CNN Newsource (localmemphis.com) – Cutting around 300 calories a day may be beneficial for your heart, according to a new study published by The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology journal Thursday.

It doesn’t take much to scale back 300 calories. Skipping dessert or intermittent fasting are two options.
