Keeping Your Cholesterol in Check With These Tips

By Virginia Laird

Your overall wellness should always be your priority. However, as parents, it can be easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of chasing children and leading the carpool to the next practice or rehearsal. Often, with the rush, it can be a struggle to follow healthy lifestyle choices. However, it is necessary. Health and wellness experts suggest that foregoing healthy choices can have a negative impact on your cholesterol numbers. These are imperative in keeping your body healthy. These professionals admit there are a few things you can do, even while living life on the go, that can help improve your cholesterol numbers, including:

  • Cut back on your alcohol
  • Watch what you eat
  • Choose to give up the cancer sticks

Cut Back on Your Alcohol Consumption

While there are many who preach that drinking helps reduce the risk of heart disease, there is plenty of research which suggests that drinking can increase both the good and bad cholesterol. For this reason, health and wellness experts suggest that you should limit your consumption of alcohol. It is suggested that you should consume no more than one glass of alcohol each day. Although you may think you can handle more than this, it is best to remember that keeping your cholesterol in balance should be a priority.

Watch What You Eat

There are a variety of foods that can impact your cholesterol in a negative way. Health and wellness experts suggest that steering clear of these items can help you ensure a healthy cholesterol reading. A few of these foods include noodles, breads, eggs, and much more. Professionals admit that foods high in fat can also impact your cholesterol. As you make your healthy diet plans, make sure they include plenty of fruits and veggies as well as lean protein and limited carbs.

Choose to Give Up the Cancer Sticks

Research suggests that smoking can affect both your bad and good cholesterol numbers. Health and wellness experts admit that smoking can lower your good cholesterol while increasing the numbers for your bad cholesterol. For those who have just started the habit, it is best to stop it now, before it becomes a habit you cannot quit. For the many who have struggled with this addiction, there are plenty of ways to help you kick it. These include over-the-counter gum, support groups, and much more.

Now is the time to start putting your health first and make living a healthy lifestyle part of your routine.
