READER'S COMMENT:
"you may want to explain the math further on the saturated fat section. you have it listed as 7% of 2000 calorie diet which comes to 140 calories this is 15.5 grams by dividing by 9 (9 calories for each gram of fat) "

Exercise

Regular physical activity can help lower triglycerides and LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol levels, as well as help you to maintain (or lose) weight. Try to get at least 30 minutes of activity on most, if not all, days.
