Easy Slow Cooker Recipes to Lower Your Cholesterol: The Best From VitaClayChef

Having high cholesterol has a higher risk of heart diseases and heart attacks, but a lot of ways can be done to counter it. Besides medications, change in lifestyle is most important above all. If you live healthily, medications won’t be of no need anymore; that’s possible.

Exercise: We all know that extra weight above normal puts us at risk of having higher cholesterol, so increasing physical activities most of the days of the week will help improve weight to normal and will likely to get maintained cholesterol levels in a natural method. Plus, you get to trim your body that fitting clothes is not a cumbersome job anymore; how’s that for an exercise?

Quit smoking: Quitting smoking has a quick effect. In 20 minutes after quitting, your blood pressure and heart rate recover from the cigarette-induced spike. Let that go on for three months and observe your blood circulation and lung function beginning to improve. For a year, you’re saving yourself from risks of heart diseases half that of a smoker. So don’t stop there, get a clean living all the years of your life.

Alcohol control: If you’ve been drinking lately, especially without moderation, you have a higher risk of high cholesterol. If you could lower alcohol consumption to only one drink a day (women of all ages and men older than 65) and up to two drinks only (men 65 years and younger), the risk of high blood pressure, heart failure and strokes could be lessened. If you don’t drink at all, that’s better!

Proper/prescribed medications: When it felt that change in lifestyle isn’t enough to counter the problem, seeking medical attention is very important. Taking prescribed medications and continuing your lifestyle change will work better especially if you want to lower your doses over time. If that works, you can possibly stop medications as long as you get better and if the doctor approves.

Choose food wisely: Let’s not forget how you get high cholesterol. Food is mainly what causes high cholesterol levels especially fatty foods like meat. Reducing Saturated fats (found in red meat and full-fat dairy products) and Trans fats (labeled “partially hydrogenated vegetable oil," -often used in margarines and store-bought cookies, crackers and cakes) works as good as a lifestyle change. Choosing what and what not to eat is best to lessen-even fully eliminate these health-threatening high cholesterol levels.  Eating rich in omega-3 fatty acids foods, (found in fishes) increasing soluble fiber (from oatmeals, vegetables, and fruits) and adding whey protein (from dairy products) in your diet are just a few healthy ways to get a well-managed cholesterol level. Putting simply, eat healthily. 

With all the remedies you need to undertake, and so many restrictions from foods you once loved to eat, enjoying meals could be somewhat impossible especially if you don’t have enough experimenting options to make more exciting meals. Doctors will advise to lessen meat consumption, stick to vegetables, fruits, and fishes to improve your health, but having no idea how to make these limited choices of food into a more indulging meal, you tend to just stick around plainly sautéed veggies and fishes in low-fat oil and chopped fruits for salad. That’s boring, isn’t it?

So here’s a complete list (beware it’s long) you can do with your food to make the less-cholesterol journey even better. From main dishes, veggie sides, desserts, snacks, drinks, soup-name it all, SAVE IT ALL!
