Cholesterol is like the Capitalism vs. Populism
There is good cholesterol (HDL) and there is bad cholesterol (LDL)
The liver produces about 80% of the body’s cholesterol and the rest comes from dietary sources like meat, poultry, eggs, fish, and dairy products.
To lower bad cholesterol levels it is important to consider a healthy diet, which includes:
- 10 servings (fruits and vegetables) per day
- Include whole grains in your diet (preferably organic)
- Increase consumption of fish which contains Omega 3 fatty acids
- NUTS! Eat almonds, macadamias, and pistachios. Handful per day max as they are high in calories.
- Exercise at least 4 times per week (minimum 45 minutes per workout).
- Forget about fried food until your cholesterol regulates; then you could eat fried food once per week!
