But when it comes to cutting fat, you DON'T have to go hog wild.

A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association reveals too little fat in your diet may actually do more harm than good.
The average American gets 36 percent of calories from fat-- most experts recommend 30 percent or less.
In the study some subjects were put on a 30 percent diet.
Others went lower-- as little as 18 percent calories from fat.
Those with severe fat restrictions saw their blood triglycerides go up and their HDL-- or good cholesterol levels go down.
These are changes that can actually increase the risk of heart disease.
