Low Cholesterol Diet

Low Cholesterol Diet

I recommend that you adhere to a low-cholesterol diet. Guidelines to follow are to refrain from having butter, margarine, eggs, beef, fried food, oils (with the exception of olive oil), and remove the skin from turkey, chicken, and fish. You may use egg whites liberally and substitute apple sauce for oils in cooking deserts. When you read labels, try to use foods with 0-3 grams of fat per serving as a rule. On occasion (once weekly), you may have a small amount of the above.
