Trans fat make you fat
Have you heard of trans fat? You probably have since they are measured on your food lables, but what are they? I failed chemistry in college, but let me take a crack at it. Food manufacturers take a good fat ( the unsaturated fat) and an extra hydrogen atom to it through a process called hydrogenation. So you've probably seen hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated foods. They are not good for you. Food manufacturers do this to increase shelf life and to make a more desirable product. Anything that is built to sit longer on a shelf you don't want! Or it might make a shelf out of your rump. No idea what that means, but I’m going with it. Besides making you fatter it clogs your arteries, increases LDL cholesterol (AKA the Bad cholesterol), decreases HDL (the good cholesterol). All of that will increase your risk of heart disease. Trans fat consumption has also been linked to: cancer, diabetes, liver dysfunction, depression, and Alzheimer’s. So now you know. Now here is what you need to look at. The top 10 WORST Trans Fat Foods in the Supermarket courtesy of Eat This Not That. 10. Pillsbury White Chunk Macadamia Nut Big Deluxe Classics 9. Pasta Roni Fettuccine Alfredo 8.
