      The fact sheet reviews healthy fats and how to incorporate a healthy amount of fat into our diet. Fats are necessary for our bodies to function properly. In fact, fats are an important part of a healthy diet and we can't live without them. Fats can be grouped into two groups: saturated and unsaturated. Unsaturated fats include polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. Both these fats, when eaten in moderation and used in place of saturated and trans fats, can help lower cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of heart disease. We provide a list of "Do's" and "Tips" which gives examples of how to select fats wisely and incorporate healthy changes into our diet. We also provide a guide for selecting an appropriate portion size of fat.
