10 heart disease-causing dishes high in unhealthy fats

10 Foods to Limit for Heart Health: From Meat to Margarine, Here’s What You Need to Know

High-fat foods such as fatty meats, poultry with skin, fast food, bacon, and processed meats can increase the risk of heart disease due to their high saturated fat content. There are four types of fats: monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, saturated, and trans fats. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are considered healthy, while too much saturated or trans fat can be harmful to heart health. Saturated fat increases bad LDL cholesterol levels, a major risk factor for heart disease due to plaque buildup in the arteries. Trans fats not only increase LDL cholesterol levels but also decrease good HDL cholesterol levels, further increasing the risk of heart disease.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends limiting trans fat consumption to less than 1% of total calorie intake per day and saturated fat to less than 10%. Here are ten foods that are rich in bad fats that should be limited for heart health:

1. Meat: Fatty meat is one of the least healthy sources of saturated fat.

2. Poultry with skin: Remove the skin to reduce saturated fat intake.

3. Ice cream: High in saturated fat and calories.

4. Margarine: High in saturated fat and often used in fried dishes.

5. French fries: High in saturated fat, calories, and cooked at high temperatures
