It really is enough to make anybody's head spin, even a dietary fat guru such as myself.
Being a highly visual learner, I need color, drawings and charts to help organize and retain information. I literally got through Paramedic school drawing components of the heart and making charts of the nervous system so I could understand how different medications worked when administered.
That being said, it was time for me to create a (legible) graph to share with others that would help explain the different categories of dietary fat.
For example, while lard (one of my fav's) is an obvious saturated fat from an animal source, it's primarily monounsaturated!
To top that off, animal products are only a high source of Omega 3 if they are pastured or grass fed. If you eat an animal fat that was fed a high grain/soy diet then you are also eating those Omega 6's.
Clear as mud, right?
Luckily this will be a topic I will continue to build and elaborate on. For now, just enjoy the colorful inforgraph I made just for you :)
