A Low Cholesterol Diet is a diet designed to reduce the amount of cholesterol circulating in the blood, Cholesterol is a waxy substance made by the liver and also acquired through diet.
Cholesterol does not dissolve in blood. Instead it moves through the circulatory system in combination with carrier substances called lipoproteins. There are two types of carrier-cholesterol
combinations, low-density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein or good cholesterol.
low-density lipoprotein picks up cholesterol in the liver and carries it through the circulatory system.
Most of the cholesterol in the body is low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
When too much low-density lipoprotein cholesterol is present, it begins to drop out of the blood and stick to the walls of the arteries.
The arteries are blood vessels carrying blood away from the heart to other organs in the body. The coronary arteries are special arteries that supply blood to the heart. The sticky material on the artery walls is called cholesterol plaque.
Plaque can reduce the amount of blood flowing through the arteries and encourage blood clots to form.
A heart attack occurs if the coronary arteries are blocked. A stroke occurs if arteries carrying blood to the brain are blocked.
Researchers believe that high-density lipoprotein works opposite low-density lipoprotein. high-density lipoprotein picks up cholesterol off the walls of the arteries and takes it back to the liver where it can be broken down and removed.
This helps to keep the blood vessels open.
Cholesterol is a necessary and important part of cell membranes. It also is converted into some types of steroid hormones.
Cholesterol comes from two sources. The liver makes all the cholesterol the body needs from other nutrients. However, other animals also make cholesterol. When humans eat animal products, they take in more cholesterol. Cholesterol is found only in
foods from animals, never in plant foods.
The foods highest in cholesterol are organ meats such as liver, egg yolk, whole-fat dairy products like butter, ice cream, whole milk, and marbled
red meat. To reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, adults should keep their consumption of cholesterol below 300 mg daily.

Low Cholesterol Diet meals for example:
. Breakfast: You have a variety of breakfast choices for your low-cholesterol week, even if you’re accustomed to eating eggs. On a couple of days, try an omelet made with sauteed vegetables
and egg whites, which contain no cholesterol. Add an ounce of cheddar cheese for 30 milligrams of cholesterol. Oatmeal is naturally cholesterol free, enjoy it on alternate days combined with
other plant foods such as walnuts, blueberries or blackberries, and soy or almond milk. A cup of cottage cheese has only 10 milligrams of dietary cholesterol and is good with fruit like
pineapple or berries.
. Lunch: Eat a salad for lunch to keep your cholesterol intake low. On one or two days, top your greens with canned tuna in water, 3.5 ounces contains only 30 milligrams of cholesterol. Beans
and soy foods like tofu are naturally cholesterol-free, so add them to your greens on other days for protein and fiber. Alternate lunch options include hummus with vegetables and whole-wheat
pita bread or a black bean or chickpea burger. A cup of low fat yogurt, which supplies just 10 milligrams of cholesterol, is a quick, light lunch on days when you're in a rush.
