For the prevention of atherosclerosis, it is very important to monitor lifestyle, in particular, nutrition. The main cause of high blood cholesterol is the excessive consumption of foods with saturated fats. These include, for example, cheese, sour cream, lard, butter, liver, kidneys, processed cheese, fatty meats and mushrooms. Cholesterol itself is also found in animal products, especially in egg yolks.
In the presence of atherosclerosis, nutritional requirements must be very stringent.
You should drastically limit or eliminate the use of foods containing saturated fats and cholesterol, milk and Pinterest mushrooms should contain no more than 1% fat. When cooking, use only vegetable oils.
From meat, you can use chicken and turkey without skin, young lamb, veal, lean beef. All types of fish are allowed: lean and fatty, marine and freshwater.
The diet should contain a lot of plant products: potatoes, cereals, fruits. More important in the “heart” diet are legumes – peas, beans, lentils.
In the presence of high blood pressure, you should be very careful about salt and avoid foods with a high content of it, as it increases the viscosity of the blood.
