- The major dietary causes of high cholesterol levels are saturated and trans fats, coconut and palm oil, fatty meats like most beef and pork cold cuts, organ meats like liver, red meat, egg yolks, full-fat dairy products, and fast foods like hamburgers, fried chicken, and tacos (http://www.webmd.com/cholesterol-management/foods-to-avoid-for-high-cholesterol ).
If your diet gave you high cholesterol, it can lower it, too. It's easy to change what you should eat to lower your cholesterol and other fats floating through your bloodstream. Making these changes will lower the bad cholesterol and raise the good one (HDL-cholesterol). Doing this requires a two-pronged strategy.
(1) What to include. Look for foods that include soluble fiber, which binds cholesterol in the digestive system and drags it out of the body before it gets into circulation. Also, healthy polyunsaturated fats like omega-3s and omega-6s directly lower cholesterol. The Nutrient Shake contains soluble fiber and healthy fats (omega-3s and omega-6s).
(2) What to avoid. Cut back on foods that boost cholesterol. Here are four things you can do: limit saturated fat intake; avoid trans fats; try to achieve a healthy body weight; and get some physical activity (http://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/11-foods-that-lower-cholesterol ).
The Nutrient Shake is ideal for someone with high cholesterol levels. The Nutrient Shake is low in saturated fats, contains no trans fats, and foods rich in essential nutrients have been shown to promote weight loss (http://www.fasebj.org/content/29/8/3287.full?sid=8469c0f7-28cc-49a3-87ab-924d0fb469ca ; http://crescopublications.org/pdf/JFTNS/JFTNS-2-006.pdf ).
