Too much fat in your diet will have a pretty straight forward impact:

  • You'll put on more weight- and this comes with a whole bunch of health hazards.
  • if you are eating saturated fats, you also run the risk of high cholesterol and heart disease.
The dangers of too much fat in your diet The most obvious risk that a high-fat diet has is that it might cause you to put on weight.
Foods that are high in fat are often high in calories. Taking in more calories than you can burn off will cause your body to store this extra energy as fat.

The fatter you are, the more likely you are to encounter the following illnesses:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease

How can too much far harm you
Another way a high-fat diet will affect you is in the form of saturated fats.
Fat is usually divided into two types; saturated and unsaturated.

The unsaturated kind is usually considered worse for you, and includes foods like butter, cheese, cream, biscuits, and lardy meat.

This type of fat causes cholesterol levels to build up in the blood, and may result in heart disease.
Trans fats- a third type of fat, have much the same effect.

I would always recommend reading the nutritional information printed on food if you are concerned about your fat intake.

Getting yourself informed can be the difference between a healthy life and an untimely death!

Eating food high in fat leads to a lot of problem but this depends on the constitution, lifestyle and the type of fat one chooses.

Too much fat easily leads to excess weight, increases the risk of illness.

Too much of unsaturated fat is a strong risk factor for heart disease and stroke, fat supplies approximately 9 calories per gram compared to 4 calorie per gram of protein or carbohydrate.
The excess calories are also stored in the body as fat. For those who want to lose weight, eating less fat reduces the calorie intake without losing necessary nutrients.

Effects of fat can vary from one person to another. It is advised to reduce the intake of saturated fat. Generally, the more the solid a fat is at room temperature, the higher the level of saturated and Trans fatty acids.
Nutritional experts believe that reducing the intake, from the typical present level of 40% of total calories to 30%-35%, be eating less saturated and Trans fatty acids makes a substantial difference.
For a woman eating about 180 calories a day mean reducing fat intake from 80 grams a day to 60 grams approximately.
For a man eating 2400 calories a day mean reducing fat from 106g to 80-90 grams approximately.

Well, the first thing to mention is if you're having too much fat in your diet, you are probably eating too much as well.

The reason being that fat is really calorically dense, fat has 9 calories per gram, opposed to protein and carbs which are both at 4 cals/g.

So if you're eating too many fats, chances are you're going to be putting on weight and there is the possibility of dealing with all the issues that come with being overweight/obese:

-hypertension/high blood pressure
-coronary heart disease
-Type 2 diabetes
-gallbladder disease
-sleep apnea/other breathing issues

Too much of saturated and trans fats will also raise your cholesterol levels which leads to an increased risk for heart disease.
