What You Should Know

The body converts unused calories into triglycerides which are stored in fat cells. Hormones release the reserved triglycerides when the body needs energy in periods between meals. Ingesting more calories than are burned increases the risk for high triglycerides. This increases the risk for heart disease. Beside regular exercise, a diet of foods low in fat and higher in complex carbohydrates can help prevent this condition.
