Drink Less Alcohol
If you have high triglycerides, alcohol should be considered a rare treat — if you indulge at all, since even small amounts of alcohol can increase triglyceride levels. In sensitive individuals, just one drink can send triglycerides soaring. When you're out at social occasions, consider ordering a flavorful spritzer made with seltzer water and a small splash of fruit juice. It'll be healthier for you — and no one has to know that there isn't any alcohol in it.
