When a double bond is formed between two carbons, each carbon has a hydrogen atom attached either above or below it. In cis fats, the hydrogens are both on the same sides of t…he carbons involved in the double bond. In trans fats, the hydrogens are found on opposite sides of the carbons involved in the double bond. The arrangement of trans fats is more linear and allows them to "pack together" in certain areas of the body. This can contribute to cardiovascular disease.
Trans fats are hydrogenated unsaturated fats and they are supposed to be the worst fats there are for your health. Unsaturated fats are healthy fats and saturated fats and tra…ns fats are unhealthy fats. Trans fats are often added to processed foods to extend the shelf life. There are no such fats as cis fats. There are certainly cis fatty acids and trans fatty acids and the difference between the two is in the hydrogen atoms positions and one could be regarded as an isomer of the other. All fats are basically triglycerides which means glycerol triesterified with 3 fatty acids.

Answer Fat is a substance found in many deep fried, sugar filled, UNHEALTHY foods. Fat is categorized into 3 different categories: Saturated fat (Sat. Fat) Transact…ion fat (Trans. Fat) Unsaturated fat (Unsat. Fat) Sat and Trans fat are both solid at room temperature. Fat, as general category, is absolutely required by the body. Fats are an example of lipids, a class of molecules all living things produce. You would die without it, so don't attempt to eliminate it from your diet.
If you want to get fat, just don't exercise and eat lots of food.

One pound of fat is the equivalent of 3500 calories. To gain a pound of fat, you must consume 3500 calories in excess of the calories required to maintain your weight. To lose… a pound of fat you must create a calorie deficit (preferably over time, such as a 4 days to one week) equal to 3500 calories.. That "maintenance point" differs person-to-person dependant upon your height, weight, age, general activity level, and muscle composition. While a maintenance requirement may be 1800 calories per day for one individual, it may be 2800 calories per day for another. The most accurate means to determine a specific individual's maintenance requirement is to see a fitness specialist, such as a certified dietician or certified fitness trainer.. It is important to note that a pound gained on the scale is not necessarily a pound of fat. Muscle weighs significantly more than fat, while taking up significantly less space in the body. It is possible that a body can gain muscle composition and, in turn, put weight on according to the scale while still losing inches.. It is also important to note that one can gain a pound of fat by consuming too much of healthy foods just as easily as unhealthy foods. Our bodies do not discriminate against excess calories from fatty sources, versus excess calories from nutritional sources. Excess is excess! It is most recommended that intake consist of healthy sources because a body requires certain amounts of specific nutrients found in those healthy sources.
There are many foods that contain CSI-fats. For monounsaturated cis-fats, the foods include: avocados, canola oil, eggs, cashews, ground beef, bacon and olives. For polyun…saturated cis-fats, they would include: flaxseed, pine nuts, salmon, smelt, walnuts and soybeans.

Most trans fats are the product of hydrogenated oils while cis fats are always found naturally. Because trans fats have a different atomic structure then cis fats, they ar…e not metabolized properly by the human body. Additionally, trans fats are more prone to adversely affecting health.
Examples of cis-fats include monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat. Foods with cis-fts can help to decrease the risk of heart disease and lower blood pressure.
