Does eating fat make you fat?

Filed under:

There's a common misconception that fat is the source of all nutritional woes. eDiets has set the record straight by asserting that fat does not instantly become converted to fat, nor does it automatically coat the inside of your arteries. Fat even has important nutrients, like Omega-3s, so it's important to incorporate some healthy fats, like olive oil, into your diet.

This isn't a green light to go fat-crazy and consume all the fatty foods you can find, however. Some fats -- trans fats and saturated fats -- should never be consumed, and the healthy fats should be consumed in moderation, because they're still high in calories.
