Food for the Heart
Published Online: Sunday, June 1, 2003 [ ]
The foods people eat can play a major role in increasing or alleviating high blood cholesterol. Here are tips for heart-healthy eating from the Southcoast Health System:
Eat fewer foods high in saturated fat and cholesterol
Buy skim or low-fat milk, low-fat yogurt, and reduced-fat cheeses
Consume more fish and poultry
Trim fat from meat
Limit egg yolks; substitute 2 egg whites for 1 whole egg
Use less salt and fat; season food with herbs and spices instead of using sauces, gravies, and butter
