Very often people ask me what should I eat to control my cholesterol levels? Which oil we should use?
Following points may help you to solve your queries and may help you to keep your self fit and disease free.
Foods to Avoid :
Many people ask me that we have read that red wine is good for heart, so can we drink that or not. I answer them that Red wine has been shown to be effective in some studies only. Many studies have not found it useful though. Its up to you which studies you want to go with. Most important thing is, once a person starts drinking that, again moderation is required, which might be difficult. I know people who started with just 30 ml of red wine a day to keep their heart healthy, but landed into consuming a full bottle in a day giving excuse of its benefits. I ask you what’s the need? We have better ways to control our cholesterol. That’s my personal view point about red wine.
People then ask me, you have asked our all favorites to be avoided. What should we eat then? Or should remain hungry!!! I advise them that you can consume every thing but in moderated quantities, depending upon your target cholesterol and weight.
Healthy Tasty Alternatives:
Try following these dietary habits. Initially, you may find it difficult, but trust me once you achieve your targets, you will be asking others to follow this. You might become an idol of many cholesterol millionaries, who may come to you for advise!
