Get More Omega–3s
Not all fat is bad fat. While you're working on reducing the amount of saturated and trans fats in your diet, you should also focus on increasing healthy omega–3 fats. Omega–3s
are actually good for your heart and especially effective at lowering triglyceride levels. I recommend eating at least two servings of omega–3–rich fish, such as wild salmon
, herring, mackerel (though not king), sardines, rainbow trout, or even Pacific oysters, each week. Also, speak with your doctor about incorporating fish oil supplements into your routine.
