1) Limit intake of foods high in saturated fat such as many biscuits, cakes, pastries, pies, processed meats, commercial burgers, pizza, fried foods, potato chips, crisps and other savoury snacks.2) Replace high fat foods which contain predominantly saturated fats such as butter, cream, cooking margarine, coconut and palm oil with foods which contain predominantly polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats such as oils, spreads, nut butters/pastes and avocado.
There is controversy surrounding the consumption of natural oils high in saturated fats (extra virgin coconut oil, coconut milk, red palm oil high in carotenoids/tocotrienols) or omega 6 fats (sunflower/safflower oil). Some studies suggest that the former are not detrimental but the latter may be detrimental if consumed in large amounts.
As the evidence emerges I will review them in my posts. In the mean time, enjoy eating a wide variety of extra virgin oils (added mainly to vegetables/fish etc to make more palatable) and avoid commercial foods high in animal fats or hydrogenated vegetable fats.
