A FAT BUSTER ARTICLE by Damaris Zita
Truth : When you skip a meal, your body slows down your metabolism to compensate for the lack of food. At the next meal, it is common to overeat causing greater total caloric intake than if the meal was not skipped. A better approach is to eat small, frequent meals and snacks to keep your blood sugar balanced.

Battle of the Cholesterols
- LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is usually referred to as “bad” cholesterol because it deposits its cholesterol on the walls of arteries. LDL is also the type of cholesterol that becomes oxidized and damages the lining of your arteries, setting the stage for mineral and fat deposits.
- HDL cholesterol. HDL hangs on to the cholesterol it carries and won’t let it get loose to attach to arterial walls. It may even snatch up additional cholesterol already stuck to a wall, reducing the size of a plaque or buildup. HDL keeps cholesterol in solution and moves it safely throughout the body.
