  • Well, I had a nutrition class for my nursing program, & they taught us that eating fiber can help with cholesterol levels... especially baked beans. Sounds weird, but it's true! Also, pre-packaged food tends to drive your levels up. Hope you find something that works for you!

  • Red Rice Yeast has been found to help lower cholesterol. Check with your doctor to see if this might be ok for you to take.

  • More fiber from fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Dried beans are good. Eat less red meat, and only lean. More fish.

  • There are a lot of foods that help, I am sure if you google you can find a good basic diet to be on and things to avoid.
