My mother has health problems, and on her last doctor’s check up, he realized her cholesterol is high. Off course, he told her to take care about her diet, but he did not specify which food she should stay away from when watching her cholesterol. I know that many foods contain both saturated fats and cholesterol. Food labels contain information about fat and cholesterol content, but we cannot understand it good. Can you tell us exactly which food she has to avoid?

It is extremely important to keep cholesterol close to normal, because it could lead to some dangerous consequences. She should avoid saturated fats and oils, such as butter, bacon drippings, lard, palm oil, and coconut oil. Good advice would be to replace these with soft tub margarine or vegetable oils, such as olive, safflower, soy, corn, canola, or peanut oil. Tell her to limit fatty acids or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, such as those found in hard margarines, snack crackers, cookies, and chips. After this, it is important to limit fatty meats such as corned beef, pastrami, ribs, steak, ground meat, frankfurters, sausage, and bacon. Especially she should take care about high-cholesterol organ meats, such as liver and kidney, and egg yolks. Limit servings of meat, poultry, fish, and milk products containing more than 1% milk fat. She need to limit snack crackers, muffins, quick breads, croissants, or cakes made with extra fat, saturated or hydrogenated fat, whole eggs, and whole milk. Very good way to keep cholesterol is instead of using butter or margarine on bread, try dipping it in olive oil. I think there is no need to say she has to avoid fast foods, such as hamburgers, fries, fried chicken, and tacos.
