Lower Your Cholesterol for Better Heart Health

Affectionate embrace between a granddaughter and her elderly grandma

A common misconception about cholesterol-lowering foods is that they can cure your high cholesterol.  However, that is far from the case. For example, if you eat a bowl of almonds and then a bucket of fried chicken hours later, your cholesterol will still be high.  It is important to understand the need to replace high-cholesterol foods with healthier alternatives, keeping in mind moderation. Eating too much food, even if it is healthy, can increase your waistline due to caloric intake.  Weight gain is also a contributing factor when it comes to high cholesterol levels.

You don’t need to tackle your cholesterol problem alone.  Seek support from friends and family to help you adopt a healthy lifestyle, ask and work with your doctor about your cholesterol levels, and remember that your genetics help play a role in cholesterol levels as well!
