【Standard Cholesterol Level Diet】Cholesterol can be divided into bad cholesterol and good cholesterol. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) is bad cholesterol, which would accumulate in blood vessels; while high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) is good cholesterol, which helps transport bad cholesterol in blood to liver for excretion.
The intake of saturated fat is likely to increase the bad cholesterol levels in the blood. It is recommended that no more than 10% of the daily calories intake comes from saturated fat. Trans fat helps reduce the good cholesterol and raises bad cholesterol, so it is better to avoid consuming trans fat. Excessive triglycerides will also accumulate in blood vessels, increasing the risk of coronary heart disease and mortality.
Tofu, salmon, olive oil, green leaf vegetables, green tea, grapefruit can also help reduce bad cholesterol and improve heart function.
Friendly reminders: Although salmon and olive oil are also rich in unsaturated fats, excessive consumption will increase total fat intake and total cholesterol. Therefore, daily total fat intake should be controlled within 25-35% of total calories intake.
