Best Diet To Lower Cholesterol

A study from Belgium shows that patients were able to lower their high blood cholesterol levels only 3.5 percent after receiving instructions from their physicians (1). Those doctors don't know how to teach nutrition.

With proper instruction on restricting total fat, saturated fat and calories, you should expect to reduce high blood cholesterol levels by at least 30 percent (2). The diet should be loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber, plant sterols and the omega-3 and monounsaturated fatty acids (3). Cholesterol-lowering drugs will lower cholesterol further(4).

A cholesterol lowering diet should restrict saturated fat in meat, chicken, diary products and tropical oils; added fats from any source, and flour in bakery products and pasta. The diet should be loaded with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans; omega-3 sources such as flaxseeds, nuts, leafy greens and deep water fish; and monounsaturated fat sources such as olives.
