According to Medline Plus the DASH is one option. Another option is the Therapeutic Lifestyle
Changes diet, which recommends to choose healthier fats. Limiting both total fat and saturated
fat. No more than 25 to 35% of daily calories should come from dietary fats. Less than 7% of the
daily calories should come from saturated fat. (How to Lower Cholesterol with Diet, 2021).
Saturated fat is bad because it raises LDL level more than anything else. It is found in some
meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods. (How to
Lower Cholesterol with Diet, 2021).
Trans fat is another bad fat; it raises LDL and lowers HDL also known as good cholesterol.
Trans fat is mostly in foods made with hydrogenated oils and fats, such as stick margarine,
crackers, and french fries. (How to Lower Cholesterol with Diet, 2021).
Replace these bad fats eating lean meat, nuts, and using unsaturated oils like canola, olive, and
safflower oils. (How to Lower Cholesterol with Diet, 2021).
Limit foods with cholesterol such as foods of animal origin, such as liver and other organ meats,
egg yolks, shrimp, and whole milk dairy products. (How to Lower Cholesterol with Diet, 2021).
Eat plenty of soluble fiber to prevent the digestive tract from absorbing cholesterol. It is advised
to eat “whole-grain cereals such as oatmeal and oat bran, fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges,
pears, and prunes and legumes such as kidney beans, lentils, chick peas, black-eyed peas, and
lima beans.” (How to Lower Cholesterol with Diet, 2021).
Limit salt and alcohol intake. (How to Lower Cholesterol with Diet, 2021).
