The chemical and physiological processes by which the body builds and maintains itself and by which it breaks down food and nutrients to produce energy.

Saturated Fat

fat that is found in foods from animal meats and skin, dairy products and some vegetables.

Unsaturated Fat

a fat or oil found mainly in vegetables; thought to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease

Polyunsaturated Fat

may help lower blood cholesterol. They contain essential fats (that cannot be manufactured in the body) and are found mainly in vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn and soybean. Fish and nuts (eg. almonds) are a great source of polyunsaturated fats.

Mono unsaturated Fat

dietary fats, such as olive oil or canola oil, that do not seem to have any affect on blood cholesterol
