Triglycerides are naturally occurring fats (called “lipids”) in your bloodstream. You’ve probably heard of two of them already: the “LDL” (Low Density Lipoproteins) and the “HDL” (High Density Lipoproteins).
LDL is called the “bad” lipid.
A high level of LDL lipids can have as much as or greater impact on your heart’s health as cholesterol. In fact, high LDL triglycerides account for more heart attacks and strokes than cholesterol (The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition Vol. 86: 943-49).
You could take drugs to lower LDL levels.
Because of the serious side effects of drugs that lower triglycerides, the American Heart Association recommends that medications should only be considered after every natural avenue for lowering triglycerides has been exhausted.
HDL is called the “good” lipid.
HDL has been shown to actively protect your heart. So it makes sense to take steps to increase the levels of HDL and lower the levels of LDL.
Increasing your HDL and lowering your LDL triglycerides, then, is just good business. One of the ways to do that is to alter your diet to eliminate sugars.
That’s right, the culprit that causes increased levels of LDL is sugar. And the one place that sugars hide are in foods high in carbohydrates(“Carbs”).
Carbs are broken down by the body into glucose that is easily and readily absorbed into the bloodstream, where it raises your blood sugar levels and increases your LDL levels. Almost immediately when you eat them. Glucose is the only way you body can use sugar. Glucose is vital for life. But like most things, too much of a good thing can be a problem.
Carbohydrates are found in foods like breads, pasta, white rice, and starchy foods like potatoes, corn, beans and peas.
Your body needs complex carbohydrates to generate the energy you need to live, so I’m not suggesting that you eliminate these foods. Rather, I’m suggesting that you limit how much you eat. Portion control is important to good health.
The American Diabetes Association has established general guidelines for how much carbohydrates you should add to your diet. They recommend that a single serving of complex carbohydrates is 15 grams. That’s equivalent to 1 slice of white bread, ½ cup of cut corn, or ¼ of a large potato, or 2 bananas.
To illustrate, sweet potatoes are generally viewed as more healthy than regular potatoes. But a ½ cup of sweet potato holds 21 grams of carbohydrates, or almost 1 ½ times the amount you should eat in a single serving.
Beans are not the answer. Lentils are right down there with sweet potatoes.
Like Mexican foods? 1– 6 inch flour tortilla has as many carbs as a single slice of white bread!
But I have good news!
