Heart disease is America's number-one killer. The correlation between high cholesterol levels and heart disease is proven., but the number of people struggling with high cholesterol grows annually, and new national guidelines for healthy cholesterol levels recently became more stringent. Eating for Lower Cholesterol offers cutting-edge information on cholesterol to help people lower their cholesterol levels and reduce their risk of heart disease. Doctors advise millions of people with high cholesterol, on medications or not, to follow cholesterol-lowering diets. Yet patients often don't know what cholesterol is, where it comes from, or how to lower it through diet. This book's Introduction clearly explains cholesterol and how it relates to heart disease, what your "numbers" mean, factors that raise cholesterol levels, cholesterol in women and children, and other important issues. A Stay Balanced Scale, designed by a leading nutritionist, helps people take control of their diets without ever feeling deprived. More than 100 text boxes offer tips on the latest research findings, health claims, shopping, cooking, dining out, meal planning, food products, fast food dangers, and much more practical, essential information. More than 100 recipes are guaranteed to please everyone, which makes eating for lower cholesterol easier and tastier than ever.
