    Unsaturated fats such as nuts, beans, peas and lentils will increase your good cholesterol (HDL), lower your bad cholesterol (LDL) and reduce your overall cholesterol.

    Eat olive oil. I like to have scrambled eggs (or even egg whites) in the morning and use olive oil instead of butter.

    Consume less simple carbs. Eat more lean animal protein. Increase physical activity.

    Hi Leslie,

    Look out for legumes, especially soya bean products such as soya milk, tofu, tempeh and edamame. Soya foods lower LDLs while increasing HDLs.

    Stop smoking and avoid too much of alcohol, although there is evidence that one glass of red wine daily is beneficial. Red wine offers goodies in the form of powerful anti-oxidants that come from the pigments of grape skin. But drink only in moderation. 1 unit a day fro women and 2 unit a day for men is ideal. Smokers tend to sufferfrom low levels of HDLs.

    Natural ingredients such as Rooibos, Gugulipid and Red Yeast Rice are well known for their beneficial properties of reducing levels of LDL (‘bad’) and triglyceride, while increasing the levels of protective HDL cholesterol. With a few life-style changes and a little help from nature, cholesterol levels can be well managed.
