Hello and welcome to HealthiNation. I’m
Sharon Richter, registered dietitian. Having high cholesterol can lead to a number of problems,
including heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. By knowing whether you’re at risk
and taking action, you can lower your cholesterol and live a healthier life. In this segment, I’ll show you the foods
you’ll need to limit if you have high cholesterol and offer you some easy, healthy alternatives
that are satisfying and taste great. Just because you have high cholesterol doesn’t
mean you’re stuck eating bland foods and no meats. In fact, there are some really great
alternatives to the foods you should be limiting. First, let’s talk about cholesterol for
a moment. It’s a fat-like substance that’s made inside our bodies. It’s also in all
the foods we eat. When we add too much of it from outside sources with lots of fat,
our cholesterol level s start to rise. If you have high cholesterol, changes in your
diet are usually the first priority. You’ll need to limit some foods and I say here limit
because you don’t have to cut everything about your diet entirely. Instead you have
to cut back and eat these foods on an occasional basis. So the foods that you should limit
are obviously high in cholesterol. These include liver and other organ meats, egg yolks, full-fat
dairy products such as milk, cheese, sour cream, ice cream just to name a few. There
are different kinds of fats and the ones to avoid are saturated fats. Saturated fats are
in the following foods: In butter and in lard;
In processed meats such as sausage, hot dogs, bologna, and salami;
Untrimmed red meats like beef; In fried foods;
And in some poultry such as goose and duck.

  1. Please!

    With all due respect, this low fat / low cholesterol "heart-healthy" diet is not the answer.
    This is traditional dietary advice and is not consistent with recent independent research.

     You may find this shocking, but there is nothing wrong with eating saturated fats and cholesterol and even having higher LDL – if it's large particle LDL and you also have high HDL and low triglycerides.

    Eat healthy anti-inflammatory Omega 3 oils and grass fed dairy, poultry, eggs and meats. Use olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil and grass fed butter. Ditch the inflammatory Omega 6 margarine, corn oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, etc. Eat as many pasture raised eggs, grass fed butter, healthy wild caught fish and grass fed meats as you want. Eliminate sugar and refined carbohydrates. That means avoid or eliminate wheat, and eat modest quantities of rice. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables, but avoid juices which are high in sugar.

    Very few people should be on cholesterol lowering medications. Take vitamin D3, C, E and Niacin supplements and try to minimize exposure to chlorine and chloramines in your drinking water – they are strong oxidants and oxidize small dense LDL particles creating atherosclerotic plaque.

    Within 5 years everything we have been told in America about nutrition will be reversed – because we've all been conned over the last 40 years. Research this on your own and you will discover the truth – and it's pretty shocking.

  5. Why are 90% of dieticians and doctors so out of touch with reality and the latest research? Perhaps it's because they are controlled by the statin and the sugar industry that makes billions out of keeping people fat and sick.
