Food to Help Reduce Your Cholesterol Level

Oatmeal and Fruit

If you have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, you may want to take a look at your diet and see if you can change some of your eating habits.  We need some fat in our diet, but we want to eat monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. There is never any benefit in eating saturated and trans fats.  Looking on your food labels will usually let you know what amount of fat is in the product, but you need to take it one step further and read the label to see which fats are in it.  The total fat count doesn’t always help if you are trying to avoid (and I hope you are) saturated and trans fats.  You can never go wrong if you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables instead of chips and pastries.  Why not try mustard instead of mayo on your sandwich or add sliced avocado.  Sprinkle some ground flax seed on your cereal or oatmeal for your omega 3.  Be creative and have fun and you may find that eating healthy is really not that hard.  Check the article below for more information on how to eat better to beat high cholesterol…
