The New Low-Cholesterol Diet: Nuts
Nuts aren't just for holidays anymore. Key nuts can help you lower cholesterol. Add nuts to your low-cholesterol diet.
"Although nuts have a lot of benefits, they're also high in calories
that can add up fast," says Farrell. Gaining weight is likely to undo any
of the heart-healthy effects of these foods.
The best way to add nuts to your diet is to use them to replace less healthy
fats -- like saturated fats in meats. That way you're gaining the benefits of
nuts without adding more calories.
