Cholesterol and Diet
In order to have optiumum health and to have lower cardiovascular risk it is advisable to keep our cholesterol up to 200mg/dL.
Your daily diet can help in most cases to lower your cholasterol, nevertheless this is not always the case when hypercholesterolemia is herreditary. With our diet, in order to achive lower values of cholesterol we need to be careful not only to diminish foods that elevate cholesterol levels, but also we need to eat more of those foods that help your body to lower cholesterol. To be more precise, we need to avoid foods with high fat content especialy animal fat, so we prefer
-Skim milk/yoghurt and cheese with about 5-15% fat content.
-Meat with the lowest amount of fat, without skin e.g. it is preferable to choose fillet or chicken breast.
Moreover, we need to eat red meat just once per week or once every fortnight (according to our blood test and our iron levels).
