If there's one healthy eating message we are suddenly being bombarded with, it's that fats are now good for us.
But the true picture is not quite so simple. In fact, while we all need a certain amount of fat in our diet, we still shouldn't be including too much in our diets.
But from nut and coconut to plant and animal fats, which are are the right types? And how much should we be eating?Experts claim the real message we should all be heeding is that we need to be eating the right amount of the right type of fats. A report last month in the British Medical Journal revealed that saturated fat can be good for you. The study proved that people who eat butter, milk, cream and full-fat yoghurts generally have better heart health and less risk of Type 2 diabetes.
It goes against old guidelines from 1983, which warned Britons to adopt a low-fat diet aimed at reducing deaths from heart disease.
