When cholesterol levels are elevated your diet should be low in fat and high in fiber since the fiber helps to absorb the fat and elimates it from the body.Include more of raw vegetables, taking fruits as whole rather than juices will help to increase the fiber in the diet. Use more garlic and onions in the preparation of which will help to reduce the levels. Avoid taking junk, oily fried foods, saturated fats like ghee, butter, mayo sauce, red meats, organ meats, crabs, prawns, lobsters,carbonated beverages, highly saturated sweets and alcohol.Use high fiber foods like whole wheat, multi grain flour / breads, broken wheat, rice flakes,at least weekly twice green leafy vegetables, daily two serving of raw vegetables and fruits,aviod sugars - since they are converted into fat in the body and drink plenty of fluids.Many research studies have proved taking cinnamon powder along with water in empty stomach reduces the cholesterol levels in the blood. Along with the above dietary modifications, daily physical activity of at least 30-40 minutes is necessary.
