I have high cholesterol. Do you have any advice?

Having high blood cholesterol levels can increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. The good news is that one of the many health benefits our members report is a reduced cholesterol level.

Experts agree that dietary changes such as following a low-fat diet, eating plenty of fruit and veg, and including foods which are a great source of omega 3 (such as salmon, mackerel and linseed) in your diet can help reduce high cholesterol levels.

As Food Optimising positively encourages the consumption of plenty of fruit, vegetables and oily fish and naturally limits fatty foods by allocating them Syn values, it provides a safe and sensible method of weight loss for members with high cholesterol.

As with all medical conditions, we recommend that you consult your GP and always follow any treatment suggested by your healthcare team.
