How to Reduce Bad Cholesterol

A little attention to detail never hurt anyone and may have benefits if it involves monitoring what you put in your body. Reduce your bad cholesterol through simple disciplined measures that are proven to help.

Step 1: Disrupt fat with exercise
Use exercise to naturally disrupt the metabolism of fat. Eating less helps, but excess body fat will keep cholesterol up until you actually lose pounds by breaking a sweat. Moderate walking and workouts five days a week can raise good cholesterol by 10 percent.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health suggests everyone 20 and over should check their levels of bad cholesterol every five years.

Step 2: Relax and reflect
Relax and reflect periodically, rather than give in to the high tension that constricts arteries and raises blood pressure. If you’re constantly stressing out, consider making some long-term changes that will eliminate some of your stres for good.

Step 3: Get good greens
Drink green tea, full of compounds that can help lower bad cholesterol. Eat leafy greens as well, for soluble fiber that sponges up cholesterol in the digestive tract.

Step 4: Consume nuts
Consume nuts instead of cheese, meat, or croutons in salads. According to the Food and Drug Administration, a daily handful of 42.5 grams of nuts may reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.

Step 5: Substitute fish
Substitute meat with fish twice or three times weekly. Consuming fish can profoundly lower cholesterol and triglycerides.

Step 6: Choose smart fats
Select smart fats for your diet, substituting canola or olive oils for vegetable oil, butter, margarine, lard, or shortening. It’s not merely fats, but the kind of fats you eat, that make the difference.

Eggs do not drastically increase cholesterol.

Step 7: Take drugs to lower cholesterol
Take a cholesterol-lowering drug if you have evident cardiovascular risks. Beforehand, consider alternatives like niacin, bile acid resins, and fibrates.

Step 8: Commit to win
Resolve to make changes, and live a healthy lifestyle. It’s your life — only you can make the changes to lower your bad cholesterol.

Did You Know?
In 2010, researchers identified nearly 100 gene variants possibly linked to as much as one third of hereditary factors influencing cholesterol production.

  5. I don't want to reduce cholesterol because people with high levels of both HDL and LDL cholesterol have no more incidents of heart disease and heart attack than people with low cholesterol levels.  Up to date research tells us that but we are bombarded every day with ads telling us (and doctors) we need to reduce cholesterol levels.  This whole cholesterol issue is the product of the big pharmaceutical companies to sell the most popular drug in the world today – statins!  They  have the government convinced too and are raking in billions of dollars world over.  The human body naturally produces cholesterol as it is a requirement for cell growth and health – both HDL and LDL are needed.

  6. I do intense exercises and work out doors.  But when it comes  to eating rabbit food, it doesn't work for me and it makes me tired.   And besides my cardiologist said a diet would not work to get my familial hypercholesterolemia down which is a genetic disorder.  And besides our bodies produce most of our cholesterol where food adds very little to cholesterol.

  7. "Eggs don't drastically increase cholesterol." But they do increase it somewhat. If you want to lower cholesterol, eggs are off the menu. The same goes for oils and excessive nuts. This kind of advice is what the establishment uses to keep the drug companies in business.

  8. Don't worry LDL or the bad cholesterol alone unless your triglycerides are high and your HDL is low.
    Consider the two readings which is important one is triglycerides and the other one is the HDL. Don't worry about LDL reading because there are 2 Types of LDL, the larger ones and the smaller ones. The larger ones or benign is not harmful, only the smaller LDL which contributes to heart desease. Just look at the values of HDL and triglycerides. If triglicerides is very high and your HDL is low most likely the LDL numbers seen are likely the smaller ones which is harmful. Just make sure to increase your HDL and lower your triglicerides.

  9. Eat much less processed food. Cut out most carbs and sugars. Greens, nuts, good fats (including saturated animal fats) should be the mainstay of your diet if you want a healthy cholesterol balance.

  10. my dad just died from a heart attack.  He had low cholesterol.  My uncle just had a heart attack.  He has low cholesterol.  In fact the whole Lipid theory is junk science.  Based on giving Rabbits Cholesterol, and  Dr. Ansel Keys Six Countries Study.  Turns out the doctor purposely left out the other countries he studied.  If he had included all 22 of them, the chart would have shown no conclusive outcome.
