There has been some confusion about cholesterol. Rumor has it that cholesterol causes heart disease and that a variety of foods should be axed from your diet in order to keep your cholesterol levels down, and your heart healthy.
Well, the rumors aren't exactly right. Let's do some myth minding and fact finding!
Do I need cholesterol? Yes.
It’s the parent molecule for all the major sex hormones, including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. It’s needed for the immune system, and it’s needed for the brain.
Do I need to lower my cholesterol? You can if you want.
The best way to lower your cholesterol is by eating foods high in fiber (grains, beans and vegetables) and reducing animal protein consumption. I teach that one serving of animal protein is 3-5 oz. for women and 5-7 oz. for men.
Is my high cholesterol causing heart disease?
I'm worried about my heart. What should I focus on?
When you follow the 5 Key Elements, your heart will really start to love you. The best thing about eating well is that you no longer need to look at your body as a collection of ailments. When you reduce sugar and increase vegetables, your body will start to function and feel whole! Eating well, along with reducing stress and exercising regularly will reduce inflammation (the REAL cause of heart disease).
Can I get off my medication?
Most of my clients on cholesterol lowering medications are able to get off their medications, working with their doctors, by the end of the program.
