KristaCoroWise responded:
Add more cholesterol-lowering foods to your meals. Oatmeal is great for breakfast. Raw nuts for snacks, fatty fish for dinner. Another easy thing to do is swap out some of your regular snacks and drinks for ones that are fortified with plant sterols. Products like Minute Maid Heartwise orange juice and Smart Balance HeartRight milk contain CoroWise plant sterols, which help reduce "bad" cholesterol levels and are backed by an FDA health claim.
