arteries. This build up increases the chance
that you will have heart disease. LDL
cholesterol goals vary and are based on
individual risk factors. Discuss your
individual goal with your provider.
Limit saturated fat, dietary cholesterol
and avoid trans-fat. Saturated fat is found
in fatty meats such as beef and pork, whole
milk, cheese, heavy cream, coconut oil,
butter, fried foods, egg yolks and baked
goods. Trans fat is found in shortening, stick
margarine, frozen pizzas and donuts. Many
of the foods rich in saturated and trans fats
are also high in dietary cholesterol. Some
helpful tips to lower saturated fats, trans fat,
and cholesterol are:
• Eat no more than 6 ounces of lean
meats or poultry or fish each day.
• Choose skim or low-fat dairy
products (milk, cheese, yogurt, ice

avocado) instead of solid fats (butter,
lard, shortening, coconut and palm

your diet.

hydrogenated oils.

also called “unsaturated fats” which can help
lower LDL cholesterol. Omega-3 fats are
also healthy fats and are often called
“polyunsaturated fats.” These are better at
lowering LDL cholesterol. To increase
healthy fats, try:

• To use avocados or nut butters for
spreads or toppings.

avocado, peanut, soybean, corn, or
safflower oils.

mackerel, herring, lake trout,
sardines and albacore tuna 2 times
per week.

as walnuts, almonds, peanuts,
sunflower seeds, flax seeds, or chia

tempeh, and edamame more often.

are high in fiber helps in many ways besides
lowering LDL cholesterol. Foods that are
high in soluble fiber are better at lowering

the amount of fiber in your diet. This

constipation, and diarrhea. A few helpful
tips to increase the fiber in your diet are:
• Eat 2-4 servings of fruit and 2-4
servings of vegetables per day.
• Make most of your grains. (Whole
grains such as wheat, barley, brown
rice, wild rice, quinoa, oatmeal, or
