    1. Meet Cholesterol’s Ultimate Nemesis—Insoluble Fiber


    With easy availability, you don’t have reasons to excuse oatmeal & margarine. Some time back, oatmeal was considered an American breakfast fad that didn’t find many takers. Eventually, it has made it to most retailers across the nation in the form of flakes and oatmeal-enriched breads. Oatmeal contains a high concentration of soluble fiber. This kind of fiber prevents the bloodstream from retaining cholesterol. Margarine was looked down as a poor cousin of butter. Now, it has been established that margarine is enriched with plant sterols. These compounds are nature’s most potent cholesterol busters. Other sources of insoluble fiber include kidney beans, prunes, beans and barley.

    4. Don’t Go Nuts! Just Eat Them Regularly


    Many health-centric websites recommend munching nuts regularly to keep yourself healthy and young. Unless you are training for a weightlifting event, you don’t need to gorge upon nuts. Just maintain a steady, basic intake of various kinds of nuts such as pistachios, walnuts and almonds. Nuts are a healthy source of polyunsaturated fatty acids that help to reduce the thickness of blood and fight the harmful effects of cholesterol. Nuts also contain some amount of omega 3 fatty acids. These are effective cholesterol-fighting agents that help to control the blood pressure also.
