It is worth nothing that replacing saturated fat with refined carbohydrates, like sugary foods and drinks, won’t improve your health, according to the BHF.
“Replacing it with unsaturated fats such as oily fish, nuts, or vegetable oils like rapeseed or sunflower oil, does seem to reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke,” explains the health body.
It adds: “Remember, though, all types of fat are high in calories, so eating too much can lead to weight gain.”
To combat weight gain, you should engage in regular exercise.
