Follow a heart healthy diet that reduces meat, cooking with solid fats, lowering dairy fats and promotes fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, lean sources of protein and whole grains. High cholesterol may be contributed to inactivity, obesity and an unhealthy diet. Therefore by avoiding high cholesterol foods, and consuming foods that naturally lower cholesterol, cholesterol levels will improve with time.  Consult a health care professional for more information about what diet plan is best for high cholesterol, then a Registered Dietitian can prepare a customized meal plan for you.

Aim for foods that naturally lower cholesterol like oatmeal, oat bran, high-fiber foods, fish like salmon, tuna, sardines, lake trout, tilapia, catfish, omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts, olive oil, avocado, and foods with added plant sterols or stanols like some margarines, orange juice, and yogurt drinks.
