This article is totally right on, although there will be some people that won't agree.
The less processed foods a person eats, and the more whole foods he eats the way God made them, he will be better off in the long run. Too many carbs, including the good carbs, will raise trigs just as much as sugar will unless one is a runner or a weight lifter to burn off those extra calories which will definitely clog your arteries because it is stored as fat; not to mention overloading the liver.
More fruits, veggies, lots of water, and eating good fats as oppose to transfats, and lean meats.
My hubby & I just don't eat red meat any more but maybe one a year if that much. Rahter we eat salmon, tilapia, shrimp, chicken & turkey; some pork but not much.
And we also do Chobani yogurt and skim milk as well.
