Almonds, walnuts, olive oil, legumes, fat free yoghurt, proactive margarine, soybeans, cabbage, broccoli, spinach all help to reduce the level of harmful lipids.

What's a good breakfast for a person who has high cholesterol ?
Hi, A low fat diet with no cholesterol and preferably trans-fats--a breakfast with an oatmeal, low fat milk and some fruit would be ideal. Alternatively, brown bread, soya milk and some dry fruits would also do. Apricots are a good dry fruit choice as there is very little fat. The essential aim should be to improve the good cholesterol.
