Foods High in Cholesterol
Eating a heart-healthy diet is not only about cutting back on high cholesterol foods; it's also about limiting foods high in saturated fats and trans fat. Eating smart begins by learning how to read food labels and being aware of different types of fat and cholesterol in foods you eat.
If a heart-healthy diet does not lower cholesterol enough, your healthcare provider may recommend increasing your soluble fiber intake and/or adding other cholesterol-lowering food products to your diet.
