Cholestrol

Cholesterol is a waxy substance which is made in the body by the liver but is also found in some foods. It plays a vital role in how every cell works and is also needed to make Vitamin D, some hormones and bile for digestion. However, too much cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of getting heart and circulatory disorder

Cholesterol is carried in the blood attached to proteins called lipoproteins. There are two main forms, LDL (low density lipoprotein) and HDL (high density lipoprotein). LDL cholesterol is often referred to as bad cholesterol because too much is unhealthy. HDL is often referred to as "good cholesterol" because it is protective. Knowing your levels of these can help explain your risk of heart disorder. Your doctor should be able to tell you your levels of "good" and "bad" cholesterol

Causes of High cholesterol

  • Low intake of foods containing healthy, protective fats - including small amounts (about two teaspoons) of unsaturated spreads or oils or a small handful of nuts or seeds increases your intake of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. These fats tend to increase the HDL cholesterol in your blood.
  • Saturated fats and trans-fats - high cholesterol is mainly caused by eating foods high in saturated fats and trans-fats. Foods high in saturated fat include fatty meats, full-fat dairy products, butter, coconut oil, palm oil and most deep-fried takeaway foods and commercially baked products, such as pies, biscuits, buns and pastries. Foods high in trans-fats include most deep-fried takeaway foods and commercially baked products.
  • Cholesterol in food (dietary cholesterol) - this has only a small effect on LDL cholesterol. Saturated fats and trans-fats in food cause a much greater increase in LDL cholesterol. You can include some cholesterol-rich foods, such as offal (liver, pate and kidney) and prawns, as part of a healthy, balanced diet low in saturated fats and trans-fats. You can also eat up to six eggs a week as part of a healthy, balanced diet low in saturated and trans-fats, without increasing your risk of coronary heart disorder.
  • Genetics – your family history may also affect your cholesterol level. Some people will have high cholesterol even if they follow a healthy, balanced diet low in saturated fats and trans-fats. These people may need to take cholesterol-lowering medicine as prescribed by their doctor.

Foods good for Cholesterol

  • Soy - 25 grams of soy protein per day
  • 2. Beans - Eat beans 4 -5 times or more per week. The FDA recommends an adult eats around 25 - 30 grams of fiber per day
  • Salmon - around twice a week
  • Avocado - 30 grams per day
  • Garlic - try to consume 2-4 cloves per day
  • Spinach - ½ cup per day
  • Margarine - spread lightly on toast or bagel
  • Walnuts, Cashews, Almonds - Aim for 2 tablespoons of chopped nuts five times a week, or a small handful as a snack 3-4 times a week
