The fact is that 60 per cent of Britons have unhealthy cholesterol levels - a key factor in developing heart disease, which claims three times more lives than breast cancer and twice as many as lung cancer. The good news is that lowering your cholesterol is one of the biggest things you can do to reduce your risk.
Doctors agree that food is the best approach when it comes to lowering cholesterol. This is not a weight-loss diet but a recipe book based on the very latest medical research into key foods that are proven to have an active role in reducing cholesterol.
It's not about cutting anything out but including six food-types: fibres such as beans and pulses, nuts, soya, healthy oils, oats and other beta-glucans, and smartfoods. You still eat cheese, red meat, eggs and shellfish. By incorporating the 'six foods' into your diet, you will be able to reduce your cholesterol by up to 20 per cent in three months.
This groundbreaking cookbook combines the latest medical and nutritional information with delicious recipes, all of which contain key cholesterol-lowering ingredients.
