You list beans as good if you have high triglycerides, why this is actually not true.

My gender and age has nothing to do with my question it has to do with you giving wrong information. I learned a long time ago with high triglycerides you cut all pork and beans

Hi, Vivian. I guess you're talking about the post at https://qa.healthtopquestions.com/111251/what-foods-lower-triglycerides. Right?

Hi Vivian

High blood triglycerides are a type of lipid disorder, or dyslipidemia. 

After you eat,  the excess calories will be converted triglycerides and stay in your fat cells, waiting to be used for energy later.

Having too many triglycerides in your blood can increase your risk of heart disease.

According to NIH (National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute), to lower your blood triglycerides levels through diet, you need to include foods rich in fiber and avoid foods high in saturated or trans fats. 

The following is the related figures of one kind of beans:

Beans, snap, green, raw / 100g
Fiber, total dietary2.7g
Total lipid (fat)0.22g
Fatty acids, total saturated0.05g
Fatty acids, total trans0g

From the above figures, we can see that beans actually fall into the category of foods that are rich in fiber and low in saturated and trans fat.

Thus, beans are actually good to lower your triglycerides levels.

Beans are good, baked beans with sugar or pork aren't. You'd stay away from beans with fat and added sugar, see the problem is the added sugar and fat, not the beans. Actually, beans, lentils, peas are all good source of fiber with a little bit seasoning. Salt, sugar, cream are the killers.
All veggie are good against cholesterol, triglycerides. Beans are good, fried beans are not. I love friend beans, they taste so good ... Oh, wait a second, what happened to my belly?

OH NO...Cellulite!!!
My mom loves beans, she eats them 4-5 times a week, she's healthy, energetic, and she looks at least 10 years younger than her peers.
