5 Easy
Ways To Lower Your
Cholesterol   

 

You've just had word from your doctor that your cholesterol is through the roof and your triglycerides have skyrocketed... you have some tough choices to make.

You have to choose to be the one to take control of your health, before that phone call from the doctor is telling you the next heart attack will kill you.  Get a grip, take control and realize that life has so much more to give when you decide you want to live a healthful life.

With a few simple changes in your life (these won't hurt a bit) you can significantly lower your cholesterol and all those bad levels your doctor warned you about. 

So muster your courage, take a deep breath and move on with life in a healthful way. You'll FEEL the difference, guaranteed.

1.  Read labels and nutritional value info.  Packaged foods have notorious quantities of fats, sugars and sodium.  Be careful, be vigilant and read your labels.  Know what you're putting into your body.  Choose those with the lowest fats, transfats, cholesterol, sodium and sugars. In general, it's also a good idea to avoid any foods you can't pronounce.

2.  Get up and get moving!  Exercise is ESSENTIAL to good health.  It is necessary for good circulation which benefits your heart, lungs, muscles and energy levels, to name only a few.  Get out of that chair and walk your dog, dance for twenty minutes, jog on the spot, jump on your bed or skip to thel loo.  Get moving!  You'll live longer.

3.  Use olive oil.  Not only is the flavor lovely, but it is healthy for you.  It's well worth eliminating oils and margarines and using olive oil instead.  It reduces your intake of trans and saturated fats by quite a percent. 

4.   Learn to eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables.  Not only don't they have cholesterol, but are good for you.  Greens are highly useful in eliminating fat and cholesterol from your body.

5.  Get used to eating the things that have good cholesterol.  The healthy kind that your body needs.  Avocadoes, olive oil and fish are all incredibly healthy for you.

Remember, this is your time to shine.  Your time to prove to yourself that you're worth working on.  Lower your cholesterol.  It begins a remarkable process that your body goes through on the road to health.
