What happens to the fat that you put in your mouth? We all use fat for cooking and baking and we also know that it usually enhances the taste of food. But do we really need it and if we do, how much is good? Where does it go after digestion and does it have any significant function in your body or is the function of fat just to make us more cuddly?
What kind of food are the best protein sources? All of us enjoy a good braai, but we need to know whether we can stay healthy by sticking to steak and boerewors weekend after weekend. Fortunately there are other alternatives, as well like chicken and fish.
