Dealing with High Cholesterol with Right Diet
#Cholesterol Test#Weight Gain#Diet and Nutrition

If you are confused about what to eat and what not to eat because your diet has a direct effect on cholesterol, here is a rundown:

- Fat
If you have high cholesterol, you should cut down on saturated fat found in fatty meats and whole milk dairies products like cheese, ice cream, and butter. Also avoid Canola Oil & Other Processed Vegetable Oils, Potato Chips & Other Packaged Foods, Cookies & Other Sugary Treats and Dark Chocolate.

However, there are a number of foods with healthy unsaturated fats that will actually improve your cholesterol. They include fatty fish like tuna and salmon, walnuts, and almonds. But, eat them in moderation as they are high in calories.

- Calories
The importance of counting your calories is often overlooked by people with high cholesterol. No matter how much or how little fat or cholesterol is in a food, its calories still add up. Eating too much of it can lead to weight gain, and that increases your risk of high cholesterol.

- High Cholesterol Foods
Experts have long urged people with high cholesterol to avoid foods loaded with #cholesterol, like egg yolks, shrimp, and organ meats. Also, don't assume that a food labelled "cholesterol-free" is necessarily good for you.

Additionally, Oatmeal, oat bran and high-fiber foods are best foods to control your cholesterol. Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which reduces your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the "bad" cholesterol. Soluble fiber is also found in such foods as kidney beans, apples, pears, barley and prunes. Soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream.
