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!
