    Inspire yourself by concentrating on the gain in weight-loss, such as exerting energy to improve health. You can achieve this in reducing intake of saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol content of your diet, substituting monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (as canola oil, olive oil or liquid margarine) for saturated fats. More so, fatty fishes high in omega-3 fatty acids may be use in place for meats high in saturated fat. Fishes such as mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon contain high omega-3 fatty acids.
    Alcohol contain elevated amount of calories and has a special potent effect on triglycerides. Even a little amounts of alcohol can elevate triglyceride levels.
    Set a target of at least 30 minutes of moderate to intensive physical activity on four to six days each week. Regular exercise can enhance your cholesterol to a healthy level.

    Which is it?

    And your website has absolutely no information about who you are or what the bases is of the "information" that you post.
