Tips for a Cholesterol Conscious Diet

  • Base your food intake on variety.
  • Avoid fried foods. Instead, try to eat foods that are steamed or grilled.
  • Use vegetable oils rather than animal based fats; for example, try low fat margarine instead of butter and sunflower oil for cooking.
  • Pay attention to the fat content in meats, cheese, nuts, etc. Avoid foods that are high in cholesterol such as meats and sausages.
  • Limit egg yolk consumption to 2-3 per week.
  • Balance out your diet by eating vegetables, leafy greens, whole grains and fruits everyday.
  • Reduce your intake of sugar. Chocolate, cookies, pies and other sweets contain a high level of sugar and hidden fat.
  • Spice your food with herbs rather than salt.
  • Try to eat fish at least once or twice per week.
  • Maintain high consumption of liquids.
  • Follow the guidelines of the National Cholesterol Education Program.
  • For any additional questions consult your physician.
