Lower Your Cholesterol

Plant-based salad

  • In a recent study (July 2019) the Portfolio Diet lowered cholesterol by 27%

  • This is a flexible diet that gives you 4 “food components” from which you pick low-saturated fat / low-cholesterol foods

  • This is not a weight loss diet – it is for lowering cholesterol

  • If your cholesterol is very high you can combine this with a lower level of statin therapy

  • The original diet is plant-based but there are variations that allow for small amounts of lean meats and dairy products

  • I hadn’t heard of this diet before but it does look like it would be another good way to bring your cholesterol down

  • You can find more information from your doctor or get this Portfolio Diet Infographic
