  • Salads with lettuce and vegetables with sunflower seeds and grilled or baked chicken,fish, turkey breast and a low cholesterol dressing are nice this time of year. From what I've heard lately, it isn't the cholesterol in the diet as much as it is the saturated fats. So use skim milk, reduced fat cheese, lean meats (including poultry) , no deep fried food. Even eggs are allowed in moderation. Your doctor should give you a list of foods and recipes.

    Don't expect a doctor to know much about nutrition.The doctor should have referred you to a nutritionist or a dietician.Here are some great links to help you learn more:
