Foods like cheese, butter, sausage,
and desserts may taste good to you, but they
can have a lot of
saturated fat and cholesterol. Eating too much of
these unhealthy fats could lead to
high cholesterol and heart disease.
Start with small changes first. Use
heart-healthy olive or canola oil instead of butter for cooking. Drink fat-free
or low-fat milk instead of 2% milk or whole milk.
Pick leaner cuts of meat.
