It has been proven over and over that high cholesterol is directly related to heart disease and its symptoms (which include heart attacks, angina and blood clots).
Cholesterol travels through your blood and is deposited on the artery walls. Over time, if left unchecked, it can completely block your arteries, preventing oxygen from getting to your heart, which often has fatal results.
Here are 13 measures that will help you lower your cholesterol:
1- Avoid saturated fats from foods such as pork, butter, high-fat cheeses and whole milk.
2- Eat more low-fat or “light” foods.
3- Eat more fruits and vegetables, which will help you lower your bad cholesterol.
4- Eat more whole grains and fiber-rich foods.
5- Eat eggs in moderation. Egg yolks have over 250 milligrams of cholesterol. We recommend choosing egg white omelettes or scrambled egg whites for breakfast.
6- Avoid excessive alcohol, carbonated sodas, sweets, and white bread.
7- Control your consumption of foods that produce gas, such as Brussels sprouts or cauliflower .
8- Control your weight, since obesity causes nothing but health problems.
9- Avoid sitting for many hours at a stretch, because this hampers blood flow and can cause blood clots.
10-Learn to control stress and built-up tension.
11- Don\’t smoke.
12- Check your cholesterol every three or four months.
13- Exercise daily.
