Food Restrictions, Limitations and Allergies

Fats and Cholesterol  Previous - Next

Cholesterol control 1.


Become “fat-conscious.” Nutritional labeling commonly indicates fat content, saturated fats, and trans-fats. Of course, many products are advertised as being “Fat Free,” “Cholesterol Free” or “Trans-Fat Free.” That’s fine, but remember that fat tends to be tasty. Many processed foods replace the fat with sweetening, too much salt, or other flavor stimulants that may be unwise for a person to consume.


When using a cooking or salad oil, choose an un-hydrogenated one like canola oil or olive oil.


Instead of butter, use a substitute or non-dairy spread, as long as it is not produced with trans-fats or hydrogenated oils.


Avoid most commercially produced fried foods: French fries, doughnuts, fried chicken, etc.
