In our society, there are weight loss programs that recommend low fat, no-fat, or high protein diets. Should we eliminate fats from our diets altogether and increase proteins? What are some of the benefits that unsaturated fats and proteins provide when included in a balanced diet?

Here is a site that discusses all three as well as the kinds of fats and their usefullness. Your text/notes should supply information, too.
