How are fats used by the body?
The main purpose of fats in the body is to serve as a storage system and reserve supply of energy. During periods of low food consumption, fat reserves in the body can be mobilized and broken down to release energy. Fats serve as an insulation material to allow body heat to be conserved and fats line and protect delicate internal organs from physical damage. Fats in the diet can be converted to other lipids that serve as the main structural material in the membranes surrounding our cells. Fats are also used in the manufacture of some steroids and hormones that help regulate proper growth and maintenance of tissue in the body.

You may think fats are bad for your body but fats store energy that your body needs to fuction. Consuming too many fats daily makes your body become obese and out of shape. Stay away from foods that are high in trans and saturated fats such as chips and fried foods. Fats and oils from things like fish and olives are very good for you and your body.
