The Place Where I Can Be Myself

Meal Planning for Lipids

The AMDR for fat in the diet ranges from 20-35% for adults. This level of ingestion
allows for the sufficient intake of the macronutrients that are required for nutrition (Simpson &
Raubenheimer, 2014). The range also ensures that the saturated fats present in the body are kept
at moderate levels, hence preventing the risk of obesity and diabetes.
Before reading this week’s resources, I was under the impression that all fats were bad
and they should be avoided at all costs. The ingestion of fat was unpalatable as I thought it a
leading cause of weight gain, high cholesterol levels, obesity and a host of several other chronic
diseases. I was also unaware that there were different types of fat.
From the readings, I now understand that fat is a necessary aspect of human nutrition
and it is sourced from both animal and plant sources. Without fats, many of the functions that
occur in the human body, such as the construction of cell membranes and the signaling of
molecules, would not happen (Ulijaszek, Mann, & Elton, 2012). The consumption of fat-soluble
vitamins such as A, D, E and K would also be inhibited. I now know that the consumption of
unsaturated fats is essential for normal body functioning.
