Foods To Eat If You Have High Cholesterol

February 16, 2007

cholesterol.jpgMy previous post reviewed some principles regarding the kinds of fat we eat in the food.  Now to simplify further and for us to easily remember… let me enumerate the foods we allow our patients to eat if we see a high cholesterol level in the blood test.

Foods That Are Allowed:

  1. lean cuts of meat, chicken and fish
  2. skim, low fat milk, low fat yogourt
  3. for those who like eggs: the egg whites are okay
  4. olive, canola, sesame, soybean and safflower oils: 5-8 teaspoons /day only
  5. most breads, wheat bread, cereals, noodles
  6. fresh fruits
  7. plain popcorn, pretzels, tea and coffee.

Foods That You Can Eat Once In A While:

  1.  shellfish like tahong
  2. 2% fat milk, lite cream cheese
  3. 2 x /week of egg yolk
  4. nuts, avocados, seeds
  5. muffins, cornbread, biscuits
  6. homemade cakes and pies prepared with unsaturated fat

Definitely AVOID: Steaks, whole milk, whipped cream in your coffee, COCONUT OIL, coconut, vegetables that are prepared in BUTTER, ice cream, potato chips, buttered popcorn, frappes and floats, croissants, doughnuts, noodles prepared with cream ( yummy but sinful).

The choice of food is realy without limits.  But the option to eat the choices we are offered is up to us.  The need to discipline ourselves and know what is right and healthy depends on our determintation and willingness to know the difference .

 

My advise is:  You can still enjoy your steak BUT get the less fat cut!  Enjoy your popcorn while watching th movie but not the buttered one.  Enjoy your brewed coffee in the mall rather than the frapuccino with whipped cream!

Remember…

The Choice To Be Healthy Is Up To You!

  4. Kevin Says:

    Hi Doc. I have these small red spots on my feet some are large in size while other are not. And a few on my hands. Just recently I went to the doctor got blood & urine samples, got the results. Then I took the results to my dermatologist and he said that I have high cholesterol levels and I think this may be causing these spots.. I’m only 23 years old and I’m very worried about this. What can I do?. Please email me if you can otherwise leave email here. I’m desperate. Thanks. ^_^

  5. sadia Says:

    hello docter my dad’s feet have scabs all over them why is that? and how can it be cured? he is 36 years old and has high cholestrol

  6. Doc Gerry Says:

    Hi Sadia… difficult to say. I have to have the chance to see it to give you a diagnosis.

  7. KEnneth Says:

    Hi doc,

    I noticed avocado was in your list of “eating once a while” ie. restricted food.

    I always have the impression from articles that avocados are good for lowering chelestoral and should be encouraged?

    Thx!

  8. Sandra Says:

    I heard that you can eat organic eggs(from rooster), yolk and all, and that they cannot harm you. Is that correct and how often?

  9. jigs Says:

    Hi Doc,

    is it alarming if you have cholesterol level of 250? i know tyhe average is 200

  10. jenny moxom Says:

    my cholesterol is 7.5. My diet is generally very healthy (lots of veg and fruit0. I don’t eat lots of meat, are there any other factors thst can hsve an affect on my cholesterol?

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Jen…high cholesterol is a metabolic disease meaning the defect is in your system and no matter what you do, your liver is not able to metabolize the cholesterol well because of the defect. No matter how healthy you eat, the LDL cholesterol will only be lowered by 7 to 10% so in that case you will need a drug to help lower it.

  11. katie Says:

    Hi Doc,

    I’m 20 years old, I’m a very active college student. I eat pretty good considering I’m a college student. However I have high cholesterol and have had it all my life. I’ve been told its not my genes, but everyone in my family has it.Should I be worried and what else can I do!?

    • cookie queen Says:

      you should go to the doctors and ask him what to do if its notin your dominant genes it could be tagged along with them. x

  12. May Says:

    hi doc,
    I just want to ask regarding high level of sgpt ranging from 96 and high cholesterol level what are the foods to avoid and to eat? is there a way to lower it down without taking medicines?
    thanks a lot

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      yHi May….You need to know why SGPT is high…it may be the onset of a fatty liver due to mtabolic syndorme with high sugar and cholesterol. Therefore taking meds for cholesterol is not a contraindication in this case

  13. amber smith Says:

    hi,Can my dad eat lentil curries he has high colestrol n misses his lentils

  19. Jim Says:

    Hello,
    I’m currently in China and man All that is NOT to be eaten has been gobbled by me in great quantum. Food is so cheap here in china and almost anything goes with rice. Rice Rice Rice!. I’ve put on so much weight nobody can recognize me anymore. My breathing is so labored and recently I have developed these horrible pain and double beating of the heart.
    So now I reckon I’m cruising for a bruising and this is no joke. But like I said we can’t eat nothing here without rice. So what do I do? Eat less rice this time or forget it? Lots of vegetable but I wonder if that can support my appetite? But ‘m goanna starve!!!! Somebody tell me something

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Jim… you body can only absorb so much…maybe the problem is the desire to eat more rather than the desire to feel full. Stand up and leave the table once you aree 80% full… then grab something later if you are starving via a piece of apple. I dont recommend you forgo rice but just cut down the protion sizes of all the foods you eat and eat enough only up to 80% full then leave and stop looking at the food becuase you tend to eat more!

  20. Michaela Says:

    My doctor told me not to eat spicy food since I have high cholesterol. This is the first time I heard that and can’t find any publications to confirm his order. Can you help me please??


  21. The American Diabetes Association suggests an individual restrictions their saturated fat intake to about 7% per day but a standard Western diet gives you around 40%. Given that too much fat promotes poor health, it would be better to limit fats including those in coconut oil that have a higher risk of promoting health problems since most Americans get way a lot of saturated fat anyway.

  28. Traci Says:

    I was diagnosed with fatty liver in December and told to get a Lipid blood test. All levels came back high except for HDL (good cholesterol). I havent heard anything from my doc so I’m wondering if the high cholesterol is the reason for the fatty liver and what I can do, if anything, to lower it. Your advice would be an answer to prayer. Thank you

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Traci…a fatty liver is a red flag that you are going to develop diabetes, high blod pressure and difinetely now you have high cholesterol. Have yourself throiughly chekced so one can easily manage fatty liver and hopefully help you avoid the risk of developing the metabolic syndrome.

  29. amaya Says:

    say having high cholestrol is very bad but what can keep you smiling is that its also a way to connect with your self and say”wow i did it i ate good and i am eating so healthy ”and whats best is that your saving your heart because there is some people who are lazy and dont even care well that is not what you want you want to be healthy and healthy and living a good long healthy life…………..thANK YOU…

  30. Lulu Says:

    Hi, Dr. Gerry, thanks for helping many people, God bless you. Dr. told me my cholestrol is within the border, what should i do to lower it. i do exer aerobic 3 times a week in 5 years now i do watch my food taking light cheeze low fat milk even in coffe shop i asked for low fat milk in my coffe but only sometimes i eat meat BBQ & chips my favorit food, please advice
    many thanks

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Lulu…most of the time…if the high chlesterol is theLDL or the bad cholesterol then almost always its metabolic and genetic… no matter what you do… diet can only lower it to a verysmall degree and you may need medication depending on your risk level which your doctor can assess.

  31. Yanira Says:

    Hello Dr. My name is Yanira and my doctor told me that i have a really high cholesterol count.I was wondering if it was ok to eat all foods that are marked as fat free and low fat. Is there any in particular that i should or shouldn’t eat?

  32. curious I Says:

    Hi,
    your post have been very helpful. you stated in one of your reply “The problem with unused energy sources are that if underutilized, they are easily stored as fat…contributing to the so called fat belly”. if this is the case, how does one go about getting rid of belly fat, or is it a case of when you have it, it can’t get rid of.

    Hello Doc! Your blog is such a good find! Lots of good advice ’round here. Thanks po for this blog.

    I have something to add po sa foods to have once in a while if not avoid in general: MAYONNAISE. Even if the commercials say their mayonnaise is made with healthy oils, mayonnaise, the end product, has a different set of nutrition facts from the individual ingredients. I wrote a number of blog posts on this in fact.

  37. Yvonne Says:

    Hi Dr, my name is Yvonne, I am 55 years of age, I have been eating an healthy balanced diet for the past four years now, mainly because i had a cholesterol rating of 5.69, I brought it down slight over the four years to 4.74, last year 2009
    I went for a check up 25/09/10 to find it has gone up to 8.54
    I eat the 5 fruit and veggies per day, oily fish, chicken etc,
    could this be a thyroid problem. I have been for a full blood count today, but still very concerned, also I have notice that I have a rash around my ankles, could this have been an indication that my cholesterol was increasing

  44. valerie Says:

    hi my doctor said i have high colesterol and if i cant bring it down on my own i have to take medication,,the trouble is i cant have fruit because sugar gives me reeeally bad migraines and i cant eat alot of the food they serve at work (its mostly deep fried) i feel like im starving to death!! what can i eat to make myself feel fuller longer,,,i just want to eat ALL the time >.<

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Valerie..if your problem is triglycerides…then its food related…the pastries, the fried foods; however if its the bad cholesterol thats the problem…then its a metabolic problem that will definitely require medication especially if you have a strong family history of heart disease or if you have other conditions that predispose you to heart disease like diabetes.

  45. Stephanie Says:

    Hello, I’m thirteen years old and after having gone to the doctor with severe cramps they took my blood to see if there were amy life threatening problems that could possibly explain the 9 long days I had of cramping. The doctor concluded that I merely had some bad food poisoning and that I had to keep hydrated, all that good stuff. Also what they found was that I had high cholesterol, and as soon as I learned that I cut myself short and stooped eating horribly(I wasn’t eating drastically bad in the first place but anything that I did munch on once in a while before was cut off). I told my friend and she said that she had high cholesterol and didn’t really care and kept eating bad. We are both at healthy weights she is 102 lbs and I’m 87 (I am short) lbs. So I was wondering, as I finally get to my conclusion, should I really be worrying about my high cholesterol at such a young age when my body is still developing or should I pull in the horses while I have a tight grip on the reigns and also another question if I have high cholesterol an so does my frien why are we both at healthy weights and not overweight? Sorry for the lengthy comment I would highly appreciate it if you answered my questions!<3
    Thank you. Doc

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Hi Stephanie…weight and cholesterol are separte issues… weight is environmental, cholesterol can be genetics. However… having high cholesterol can be aggravated by poor lifestyle but havong anormal weight does not necessarily equate to normal cholesterol. So yes… be cqreful with a level considered high by your doctor… at your young age…eating a healthy meal can help avoid furthewr exacerbating the problem. If the problem is really genetics and runs in the family, you will definitely need to take medication especially if you will develop concomitant diseases that will predispose you long term to heart disease. Check your family tree and it will give you a clue!

I do smoke though , but really worried because I dont no what I can do to lowr it cos I dont eat a lot of saturated fat just cheese but no more than anyone else ,ny hubbie is 50 and we eat the same his is fine ,please help,

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Nicki, unfortunately, having a high cholesterol especially a high BAD Cholesterol called LDL is metabolically determined and genetics based…most likely one of your parents has the problem and you inherited it. You are doing great but no matter what you do the bad cholesterol will be high if you got the liver defect in cleaning it from your parents. So most likely depending on your risk, you may need a drug to lower the bad cholesterol. Talk to your doctor about it. Continue your healthy lifestyle as you lower your sugar, your BP , your triglycerides by doing so

  56. MahIiiii Says:

    atleast give the right type of food..

  57. airam Says:

    great advice. Today I just found out that I have high cholesterol. I have to go in again to check my liver, they didn’t explain much, can you tell me why they want to check my liver? I am worried. please help. Thank You. :)

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Airam, theyre making sure that you may have a condition called Fatty Liver. Its a red flag that you will get the metabolic disease associated with Diabetes, High blood pressure and Cholesterol. Its a benign condition and very easy to treat. Just make sure you take care of what you eat and take care of your weight! PLUS exercise.

  62. Sharon Says:

    I just to found out from my Doctor today that I have high cholesterol. I am 46 years old. And I have never had it I was really taken back by it. Because I am very active I exercise five to six days a week. My question to you is I eat maet a lot and my favorite is grilled steak. Could that be why I have high cholesterol. If so what other foods would be a good thing for me to eat. Thank you very much for your time:)

    • Sharon Says:

      sorry i meant to type meat.

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Sharon… almost always you may have inherited your risk to have high cholesterol as part of the metabolic syndrome. Check your parenst if any are diabetics or hypertensives…almost always they have also high cholesterol. YOur eating steak compounds the problem but am sure you dont eat steak everyday. Ask your doctors to assess your risk and medication maybe needed to help you lower your cholesterol. Kepp up the good work on exercise!

  63. AUDREY Says:

    hello doc i’m 41yrs, 150lbs, 5ft7ins. my cholesterolis level is7.1 and i do exercise a lot and stay away from fatty food. what else can i do.My mother also had and died of heart attack in her sleep, my sister found that she have high cholesterol and also my brother.Doc im worried because i also have a leak in my tripostic vale

    • Doc Gerry Says:

      Hi Audrey… a high cholesterol level is metabolic. Your bdy produces cholesterol even if you dont eat. Your body is not metbolising cholesterol properly and therefore if your have this problem in your family most likely this is in your genes therefore…to lower your level, on top of your exercise and proper diet…if youre at high risk, you may need to see your doctor and ask help using drugs to lower your bad cholesterol
