When we hear the word “fat,” many may associate it with weight gain or junk foods. However, lipids and fats are an essential part of the diet. Fats and lipids come in several different forms (i.e. monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, saturated, trans fats, sterols, triglycerides). Choose two types of lipids or fats. Discuss what they are, food sources from which we can obtain them, and the benefits and risks they have to our functioning and overall health. Explain your answer, including the appropriate APA citations from your research.
