Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's New Year's resolution is to take care of your heart.

The body builder turned actor turned politician signed a bill outlawing trans fat in July 2008. So starting Jan. 1 all California restaurants will be required to block use of the artery-clogging ingredient added to foods.

Bakeries will have until Jan. 1, 2011.
