High cholesterol: Whey protein can help ‘improve your numbers’ – what to eat


There is also other dietary advice to follow. Heart UK says some foods contain cholesterol, but surprisingly they don’t make a big difference to the cholesterol in your blood.

It says this is because most of us eat less than 300mg of cholesterol per day – a small amount compared to the amount of saturated fat we eat.

It explains: “All animal foods contain some cholesterol. But by cutting down on the animal foods that contain saturated fats you will be keeping the cholesterol in your diet in check too.”

Heart UK says: “Cholesterol is only found in foods that come from animals, there is no cholesterol in foods that come from plants. So, there is no cholesterol in fruit, vegetables, grains, seeds, nuts, beans, peas and lentils.”
