I watch my cholesterol because my birth parents must have a history of bad cholesterol and I am ganing that. I went to the doctor and she said that one of my cholesterol levels is okay, but the “bad” is still high.

What do you eat to help with your Cholesterol?

    My husband no longer needs meds for his cholesterol since drinking Shakeology. That is priceless.

    Food rich in fiber (whole grains, whole fruit, legumes, vegetables). Fat restriction is not as important, but cut down on food rich in cholesterol and trans-fat (hydrogenated fat, margarine, cookies, cakes, crackers). You may increase monounsaturated fat intake (olive oi, canola oil, nuts).

    but cut down on food rich in cholesterol

    That foods rich in cholesterol cause blood cholesterol has been exposed, many times over, as a complete myth.

    I eat a lot of fat. (I actually cycle it: lean protein + starchy carbs post work out, fatty stuff +low carb veggies whenever else) and yes, I lowered my bad levels and raised my good ones!

    INFLAMMATION is the main cause of build up. So that's why I stay away from inflammatory grain, rancid vegetable oils, sugar, and artificial sweetners, etc.
