Do you know which foods contain good cholesterol, and which contain bad cholesterol? If you think you do, ha! That’s a trick question! Cholesterol in our food doesn’t come in “good” and “bad” varieties, but cholesterol readings from blood tests do, and the two aren’t as closely connected as we used to think.
HDL is the one you want to be high; you want LDL to be low.
My doctor told me that my levels were a tad high, but the ratio mattered more. The best part? No cholesterol medication suggestion from the doctor. It really does pay to eat better and look after yourself.
