Fatty acids without double bonds are known as saturated. It needs to gain a hydrogen atom to eliminate the double bond between the two carbons.

That structure is of 'Unsaturated fats''! So in order to make it saturated we need to add more hydrogen atoms and eliminate the double bonds between those two carbons.
