Heart disease is America's number-one killer. The correlation between high cholesterol levels and heart disease is proven. , but the number of people struggling with high cholesterol grows annually, and new national guidelines for healthy cholesterol levels recently became more stringent. Eating for Lower Cholesterol offers cutting-edge information on cholesterol to help people lower their cholesterol levels and reduce their risk of heart disease. Doctors advise millions of people with high cholesterol, on medications or not, to follow cholesterol-lowering diets. Yet patients often don't know what cholesterol is, where it comes from, or how to lower it through diet. This book's Introduction clearly explains cholesterol and how it relates to heart disease, what your "numbers" mean, factors that raise cholesterol levels, cholesterol in women and children, and other important issues. A Stay Balanced Scale, designed by a leading nutritionist, helps people take control of their diets without ever feeling deprived.More than 100 text boxes offer tips on the latest research findings, health claims, shopping, cooking, dining out, meal planning, food products, fast food dangers, and much more practical, essential information. More than 100 recipes are guaranteed to please everyone, which makes eating for lower cholesterol easier and tastier than ever.

I recommend buying 2 copies of this book. One to keep at home for the wonderful recipes and one to take with you every time you go food shopping or eat out. This book answered every question I have about how to feed my family healthy and delicious foods. It will provide you with the insight on how to shop for the most nutritious foods and what to look at on the food labels. Not only are the recipes healthy, but they are delicious, easy to make, and offer suggestions on variations to meet your personal tastes.
This book also offers recommendations on the foods you should and should not be feeding your children and many ideas on how to make them healthy eaters throughout their lifetime. Due to the appetizing recipes and overall nutritional recommendations, I intend to share this book with every member of my family.
I do not have high cholesterol, nor does my husband or children, but I stumbled on this book and it quickly grabbed me. Anyone and everyone can benefit from following a heart-healthy diet.
The recipes are fantastic. Some of my family's favorites are: Black Bean Soup, Crab Cakes with tomatillo-avacado sauce, Sesame coated Yellowfin Tuna, Lupita's Lemon Chicken, Chicken Fajitas with homemade guacamole, Buffalo Burgers, and Cashew Chicken. I've made several wonderful vegetable and salad recipes as well. The desserts are delicious AND heart-healthy!
The book also helps me with making food choices when I need to pack processed snacks for my kids or when desperate measures call for fast food. The nutritional information that I gained from this book is invaluable. A MUST READ!
