"eating a moderate amount of all types of fat is linked to a reduced risk of early mortality compared to the much-touted low-fat diet — while consuming a high-carbohydrate diet is associated with an increased risk of dying early."
"Dehghan said the healthiest diet would be made up of 50 to 55 per cent carbohydrates and 35 per cent total fat, including both saturated and unsaturated types."
saturated fat : meat and dairy products
monounsaturated fat : nuts, avocados, and vegetable and olive oils
polyunsaturated fat : walnuts, sunflower and flax seeds, fish, corn, soybean and safflower oils.
