Foods That Lift Cholesterol.
So let's begin with some of the foods that raise your cholesterol. Then you will recognize what to stop. The overall goal is to cut down the level of dietary cholesterol that you take in. Two of the culprits in high cholesterol are saturated and trans fats. Saturated fats is located in foods like full-fat dairy products (like whole milk and cream), some oils, and meat. Even worse than saturated fats are trans fats. You may get these bad boys in foods like margarine, cookies, cakes, crackers (not all foods thatin | start with "c" are risky). Trans fats can lift your LDL levels and lower HDL levels at the same time. That's a double hex you do not want! .
