Our body needs fat, not the least because it is an important source of energy.
Fat contains almost twice as much energy as carbohydrates and proteins, which played an important role earlier when we did not have the same excess as we have today.

Choose unsaturated fat, such as fish, rapeseed oil, olive oil and nuts for example, and cut down on saturated fat such as butter, French fries, biscuits and ice cream.
In doing so, you will reduce bad cholesterol and therefore also reduce your risk of heart and vascular diseases.
Increase your intake of unsaturated fat
- Fry food in rapeseed oil or olive oil instead of butter or margarine.
- Toss salads with a good vinaigrette instead of a creamy dressing.
- Cut down on meat in favour of oily fish such as salmon and herring.
- A handful of nuts is good fat for your body.
