When you eat primarily processed foods which contain high amounts of any type of bad fats, your blood becomes contaminated and mixed with small fat droplets. Blood, as you know is a liquid/water compound, and as with blood, anything that contains water, does not mix with fat very well. Our bodies however has certain ways to separate and filter the fat out of the blood. There are certain types of fat, known as soft fats, that will travel in and out of your blood stream quite easily, without sticking to the walls. Then there are the similar droplets of hard fats, which are laced with cholesterol, that are not as easy to get rid of.
What Are The Hard Fats
This bad wax-like cholesterol build up, combined with the hard fat particles, will begin to collect in these targeted areas. When combined together, they will then eventually begin to form “scales” inside the artery walls. This is what the doctors refer to as plaque buildup, which tends to accumulate and clog up the flow of blood in the arteries.
So once where the blood was able to flow freely, slowly but surely, it will become narrower and narrower. At some point, this blood flow may eventually stop altogether, much like the insides of the water pipe. A piece of fat plaque will eventually build up to be large enough to completely plug up the artery. If this happens in the blood vessels, it is referred to as coronary thrombosis, which ultimately as a result of the plaque, may lead to a coronary heart attack.
There is a way that you will be able to prevent this, or slow down the build up and formation of plaque, by balancing or eliminating the intake of these harmful hard fats. So this requires cutting down on the hard fats that you eat, and replacing them with the soft fats. You will eventually feel a lot healthier and fitter, and also lose weight at the same time.
