By Virginia Laird
Staying healthy can be a struggle for anyone of any age. However, the battle to stay (or get) healthy is one well worth the battle. Cholesterol plays a large role in keeping the body healthy. Many overlook this aspect of wellness when trying to improve overall health, opting instead to focus on weight, drastic diets, and much more. Maintaining healthy cholesterol numbers can be easier to talk about than to accomplish. Health and wellness experts admit there are several things you can do to help improve this reading without taking drastic measures. A few tips offered by these professionals include:
- Lose some weight
- Avoid too many eggs
- Watch your noodle consumption
Lose Some Weight
Research indicates that shedding a few extra (and often unwanted) pounds can help manage your cholesterol. Health and wellness experts suggest that monitoring your diet and exercise is a great place to begin your weight loss journey. It is advised that you begin with hitting the gym each day for at least 30 minutes and cutting out sugar. Limiting your consumption of sweets can be helpful in shedding a few pounds. If you are one who needs to get your cholesterol in check, there is little time to waste.
Avoid Too Many Eggs
Health and wellness experts admit that eating too many eggs can increase bad cholesterol numbers. While there are many diets suggesting that you need to increase your consumption of eggs, health and wellness professionals advise that you should limit your consumption to no more than two eggs daily. These same experts suggest that choosing to consume only the egg whites can be a healthier choice. Today is the time to start monitoring your egg consumption.
Watch Your Noodle Consumption
Lately, there has been a good bit of chatter surrounding carbs (breads and noodles) and how these can have a negative impact on your cholesterol. Health and wellness experts admit that this research is accurate. So many diets encourage participants to cut these simple carbs out of their lives. Consuming too many of these carbs can lead to other health issues, including diabetes and weight gain. Health and wellness experts admit that a healthy diet is one that is filled with a plethora of veggies and lean protein.
With these tips you are now ready to start tackling your cholesterol and improving your health right away.
