Sadly this is not the path to follow as it brings its own problems to your health.
You see, your liver produces its own cholesterol; approximately 75% is produced by the liver.
Food containing cholesterol play a minor role in creating high cholesterol levels; by eating less cholesterol in your diet your liver just increases its production.
Your body also recycles cholesterol by returning it to the liver so it can be reused; your body does this because cholesterol is vital for our body. Every cell in your body relies upon cholesterol.
You are probably now wondering how to go about reducing your high cholesterol levels and what Low Cholesterol Diet you need to follow.
Firstly you need to decrease your insulin levels and reduce your blood glucose levels which will help reduce your high cholesterol levels naturally and in a safer way.
Your fasting Insulin levels need to be below 5 to reduce your risk of heart disease; this will also reduce your chance of developing cancer.
But wait there is more.
People, who either smoke, drink excessively, avoid exercise, eat a high sugar, or high grain diet or consume certain fats are damaging their bodies, this causes the body to try and repair itself and a by-product of this is high cholesterol levels.
And if that’s not enough, it is also known that people who are experiencing high levels of stress or have unresolved emotions are damaging their body which again may lead to high cholesterol levels.
I can’t stress this enough, it’s not the high cholesterol levels which damage the body, the body is already damaged and the cholesterol is attempting to repair the damage.
The reality is that saying that high cholesterol levels causes heart disease is a red herring. Cholesterol is an innocent bystander to heart disease.
So apart from avoiding smoking, drinking only moderate amounts of alcohol and increasing your activity you are probably wondering what else you can do to heal your body so that your high cholesterol levels can naturally lower by themselves.
The next best thing is to follow my Low Cholesterol Diet while reducing your stress levels and seek help for any emotional problems that you might be having.
Low Cholesterol Diet Step 1:
When possible avoid cans of soft drink which often contains cane syrup which is even worse for your body than white sugar.
Energy drinks are often full of sugar and these drinks deplete the body and they are only a short term fix and are best avoided.
Also avoid adding fructose to your diet instead of sugar. Agave Syrup contains large quantities of fructose and is very damaging for your body. Fructose is more readily turned into fat and raises triglyceride levels.
I will be adding some recipes shortly that will provide sweetness while helping to reduce your high cholesterol levels.
