People with high blood triglycerides are bombarded with nutrition information every day. Many have tried different diets including a low-fat diet with little or no success. In this book, Yuchi Yang, a registered dietitian, provides four simple steps to lowering your blood triglycerides:
Step 1: Limit processed sugar to 6 teaspoons.
Step 2: Eat the right amount of carbohydrates.
Step 3: Consume oils and fats in moderation.
Step 4: Have an adequate amount of dietary fiber.
This book is designed as a workbook that you can refer to and record your success. Each step starts with some facts and ends with a tool that you can use to track your progress. There are relevant tools and tables included in this book. When you make your own meal plan, you can refer back to the tables and examples. In addition, this book provides answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. For example: Are smoothies healthy? How much oil do you need? What is a good ratio of different fats?
