Regular aerobic exercise can be of benefit to those with high cholesterol levels. Always seek the advice of your healthcare professional before commencing an exercise programme.
If you are overweight, talk to your healthcare professional about ways to address this.
Maintain a low-fat, high-fibre diet of fresh fruit and vegetables, and avoid meat products, aiming instead to use fish, legumes and grains as sources of protein.
Eating moderate amounts of such foods as nuts, seeds, and avocados may actually lower LDL cholesterol and be protective against heart disease.
Use cold-pressed vegetable oils where possible as these contain more nutrients than the more processed oils. Always check an oil before using, and discard oil at the first sign of rancidity.
