Low Cholesterol Menu - A Great Way To Reduce Cholesterol

Jul 15, 2008
We all live very busy lives, many of us opt for eating fast food rather than proper meals because it is easier. We do not stop to think of the consequences that our actions lead.

It is, however, worthwhile considering switching to a low cholesterol menu in a bid to maintain proper health.

Fast Foods Are Not A Good Idea When Trying To Lower Cholesterol

It is possible to try and find a low cholesterol menu that has fast foods in it but it will still contain a higher amount of trans fats that will only increase your weight and in the end increase the amount of cholesterol in your body.

You would be better off designing your own low cholesterol menu and this will help you in regards to improving your health. A few ingredients to start off with would be the following:
. Fruit, and pure Fruit juices (Exception to, being avocados). Fruit bars with no added fat nor added nuts appear fine.
. Vegetables and Vegetable juices - steamed, boiled, raw. Can be cooked with a small spray of cooking oil in a pan etc. It's the fat you add to them that's the problem.
. Breakfast Cereal products except those with added ingredients for eaxample corn flakes are fine, but with nuts are not fine. Added fruit is fine. Cereal eaten as is or mixed with skim milk or water.
. Baked beans.
. Spaghetti in tomato sauce.
. Pasta.
. Gnocchi (potato or pumpkin).
. Egg noodles,
. White rice. Brown Rice. Barley. Rice cakes or slices
. Bread, Crisp bread, Pita - lebanese, Filo pastry,
. No fat glace or no fat frosting,
. Sauces ( but not tartare ), Light Salad dressing, No fat mayonnaise.
. Spreads: vegemite, promite, marmite, honey, jam, marmalade, fish paste are fine.
. Soups - canned and packet varieties ( but not creamed, nor ones mixed with whole milk ), any that are fat free.
. Plain popcorn (no added fat nor oil), jelly desserts.
. Most non-alcohol beverages and drinks are fine (except those that have milk or ice cream added)
. Non fat milk or skim milk. Low fat soy drinks. Yacult. Non fat or skim yoghurts. 99% fat free cheese.
. Gelati - non milk. Fruit Ice confections - non-milk types.
. Cheddar cheese - for some reason still unknown, does not appear to increase cholestrol, even though it should!
. Egg White.
. Cooking oil spray - 1 second spray - but only because very little oil is used in a 1 second spray. So you still need to watch how much you spray on.
. Biscuits : Plain cracker biscuits, Ginger Nut, Marie - but always check the label to make sure.
. Lollies: Sugar and or gelatine one, like jubes, snakes - but the calorie count is high.
Remember though, that on a low cholesterol diet, you still have to monitor the size - nearly everything has some calories ( kilojoules).These foods can be eaten freely ( but always check food composition to make sure as, some people or companies may have different ingredients in their food)

You need to follow your low cholesterol menu by drinking adequate amounts of water which not only makes you feel full, but also helps to fight off bad cholesterol as well.

You can find places online that will provide recipes for your low cholesterol menu if you have trouble creating your own. When you have made the change you will see a difference in your body, you will find noticeable improvement in your immune system and your body too will feel a lot better.
