It is also important to reduce the consumption of meats and sausages. Avoid bacon and sausages. The pieces of pork and beef should be lean, i.e. free of visible fat. The lean ham has too little fat. The chicken, turkey, rabbit, hare, partridge, quail, goat … are lean meats if we care to remove the skin.
Reduce consumption of high cholesterol foods like organ meats (brain, liver, kidneys, sweetbreads, tripe) and seafood. Eggs must reduce them to three or four a week without actually deleting them from our diet as they are a very complete food. Egg whites or meringue can be made without problem.
Milk is one of the most complete foods and, therefore, also provides a certain amount of fat. If it takes a lot is convenient to choose skimmed or semi-skimmed. Also choose semi-skimmed or skimmed yoghurt.
An excellent option is to take milk enriched in omega three, in which saturated fat has been removed and we have added omega-3 fatty acids.
This yields double benefit: first, we eliminate from our diet this source of saturated fat, and secondly, we are incorporating omega-3 fatty acids, which are heart and reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Reduce consumption of cheeses, not taking them more than twice a week. Consumption is preferable cheese or low-fat cheese.
Benefits: Omega 3 fatty acids reduce cholesterol
