These authors also note that the Mediterranean diet — one that is high in fat — actually improves heart health, along with mild to moderate exercise and decreased stress.

They are not talking about trans fat, which has been shown to be unhealthy.

Saturated fats are in foods like meat and dairy products.

You can read about the research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.
