Tips To Lower Your Cholesterol

2 of 15

Follow a Low-Fat Diet

Just as some foods increase cholesterol, others help lower it. Foods you should eat include:

  • Fruits and vegetables: 8–10 daily servings, especially high-fiber items such as beans and peas
  • Good fat” fish (i.e. salmon): 2 or more servings per week
  • Whole grains: 6 or more daily servings
  • Nuts and seeds: 4–5 servings per week
  • Nonfat and low-fat dairy: 2–3 daily servings
  • Lean meat and poultry without skin: 5–6 ounces daily
  • Unsaturated vegetable oils: including canola, corn, olive, safflower, and soybean oils (but limit the amount of margarines and spreads made from them)
