Foods to Avoid for High Cholesterol
Eating a heart-healthy diet is not only about knowing which foods to avoid; 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 you have high cholesterol, and 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.
