5 Ways to Keep Cholesterol in Check

We all know that LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) is no good for us, and one of the leading risk factors for heart disease is high cholesterol levels in the blood. So use these five tips from the Cleveland Clinic on ways to help lower your cholesterol:

  1. Avoid high-fat or fried foods. When you do eat foods with fat, look for unsaturated, not saturated, fat.
  2. Reduce the amount of red meat that you eat, and eat more fish and poultry.
  3. Get enough soluble fiber by eating plenty of fruits, beans, peas, and oats.
  4. Don't eat more than three egg yolks per week.
  5. Get plenty of exercise, maintain a healthy body weight, and stop smoking.

Fit's Tip: If you haven't had your cholesterol checked, you may want to ask your doctor to run a blood test — especially if high cholesterol runs in your family.
