High cholesterol diet: THREE simple lifestyle changes to help reduce cholesterol

How diet can reduce your cholesterol

The UCLP has been shown to reduce total cholesterol by up to 12 percent, reduce LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol by up to 17 percent, and reduce 10-year cardiac risk by up to 13 percent, Dr Lee pointed out.

She said: “The diet also lowers systolic blood pressure by one percent, and diastolic blood pressure by two percent.

“It can also lower levels of C- Reactive protein – a marker of chronic systemic inflammation, by up to 32 percent.”

The good news is that even if you can only manage to stick to the diet 50 percent of the time, it is still likely to reduce LDL cholesterol by 12 percent.

You can also safely follow this diet if you are taking statins, which will also help to reduce your cholesterol.
