Healthy Eating For Lower Cholesterol

Description

A book of recipes devised by a leading chef and based on nutritional advice - this is a much-needed cookbook for people who are concerned about high cholesterol. It contains over 100 recipes that have been created to tempt your tastebuds while managing your cholesterol levels, together with helpful advice and practical information.

Cholesterol is a waxy fat that is carried by the bloodstream to service all our body cells and organs. About half is manufactured in the liver and the rest is absorbed from cholesterol-rich foods such as meat, eggs, cheese and other dairy products. Cholesterol is divided into 'good' and 'bad' types and too much of the latter can lead to health problems such as strokes, heart attacks and hardening of the arteries. The good news is however that diet and exercise can significantly benefit our cholesterol levels.

In the first part of the book, dietitian, Catherine Collins looks at the prevalence of high cholesterol and discusses the causes and the symptoms. Treatments looked at include medication and lifestyle, plus an in-depth analysis of how diet affects cholesterol levels. She considers the latest food recommendations, plus the best ways to incorporate them into your diet, with lots of useful tips on cooking methods, shopping and eating out.

The second part of the book provides over 100 recipes, created by Daniel Green in consultation with Catherine. Recipes are divided into meal types - breakfasts and brunches, soups and salads, sides, snacks and starters, main courses and desserts - and will help you to lower your cholesterol levels while satisfying your appetite.
