Health Tip: Take Steps to Cut Cholesterol

Limit fats derived from animals

(HealthDay News) -- There are dietary and lifestyle changes you can make that may help you lower your cholesterol numbers.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions:

  • Limit animal fats in your diet, including processed and high-fat meats and full-fat dairy products.
  • Eat lots of soluble fiber-rich foods, such as root vegetables, fruit, barley, flaxseed and oats.
  • Make at least one meal per week meatless. Substitute nuts, beans or tofu for meat.
  • Lose any extra weight.
