Heart Healthy Diet Assignment  1. a. Monosaturated fat should be increased in the diet because it could help improve  blood cholesterol levels. The fat that should be decreased is saturated fat because  it increases cholesterol levels. Changing these fat intakes can overall help improve the cholesterol levels. b.
