High Cholesterol Board Index

I am sure his doctor probably recommended a low fat diet, one especially low in saturated fat. Get as much saturated fat out of his diet as possible. That does not mean eliminating all fat.

Bake and broil, do not fry. Use Olive or Canola oil for cooking.

He should avoid any shellfish, consume fat-free or low fat dairy products and limit eggs to no more than 2 to 3 whole eggs per 7 day week.

Fish, the type with tails, is recommended which contain various amounts of Omega 3 oils depending on the type of fish eaten.

Breast of turkey and breast of chicken, both without the skin, are recommended. If his doctor will let him have red meat, the 3 best for his condition are eye of round, filet mignon and top sirloin.


Based on my research and understanding of the subject, none of the above recommendations will have any impact on the high triglycerides. High triglycerides are caused by a diet high in carbohydrates, and in particular sugar (in all of its many forms including high fructose corn syrup found in all sorts of processed foods) and other highly refined carbohydrates (white flour, bread, pasta, cakes, cookies, etc.). The way to reduce high triglyceride levels is reduce refined carbohydrate consumption. And surprisingly to many, the way to boost HDL levels (good cholestrol) is to eat red meat and get more saturated fat in your diet.

And cold water fish are a good source of Omega 3 essential fat acids. Sardines are an excellent source.
