Saturated fat

Saturated fat can increase both your total cholesterol and your “lousy cholesterol” levels. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends limiting saturated fat intake to less than 10 percent of your total calories. This is especially important for those with diabetes who are already at increased risk for heart disease.
