HERE ARE 5 GREAT DIET TIPS:
- Think plant-based meals: fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans) and nuts / seeds.
- Instead of adding salt to your favorite meals, substitute herbs and spices to give your meals punch without the sodium content.
- Eat no more than 1-2 servings of red meat per month, and eat at least two servings of poultry and fish (preferably wild, not farmed) a week.
- Replace butter with "good" oils (olive, canola, etc.), which are high in monounsaturated fat, helping clear cholesterol from the body.
Limit dairy intake and choose low-fat / fat-free options when it comes to milk, cheese and yogurt. That way, you can enjoy some of the health benefits of dairy (calcium, protein, healthy bacteria) without the high fat / cholesterol.
