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, saturated, and trans fats. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are considered good for heart health, while too much saturated or trans fat can be harmful. Saturated fat increases bad LDL cholesterol levels and plaque buildup in the arteries. Trans fats not only increase LDL cholesterol levels but also decrease good HDL cholesterol levels.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends limiting trans fat consumption to less than 1% of total calorie intake per day and saturated fat to less than 10%. Below is a list of 10 foods that are high in bad fats that should be limited for heart health:

1. Meat – Fatty meat is one of the least healthy sources of saturated fat.

2. Poultry with skin – Remove the skin to reduce saturated fat intake.

3. Ice cream – High in saturated fat and calories.

4. Margarine – High in saturated fat and often used in fried dishes.

5. French fries – High in saturated fat, calories, and cooked at high temperatures.

6. Smoked pork – High in saturated fat which can increase bad cholesterol levels.
