People With Higher Cholesterol Should Eliminate Carbs From Their Diet

According to recent studies, Hypercholesterolemia (a genetic disorder that contributes to two-four-fold higher cholesterol levels than the average person) must minimize the carbohydrates from their diets rather than the fats. 

With Higher cholesterol levels you should start avoiding food from animal sources, such as meat, eggs, and cheese, and coconut oil too.

According to an international team of experts on heart disease and diet, including five cardiologists have reviewed guidelines of dietary for the people with high cholesterol level. They claim that they couldn’t see any justification to prescribe a low-saturated fat diet.

David Diamond, Professor and Heart Disease Researcher at the University of South Florida said: “For the past 80 years, people with familial hypercholesterolemia have been told to lower their cholesterol with a low saturated fat diet.” But “Our study showed that a more ‘heart-healthy’ diet is one low in sugar, not saturated fat,”

For people at greater risk of heart disease, including people with excess weight, hypertensives and diabetic, low-carb dieting is most efficient.

A recently published news in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, where good evidence has been given to reduce the food that raises blood sugar, such as bread, potatoes, and sweets, should be minimized, rather than tropical oils and animal-based food.
