    What's the Limit?

    There are no recommended guidelines in Malaysia but the American HeartMeridian Health Protocol Association (AHA) proposes limiting the amount of trans fat you eat to less than one percent of your total daily calories. That means if you need 2,000 calories a day, no more than 20 of those should come from trans fat. That's less than two grams of trans fat a day. Given the amount of naturally occurring trans fat you probably eat every day, this leaves virtually no room at all for industrially manufactured it.

    The Healthy Alternative

    Stick to a diet containing a variety of fruits, vegetables and grains, especially whole-grain products; fat-free and low-fat dairy products; poultry, and lean meats; and fish, preferably oily fish like salmon, at least twice a week. And when it comes to cooking these products, plump for oils that have monounsaturated fats - olive, peanut and canola oils. Ensure you don't recycle these oils and don't cook your food with oils at temperatures that are too high and for prolonged period.

    A lot of experts agree that the key to eating healthy is the right mix of variety, balance and moderation. As a general rule that means eating a variety of different proteins and avoiding too much of any one single nutrient and getting too many calories.

    The whole life starts with the breakfast. We will never put enough emphasis that breakfast is often called the most important meal to start the day, like the ones Kay's Naturals is offering. It should be obvious: when you spend the remaining hours up to the lunch with an empty stomach, with no food or liquid, your blood sugar is usually low, your body is dehydrated, and you have no energy and it is definitively the time for Better Balance snacks!

    Besides giving you the necessary nutrients that you need to have a good start for the whole day, eating the gluten-free protein breakfast from Kay's Naturals might help you lose weight. People that skip breakfast tend to overeat before lunch time and during the day. And those breaks are generally done with what people call junk food: unhealthy and high-caloric foods, hence helping you gaining unnecessary weight that will pose problems in the future. Excess weight will put you at risk for heart disease and high blood pressure on top of an increased risk of Type II diabetes.
