Cholesterol Free And Low Cholesterol Foods
Most people are familiar with the word or have heard of cholesterol, whether it is high or low. Did you know that it is a waxy substance that clogs the arteries?
Cholesterol is critical to the formation of cells and other tissues. But if it is high, it could lead to a stroke. If you have a high cholesterol level, is one of the primary risk factors of getting heart disease. If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis you can lower your cholesterol level. Also, you may want to consider eating low cholesterol free foods.
Keep in mind that, it doesn’t give you a blank ticket to eat anything you want because you are eating cholesterol free foods.
You still need to be conscious of what you eat. It is back to basics and you should eat at least three to five servings of fruit or vegetables.
Did you know that fruits and vegetables have no cholesterol? Keep in mind that you can eat fruits and vegetables as snacks, side dishes and as a main dish. Have you thought of making vegetarian dishes as a main course? Make sure that you wash all fruits and vegetables before eating them.
Carbohydrates such as bread, cereals, peas and pasta are foods that are very starchy and full of fiber however, they are low in fat and calories.
Try to eat five to ten servings of this food group daily. If you have a low cholesterol level, you should try to keep the amount of carbohydrates to approximately 60% of the total calories. Make sure that you are choosing whole grain breads rather than white bread because they have more fiber.
Also buy dry cereals because they tend to be lower in fat. Try to limit the amount of sugar and baked goods you eat, as these tend to have empty calories and are not healthy. They also most generally, have a high cholesterol content.
At restaurants, remember to choose those that offer low-cholesterol and healthy low-fat meals. You may want to check with the server and inquire as to how the foods are prepared.
You should always avoid food that is fried, breaded, covered with cheese, fried and other dishes that are high in fat.
You are better off with dishes that are steamed, broiled rather than breaded or fried, poached, grilled, and those dishes that are baked. If you have to eat fast food, try to eat salads and avoid burgers that are layered with cheese, mayonnaise and bacon. Try to eat broiled chicken and lean meats.

Sometimes, the demands of modern life seem to require an endless supply of energy. It’s hard enough just trying to squeeze everything in, then finding the energy to actually do everything presents a whole other obstacle. Are *YOU* low on natural energy?When it comes to maintaining your good health, even when we try to eat well, we're still disadvantaged…
The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.
It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.
The best nutrition products I know of make use of knowledge gained from the botanical world's 6,000 year history.
