Lower High Cholesterol

If you have high cholesterol then chances are you’re trying to change the way you eat. And now’s the time to do it!

Your cholesterol level has a lot to do with your risk of getting heart disease. Diet and nutrition can be the first defenses. I suggest you cut cholesterol through a combination of foods that help lower bad cholesterol. Of course, be sure to talk to your doctor first.

Eat more viscous fiber. This is a sticky type of fiber and is found in oats, barley, beans and vegetables like okra and eggplants.

Recent studies have proven that soy helps lower cholesterol levels. So look for soy protein and eat vegetarian with a little bit of tofu once a week – it will really make a difference.

Finally, go nuts! Eat a variety of nuts, including walnuts (which have the most omega-3 fatty acids) everyday.
