My wife told me that eating smoking food increases triglycerides. Has anyone else been told this? If this is true, my new smoker is going bye bye. If this is not true, I need to debunk this ASAP.
Don't panic.. I'm collecting and planning on taking all the triglycerides with me...Triglycerides are fat. Eating lots of tranfat or saturated fats will raise your levels. As well as high alcohol consumption or lots of carbs. You're in just as much or more eating fried chicken and drinking a sixer on a regular basis. Moderation is the key. Eating fatty cuts of pork or beef everyday of the week is going to raise your risk. No matter how you heat it. Serve it with a salad or grilled veggies instead of potatoes or mac n cheese. Of course, I guess one could say that smoked meat is so good that it leads to overeating which will always raise your risk.
Happy hitting and don't throw away your smoker.
LOL---Nice catch Case!!I am so glad I eat "Smoked" food and not "Smoking" food!!!! Had me worried. I usually try and wait until my food has quit "Smoking" before eating it, therefore no issues for me!!!!
