Clean Up Your Diet and Lose Weight (Page 5)

So long, saturated fats (from cheese).

Why? Most experts agree that saturated fats raise levels of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in the blood, which can damage the heart and arteries.
How? I'll give up cheese. (Remember, this is just for a week!) It is, by far, the biggest source of saturated fat in my diet, since I don’t eat much butter or meat or many fried foods and I drink low-fat milk. I’ll use healthy fats in place of cheese (avocado in my burritos and almond butter on my toast) to help keep me satisfied.
