HDL: The Good Cholesterol

better-fats-tooHDL, the well-behaved cholesterol! HDL cholesterol is the friendly scavenger, since it removes harmful bad cholesterol from the bloodstream. High HDL levels reduce the risk for heart disease, but low levels increase the risk. So, the higher your HDL’s the better! Check out the tips below to help with raising your number.

 

  • Lose weight – set small goals and move towards a healthy weight
  • Get active – exercise can boost your number
  • Go nuts – pair a small handful of almonds with a piece of fruit for a healthy snack
  • Stop smoking – kicking the habit can raise your HDL

 

ACTION: Choose better fats – olive oil, salmon, tuna, avocados, walnuts
