California is attempting to control statewide health issues by banning the use of trans-fats in restaurant cooking. Increased levels of trans-fats in foods can lead to weight gain, obesity, and cardio vascular disease."Trans-fat levels in the blood of white adults in the United States fell by 58 percent between 2000 and 2009, which should help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease in the nation", a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study says.

Wal-Mart recently made an announcement that it will now demand the vendors who sell at their store must remove "industrially produced trans fats from all processed foods" sold.  These changes suggest that public health initiatives to increase consumer awareness about the danger that trans fats pose to heart health and to help people reduce their consumption of trans fats have been effective.

Hopefully this enlightenment will enhance peoples eating habits, and therefore helping American's overall healthy living.The issue is that American's dependence on processed foods, which relies on partially hydrated vegetable oils because they are inexpensive and retain a very long shelf life.Those oils are the number one source of trans-fats.

Healthier living can be achieved by removing these processed foods and replacing them with whole foods such as lean proteins , vegetables, whole grains, small amounts of healthy oils such as olive oil, sesame oil, and coconut oil, low-fat dairy and water.  If you can make a few changes toward a cleaner diet monthly, or even every week, then you will find your energy level increase, issues such as acid reflux and stomach disorders may improve, and meeting your weight control goals will be easier.
