Watch For Trans Fat!

Posted by nutritionist 03/07/2014 0 Comment(s) healthy lifestyle,

Trans fat can make food taste good, last longer on grocery-store shelves, but it is hazardous to your heart. It can raise your bad (LDL) cholesterol levels, lower the good (HDL) cholesterol levels and increases the risk of developing heart disease and stroke.  Trans fats can be found in many foods, especially in fried foods like french fries and doughnuts, and baked goods including pastries, pie crusts, biscuits, pizza dough, cookies,  stick margarines and shortenings.
