... It's not fat though that really influences triglycerides, it's carb intake. But a lot of 'bad for you foods' tend to be high in both bad fats and sugars, so avoiding junk food will help a lot. It's really not that difficult to change your eating patterns either. At first, it may seem like a shock, but you just sort of get used to it. Eat some blueberries or a healthy snack... (5 replies)
