(calm music) Hi, I'm Sarah Jane and this is all about losing weight using keto So if you haven't seen any of my other videos before, make sure you click on Subscribe Fats What do they do in the body? Which ones should you eat and which ones should you avoid? The ketogenic diet is made up of the macronutrients of 10% carbohydrates, 20% protein and 70% fats So usually when most people hear that, they freak out all about the fats

So before you go ahead and do that, in this video, we're going to talk all about fats Fats have an important function in the body They keep your body warm They give you energy They build your cells

They protect your organs and they absorb vitamins and minerals from your food and they also create the hormones that help your body work properly So let's get down to basics There are three categories of fats, trans fats, saturated fats and unsaturated fats The difference between these three lies in their chemical structure All fats are made up of a chain of carbon atoms that are linked or bonded to a hydrogen atom

So in the case of saturated fats, the carbon atom is covered completely by the hydrogen atom hence saturated and also this is what makes it solid at room temperature Unsaturated fats have fewer hydrogen atoms that are linked and this is what makes them liquid at room temperature Trans fats go through an industrial process known as hydrogenation So you'll probably see these listed as partly hydrogenated oils on your ingredients So this is to disguise the fact that they are actually trans fats

Trans fats are created to last longer, to improve the taste and improve the texture You'll find trans fats in things like cakes, cookies, biscuits, margarine, all of those yummy things but whilst trans fats may taste good, they are not good for you They will increase your LDL cholesterol as well as your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes So avoid trans fats at all costs Saturated fats are your animal fats

So these are your butter, cheese, cream, eggs, coconut oils So eat these in moderation Unsaturated fats These are the ones that I want you to eat the most of These are your plant based fats

So these are further broken down into two more categories, monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats Mono meaning one chemical bond attached and these are your avocados, your peanut oil, olive oils, your nuts, almonds, hazelnuts and macadamias Polyunsaturated fats Poly meaning many chemical bonds attached and these are your essential fatty acids So these are your flaxseeds, your chia seeds, leafy green vegetables and all of your fatty fishes like your salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines

So these are going to give you your omega-3s and omega-6s and your heart and your brain loves these So focus on these So to sum up, stay away from those trans fats, eat your animal fats, the saturated fats in moderation and focus more on the unsaturated fats to give you your omega-3s and omega-6s that your heart and brain loves These are what's going to give you the healthy mind and body and it's also going to get you to achieve the weight loss that you're after So I hope you've enjoyed this video today

Put down any questions or comments that you have and I'll see you in the next video (calm music)
