Lose Weight What you take into your body, has to be processed. Do you eat junk food? Do you know that “trans fats” common to chips, snacks and processed food will interfere with your good cholesterol (HDL). The wrong types of fats cause weight gain and set up a sluggish metabolism. Losing weight makes your body more efficient in using its fuel, i.e., metabolizing fats. Very often simply losing 15 lbs or more will change your cholesterol numbers!
Good Fats vs Bad Fats Are you FATPHOBIC? Fats are not the enemy when it comes to cholesterol. Your body needs a certain amount of fat and when you restrict healthy fats, your body actually produces more cholesterol to meet the needs of your body! Not to mention there are many vitamins and minerals that need fat for absorption and utilization such as Vitamins A, D, E and K. Walnuts, avocados, olive and coconut oil actually are good fats! Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated and soy oils, found in processed foods, are bad fats contributing more to heart disease than the saturated fats in meats, eggs and cheese.

Eat Fiber It’s no secret that vegetarians have lower cholesterol levels and lower heart disease rates than meat eaters. That’s in part because vegetarians consume so much fiber, which is found exclusively in plant foods–fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans. Fiber comes in two forms: soluble and insoluble. The soluble kind appears to pack the greatest cholesterol-lowering punch. Research has shown that consuming about 15 g of soluble fiber a day can lower LDL cholesterol by 5 to 10 percent. It works by binding with cholesterol-containing bile acids in the intestines and escorting them out of the body. A specific kind of soluble fiber, pectin, not only lowers cholesterol but also helps curb overeating by slowing the digestive process. An apple a day really will keep the doctor away! Coincidentally, foods high in fiber tend to be low in saturated fat and cholesterol, as well as calories.
