A diet that's low in cholesterol, saturated fats, and trans fat can help improve blood cholesterol levels. To lessen the fats in your diet, you don't have to give up your favorite meals. You just have to make better choices.
Making changes in your diet can make a difference. Try the following:
Instead of: Fried eggs, Try: An egg-white omelet. All the cholesterol in eggs is found in the yolks. In recipes, replace each whole egg with 2 egg whites. When baking, add a little vegetable oil for a moister consistency.
Instead of: Meat lasagna, Try: Vegetable lasagna. Most saturated fat comes from animal sources, including meat and dairy products. So use reduced-fat cheese as well.
Instead of: A pan-fried burger, Try: A grilled burger. Start with lean ground beef. Cook on a rack to let the fat drip away. Or get rid of saturated fat completely by grilling a portobello mushroom instead of a meat burger.
Instead of: Deep-fried chicken, Try: Baked chicken
