Trans Fat

Hi Ladies,
Don't do it! Don't eat Trans fat! It is the worst fat that you could eat. It lowers your good cholesterol (HDL) and raises your bad cholesterol (LDL.) It is trouble for your heart and arteries. READ labels. Just because a nutrition label says 0 trans fat does not mean that it is so. If a food has less than 0.5 grams of trans fat it is allowed to say 0 trans fat. If you eat multiple portions like that throughout the day then you are eating a lot of trans fat. Trans fats are used to keep processed foods from spoiling. You can find trans fats in cookies, crackers, cakes, fried foods such as french fries and donuts, etc. Ladies if the label says "hydrogenated" or "partially hydrogenated" oil this is a bad thing! "Fully" or "completely" hydrogenated does not contain trans fat. We must not clog our arteries. Please eat right to stay healthy. I know that it is not easy but there are healthy choices that we can make before we sit down to eat.........Talk soon.......Elyse Rose
