Tips for High Cholesterol

Ultimately, a diet rich in whole, unprocessed, organic fruits, vegetables and nuts will solve high cholesterol problems. 

Soluble fiber binds cholesterol and its precursors in the digestive system and drags them out of the body before they get into circulation. Polyunsaturated fats directly lower LDL. Plant sterols and stanols block the body from absorbing cholesterol.

Incorporate the following foods into your daily diet to target your high cholesterol with naturally healing whole foods. 

FOODS RICH IN SOLUBLE FIBER:

Oats

Garbanzo Beans

Lentils

Black-eyed peas

Apples

Green leafy vegetables

Salmon

Walnuts

Almonds

Chia Seeds

Avocado

Garlic

Spinach

Green Tea

Oranges

Asparagus

Blueberries

Olive Oil

Flaxseed

THINGS TO AVOID:

Processed foods – crackers, cookies, cakes, muffins, processed meats, frozen dinners, breads, cereals, almost everything pre-packaged. These foods contain inflammatory oils, added preservatives and colorings and typically inflammation causing flours and sweeteners.
Fried foods
Heavy meats – steaks, bologna, salami, red meats
Dairy – milk, cheese, yogurt (even seemingly healthy kinds), eggs (until cholesterol is under control)
To health and happiness,
