There’s good cholesterol and bad – but do you know the difference? Here are some helpful hints and facts to help you distinguish the two.
Dr. Oz’s Cholesterol Facts:
- Ideally, your low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels should be under 100 mg/DL.
- The liver produces cholesterol, therefore you want to eat foods that keep it healthy and avoid foods like white bread that contain bleached flour.
- Foods that help cholesterol: monosaturated fats & soluble fiber.
- Foods that hurt cholesterol: Whole milk, peanut butter, liver, dark chicken meat.
