You may eat yourself through an armada of high cholesterol foods. It seems so easy and satisfying. Have you considered the opposite, where you can eat low cholesterol foods to your heart's content and still have the same amount of satisfaction with the added benefit of eating healthy? There are many foods available that could bring down your LDL cholesterol levels. Some of these contain some soluble fiber. This binds cholesterol in your digestive system, eliminating it before getting absorbed. Some contain polyunsaturated fats which lower your LDL levels directly. And then there are those that have plant stanols and sterols. These can prevent the body from absorbing unhealthy cholesterol.

1. Almonds

These nuts are a favorite among dieticians because of their numerous health benefits. Primarily, their unsaturated fat content assists in raising your healthy HDL cholesterol levels. At the same time, they bring down your unhealthy LDL. Secondly, the fats in almonds prevent your LDL levels to get oxidized. This means that such unhealthy LDL cholesterol won't clog up your arteries. When this happens, it could cut blood flow to the heart. Always have some almonds packed for snacks on moderate portions to reap its benefits. Do not over indulge as the nuts have high-calorie values.
