    And also for chocolates. Are there some chocolates that does not contain so much trans-fats and is still okay with moderation?

    I eat pretty healthy being an ovo lacto vegetarians. But I still enjoy chocolates and cheese from time to time.

      However, when it comes to chocolate, your best bet is to choose dark chocolate. That is because it is difficult to overeat it. You will be sick of its taste before you do.

    I had surgery this year and left hospital weighing 49KG. Now I am finally starting to regain some weight, but its a little too much. Your site has helped me choose foods and exercise plan. Thanks.

    • Thank you for your kind words Michael I am so happy that the site helped you and yes all of the information is accurate it was taken and compiled from hours of research that I did. Thanks again matey 🙂

  3. Hi! Very nice article! I totally agree with you. I am vegan so I do follow most of your instructions here, but it happens pretty frequently that I hear about fish oil. Do you have any information of what could be good replacement for beneficial elements in fish?
    Thank you!

    • in that case walnut burgers tempah and tofu replace the omega 3 fatty acids and protein lost through not eating fish and sorry it took a day to reply I’ve been out a lot 😉

      • It’s fine. I will do some research on these. Thank you so much for info!

    • Its fine research away you will find that they are all an excellent substitute for fish no doubts.

  4. Thanks mate for your positive comment. I am trying to construct a helpful site for all of us with an issue or two about our weight. The bad fats and good fats is trying to educate people that not all fats ARE BAD and that the body actually REQUIRES some of these good fats in order to function correctly.

  5. I’ve been hearing a lot about these different types of fats these days mainly from my mother ( she’s always dieting ! )
    She believes that certain fats can even aid your weight loss efforts. Is this true?
    If it is what fats would you recommend for this type of effect?

    • I would recommend any mono unsaturated fats or failing that then polyunsaturated fats. Stay away from trans fats and saturated fats DEFINITELY MATEY.

  6. Hey Simon,
    Read your article with much interest and gained a lot of information from it.
    One question though : The foods listed as being bad for us, would the opposite be true for people trying to gain weight ?
    I know of someone who is desperate to gain a bit of weight, and was wondering if this was a way to go.
    Just curious to know.

    • Well in short the answer would be a resounding yes BUT HOWEVER to eat the opposite would be deemed as crazy because of all of the added risk and health negatives/implications that goes along with it so no I personally do not think it is worth the risk just for physical satisfaction. It is nothing short of a quick fix to a metabolic situation.

  7. Great, informative post. I have a little bit of background on the different types of fats but it is always good to get a refresher on what fats to avoid and what fats to include in your diet! The most important thing people forget is that fats are a necessary part of your healthy diet! You just need to try to limit the bad fats and focus more on the good ones!

    Thanks for the post!

    • As I have previously stipulated not all fats can or should be associated with weight gain as mono and poly unsaturated fats are actually good for us and are a requirement for the human body.
