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:

  1. Ideally, your low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels should be under 100 mg/DL.
  2. The liver produces cholesterol, therefore you want to eat foods that keep it healthy and avoid foods like white bread that contain bleached flour.
  3. Foods that help cholesterol: monosaturated fats & soluble fiber.
  4. Foods that hurt cholesterol: Whole milk, peanut butter, liver, dark chicken meat.
