By EatingWell Editors

What you can do to lower your cholesterol for better heart health.


READER'S COMMENT:
"you may want to explain the math further on the saturated fat section. you have it listed as 7% of 2000 calorie diet which comes to 140 calories this is 15.5 grams by dividing by 9 (9 calories for each gram of fat) "

Keep cholesterol low

Limit your intake of cholesterol from food to less than 300 mg per day. If your LDL is high, you have heart disease or you’re taking a cholesterol-lowering medication, it’s best to consume less than 200 mg of cholesterol per day. Foods high in cholesterol include liver and other organ meats, egg yolks and full-fat dairy products.
