To lower blood cholesterol and LDL and to keep them low for life, you must adopt a new eating style. It means choosing:

  • More good foods high in nutrition to help fight heart disease ( more fruit, vegetables, grains and beans)

  • Choosing the right amounts of foods that are rich in cholesterol, saturated fat and fat (meat, high fat dairy products, eggs).  It doesn't mean giving up all high fat foods, but instead, learning how to fit those foods into your diet. 

Numbers to Remember...

The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) panel of experts issued very clear guidelines. The type of diet recommended depends upon blood cholesterol levels, LDL and the presence of other risk factors:

  • Diet Step 1 is advised for those who have a blood cholesterol below 240, or a LDL level between 130 and 159, and do not have any other risk factors.
     

  • Diet Step 2 is recommended for people with blood cholesterol above 239, or anyone who has a cholesterol level above 200 plus two other risk factors.

Step 1 and Step 2 diets vary in fat and cholesterol amounts. But in each case, making positive diet changes is the first step towards cholesterol reduction. In some cases, drugs may be required in addition to dietary changes.
