But back to our topic. Undeniably most high cholesterol foods are
delicious. This may be the main reason why many people have a hard time cutting down
their high cholesterol foods intake. Those who have high levels of cholesterol have no
choice but to reduce or eliminate such foods from their diet. Listed below are some of
the high cholesterol foods that one should avoid to prevent getting a high level of cholesterol. 1. Eggs. Eggs are considered as a staple breakfast
food, but they also come with high levels of cholesterol. Medical experts, specifically
those in the American Heart Association, recommend that only 300mg of cholesterol should be consumed
every day. Eggs carry 213mg of cholesterol, so if one eats ice cream, cheeseburgers and
other high cholesterol foods for the rest of the day, it isn’t impossible that their
levels of cholesterol would rise. 2. Fast food. Every time a person enters a
fast food restaurant, chances are he or she can hear the sizzling of burger patties on
the grill and see fries being cooked in vats of oil. Those are just 2 signs of the amount
of cholesterol present in each fast food product. Hamburgers can have 85mg to 175 mg of cholesterol,
while French fries have 5g of trans fat and 4g of saturated fat. 3. Ice cream. What’s a meal without dessert?
People can have a slice of chocolate cake, pie, or during hot summer days a scoop of
ice cream. This may come as a surprise and shock to many, but it has been determined
that 1 cup of ice cream has higher amounts of cholesterol than 10 doughnuts and has more
fat than hamburgers. Ice cream is one of the very high cholesterol foods you should try
to avoid. 4. Palm oil. Although food that comes from
plants is considered low in cholesterol, palm oil will increase the levels of cholesterol
in a person’s body. Other plant food products that can increase cholesterol levels are coconuts,
palm kernel oil and coconut oil. 5. Snacks. Those bags of chips people love
snacking on can help increase cholesterol levels. Before picking up a bag of chips,
read the label first. Some snacks have identified the amount of cholesterol and trans fat present
in the product. Other high cholesterol foods that one should
avoid or cut down in one’s diet are food that comes from animals (beef, poultry, etc.),
dairy products, and pastries. Aside from cholesterol-ridden foods, people with high levels of cholesterol
should watch out for food with a lot of trans fat. That’s it! Thank you.
