Fats

Fats are highly concentrated with energy that can be stored in the body for future use.  Fats contain more than twice the energy contained by carbohydrates but must be broken down in fatty acids.

Although too much fat in the diet can lead to problems such as obesity and heart disease, a moderate amount of fat in your diet is good for you.
