Heart healthy: Persons with high cholesterol should follow a diet that is low in fat, and cholesterol. A healthy diet would include fruits, vegetables, low fat meats such as chicken, fish and turkey. You would want to avoid a lot of red meat. You should consider grilling, broiling, or baking your food instead of deep frying. Reading food labels is important as well, some foods will surprise you.

↓↓Carbs & ↑Nat. Fats: Cholesterol (↓$, but misleading) = a fat molecule manufactured by every animal cell; building block of each cell membrane (enables membrane fluidity/movement without tearing), fundamental to survival of every animal cell; poorly absorbed. Lipoproteins (proteins which transport all fats in the water outside cells) = correct issue for ↓ artery disease (eg LDL-P ≤700 nmol/L Large-HDL-P ≥10 µmol/L).
