We know that you have heard many things about the proper diet. We are not going to discuss all the arguments about what a healthy diet is. We will make only one point. If you want to reduce your risk of a heart attack, you should reduce the amount of saturated fat in your diet. Saturated fat raises your LDL cholesterol up to 20%.
Fats are made up of carbon atoms and hydrogen atoms (picture a daisy chain). Carbons can be connected to each other with one bond or two bonds. A saturated fat has only one bond whereas an unsaturated fat has at least one, two carbon carbon bond (see picture below). Avoid food that contain saturated fat - food examples are on the next page.
