Vast amount of information is available on internet, newspapers, magazines and tv programs about cholesterol diets, medication, exercise programs. Unfortunately, conflicting opinions and view create more confusion rather than clarity for those who need to use the information for health reasons.

Guiding Principals Of
Sample Diets For Lowering Cholesterol
Your body NEEDS cholesterol for its biological needs. And your liver CREATES ENOUGH cholesterol to fulfill its organic needs.
Genetic markers make the difference. Both – the cholesterol production and its utilization - are influenced by the set of genes you have inherited from your parents.
In fact, like your body, all animals form cholesterol. All animal foods that you consume, are the sources of cholesterol.
In contrast, plants do NOT create cholesterol. So plant (vegetarian) foods – vegetables, fruits, cereals, legumes and beans, nuts and dates - are free of cholesterol.
So, The First Guideline..
Food from Animal Source is source of all cholesterol in your diet.
The Second Guideline..
Plant Food is Free of cholesterol.
But, beware of another cousin of cholesterol that is present in vegetable oils. Vegetable oils have TRIGLYCERIDES.
