fiber will help
klmwi posted:
I had no idea, my nutritionist and doctor didnt tell me this,
but Im reading books about lowering cholesterol,
and eating more fiber will help. I use MyFitnessPal.
It's free. I use their database to approximate what I eat
daily, and lately, I calculate what percent of my calories
were in pure FAT, and in sugar (separately). It's helping
me to lower total fat, which is what the nutritionist advised
last month, for cholesterol continuing to climb. I'm to cut mine
in half and I didnt know it was high. I dont eat meat, poultry,
fish, or cheese, much at all. You can
choose, and change, what factors you want to display each
time you make entries. Fiber can be one of them.

Actually you need good fats. Mono and poly unsaturated.

And watch the carbs. Beside the sugar too much carbs will be converted to cholesterol. Specially refined carbs.
