You need to start eating foods that are cholesterol free. Cheerios are good to eat in the morning. I am a fan of honey net cheerios BC you don’t have to add any sugar. Oatmeal is another great option. When eating eggs on;y eat the egg whites, and try to stay away from fast food restaurants. Instead of stopping by the local McDonald’s or taco bell at lunch make your own lunch at home, and take it to work. You will know what you are ingesting, while also saving a pretty penny.

Unhealthy cholesterol levels can boost your risk of heart attacks,
strokes, and other problems.
According to experts, there are four basic ways to get your
cholesterol where you want it:

Eating a healthy diet.
Exercising
Losing weight
Taking medicine — in some cases
While each of these works, some people have more success with one
than another. Many need a combination of approaches.

No matter what your age or the state of your health, you can reduce
your risks of serious problems by controlling your cholesterol — and
it’s not as hard as you think.
1. Lower Cholesterol by Eating Right

You’ve probably heard it before, but foods that are high in saturated
fat and — to a lesser extent — high in cholesterol, boost your
cholesterol levels. These include foods like egg yolks, fatty meats,
and full-fat dairy products.
You also cut down on trans fatty acids as well, which are more often
found in processed and fried foods.

But eating a heart healthy diet isn’t just about deprivation. In
fact, some foods — eaten in moderation — can actually improve your
cholesterol levels. They include:

Fatty fish, like tuna and salmon
Nuts, especially walnuts and almonds
Oatmeal and oat bran
Foods fortified with Stanly’s, like some margarine’s and orange juices


2. Improving Cholesterol With Exercise
Exercise is another way to improve your cholesterol levels. Increased
physical activity can have a modest effect on cholesterol, lowering
bad LDL cholesterol to a lesser extent, while boosting your good HDL cholesterol.
The type of exercise is up to you. Walking is the simplest and
easiest. Buy a pedometer to measure your progress and start moving.

3. Lose Weight: Lower Cholesterol
Being overweight tends to lead to unhealthy cholesterol levels.
Losing weight can lower your bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It
also can raise your good HDL cholesterol.

Of course, weight loss is usually a product of a good diet and
exercise. So what if you’ve already improved your diet and started
exercising but still need to lose weight?

Then you need to make some further adjustments — gradually. Once
you’ve reduced your intake of saturated fats, trans fats, and
cholesterol, you can focus on cutting out some calories. In the same
way, once you’ve gotten into an exercise routine, you can step up the
intensity to lose some pounds.


4. Controlling Cholesterol With Medication
So what happens if diet, exercise and weight loss aren’t enough to
bring your cholesterol under control? Your doctor might recommend
medicine.
Do not self-treat yourself, and do not rely on a pill:
cholesterol-lowering drugs have many adverse effect, and you may end
curing one illness while getting another. Taking medicines is a
drastic measure, and you can start doing it only after consulting your
doctor.

A cholesterol lowering diet and a healthy exercise regime help lower blood cholesterol level. The cholesterol lowering diet includes no cholesterol foods such as grains and cereals, nuts, fruits and vegetables and cholesterol lowering foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel) and fiber (oatmeal and oat bran).

Prepared foods are generally packed with more fat than nutrition. Natural Foods Rule when it comes to lowering bad cholesterol levels.
