A major source of energy in the diet. All food fats have 9 calories per gram. Fat helps the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, and carotenoids. Some kinds of fats, especially saturated fats, [see definition] may cause blood cholesterol to increase and increase the risk for heart disease. Other fats, such as unsaturated fats [see definition] do not increase blood cholesterol. Fats that are in foods are combinations of monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and saturated fatty acids.

FAT - File Allocation Table
File Allocation Table (DOS) To dream that you are fat, signifies a fortunate change in your life or you may be overindulgent. A more literal interpretation of this dream is your fears of gaining weight. You have an skewed perception of your own image which may stem from low self-esteem. To dream that others are fat, signifies prosperity. *Please see also Obese.Boeotian, Haliver Oil, abounding, abounding in riches, abundant, adipose, adipose tissue, advantageous, affluent, all-sufficing, ample, animal oil, animal oils, aplenty, asinine, balmy, banausic, become overweight, bedizenment, beef tallow, beef-brained, beef-witted, beefy, big, big-bellied, big-rich, bloated, blockish, blocky, blooming, blossoming, blown up, blowzy, blubber, blubbery, bone oil, booming, bosomy, bottlenose oil, bottomless, bounteous, bountiful, bovine, brawny, breadwinning, broad, broad-bodied, bulky, bull, bullnecked, burly, butter, butterfat, buttery, butyraceous, buxom, cerate, champion, choice, cholesterol, chosen, chrismal, chrismatory, chumpish, chunky, clear, cloddish, coarse, cod-liver oil, comfortable, consonant, copious, cowish, crass, cream, deep, dense, diffuse, dilated, disgustingly rich, distended, doegling oil, doltish, dripping, drippings, dropsical, drying oil, dullard, dumb, dumpy, duncical, duncish, duplication, duplication of effort, edematous, effuse, elect, elite, embellishment, enchymatous, engross, epidemic, essential oil, ester, exhaustless, expletive, extravagance, extravagant, exuberant, fair, fatten, fattish, fatty oil, featherbedding, fertile, filling, fish oil, fixed oil, flatulent, flourishing, flower, flowering, flush, frightfully rich, frill, frills, frippery, fruiting, full, full-bodied, gain weight, gainful, galore, gassy, gather flesh, generous, ghee, gingerbread, glyceride, going strong, goose grease, grease, great, gross, halcyon, heavy, heavyset, heavyweight, hefty, hippy, husky, hydrogenated fat, imposing, in full swing, in funds, in good case, in plenty, in quantity, in the money, incrassate, independent, independently rich, independently wealthy, ineducable, inexhaustible, inflated, klutzy, lanolin, lard, lard oil, lardaceous, lardy, lavish, leaden, liberal, lipid, lipin, lipoid, lipoma, loaded, lucrative, lumpish, lusty, luxuriant, luxurious, luxury, made of money, many, margarine, massive, massy, maximal, meaty, mineral oil, moneyed, moneymaking, much, mucoid, mutton tallow, needlessness, negligible, nonesuch, nonpareil, numerous, oafish, off, oil, oleaginous, oleic, oleo, oleomargarine, oleum, oofy, opaque, optimum, opulent, ornamentation, orotund, outside, overabundance, overadornment, overblown, overflow, overflowing, overkill, overlap, overmuch, overplus, overweight, padding, palmy, paragon, paying, payroll padding, pick, pinguefy, piping, plenitudinous, plenteous, plentiful, plenty, pleonasm, plethora, plethoric, podgy, polyunsaturated fat, ponderous, porpoise oil, potbellied, prevailing, prevalent, pride, prime, prize, prodigal, productive, profitable, profuse, profusive, prolixity, prospering, provided for, puffed up, puffy, pug, pugged, pursy, put on weight, queen, quintessence, rampant, redundance, redundancy, remunerative, replete, resounding, retrousse, rich, rich as Croesus, rife, ringing, riotous, rolling in money, roly-poly, rosy, rotund, round, running over, seal oil, sebaceous, sebum, select, shortening, sleek, slender, slick, slight, slippery, small, smooth, snub-nosed, soapy, sonorous, sottish, square, squat, squattish, squatty, stalwart, steroid, stocky, strapping, stubbed, stubby, stumpy, stupid, suet, suety, superabundant, superfluity, superfluousness, superlative, surfeit, surplus, swelled, swollen, tallow, tallowy, tautology, teeming, the best, the best ever, the tops, the very best, thick-bodied, thickset, three-dimensional, thriving, top, top-heavy, tubby, tumid, turgid, turned-up, unctuous, unguent, unguentary, unguentous, unnecessariness, unsaturated fat, unteachable, vegetable oil, ventose, verbosity, vibrant, vigorous, viscous, volatile oil, wallowing in wealth, warm, wealthy, weighty, well provided for, well-fed, well-fixed, well-found, well-furnished, well-heeled, well-off, well-paying, well-provided, well-stocked, well-to-do, whale oil, wholesale, windy, wool fat, worthwhile, wrongheaded
