What are the worst fats, oils, and sweets to have if I have diabetes?

ANSWER

The fats, oils, and sweets you may want to avoid if you have diabetes include anything with artificial trans fat in it. It's bad for your heart. Check the ingredient list for anything that's "partially hydrogenated," even if the label says it has 0 grams of trans fat.

Also avoid big portions of saturated fats, which mainly come from animal products but also are in coconut oil and palm oil. Ask your doctor what your limit should be, especially if you have heart disease as well as diabetes.
