Wise Wednesday GOKI Readers, as we reach the midway point of this week, my question is: Are you accomplishing all you wanted to at this point in time, workwise or lifewise? If per chance you are one of the few who has, do you have any wise tips to share with the other readers as to your work/life style?

May 11, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day

WORK TO LOWER YOUR LDL AND RAISE YOUR HDL

The bottom line is that the less LDL you have, and the more HDL, or good cholesterol, you have, the lower your risk for heart disease. When it comes to trying to lower your LDL, food choices are key. A combination of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, regular physical activity, and a healthy weight can help you lower your total cholesterol as well as raise your HDL, lower your LDL, and lower your triglycerides. It is important to focus on your cholesterol intake as well as your saturated fat intake, which often occur together in foods. Cholesterol and most saturated fats come only from animal foods. Even though some foods of plant origin are high in fat or saturated fat, all plant foods are cholesterol free. Nuts, for example, are high in fat - mostly unsaturated fat - but are cholesterol free.

As Always, To Your Health!

P.S.  Take a moment and check out this video about cholesterol.
