Dr. Russell Vinik: Eliminate Transfats
(KUTV) We told you last week about the FDA's decision to eliminate transfats from foods. Dr. Russell Vinik from the University of Utah Hospital joined us in studio to talk about why this is an important move.

Beware of fast food:
Transfat is sometimes a part of the oil restaurants use to fry food. A large serving of french fries at some restaurants can contain 5 grams or more of transfat.

What should you eat:
A healthy diet includes some fat, but there's a limit.
Decreasing your transfat intake by 2 percent can reduce your risk of heart disease by 25 percent
In a healthy diet, 25 to 35 percent of your total daily calories can come from fat, but saturated fat should account for less than 10 percent of your total daily calories. Aim for consuming less than 7 percent of your fat calories from saturated fat if you have high levels of LDL cholesterol.
