According to the American Heart Association, all fats contain the same amount of calories. However, it is recommended to replace saturated fats with mono-unsaturated fats. Consuming high levels of saturated fat can lead to heart disease.

Even while consuming healthy fats, we still have to watch avoiding over consuming calories to avoid weight gain. We can improve our heart health by also choosing healthy fats like olive oil, avocado, nuts, seeds and fish.
