Having high cholesterol can lead to a number of problems, including heart disease, heart attack and strokes. While high cholesterol can be inherited from your family, it can also be the result of poor food choices. Here are some simple ways you can help to lower your cholesterol through healthful eating.
Foods to Limit
If you have high cholesterol, you don't need to completely avoid certain foods. Rather you should learn to limit the amount you eat because they are naturally high in cholesterol and/or saturated and trans fat. These foods include:
Liver and other organ meats
Full-fat dairy products, such as milks, cheeses, sour cream and ice cream
Butter and lard
Processed meats such as sausages, hot dogs, bologna and salami
Untrimmed red meats
Some poultry, such as goose and duck
Prepared and highly processed cakes, pies, cookies, etc.
