by , 20 June 2014

Choosing heart healthy foods is essential to improve your health and lower your cholesterol.

Many people don't even know they have high cholesterol and it's a case of them finding out when it's too late. When it's already affected their heart health and there's no turning back the clock!

So instead of falling into this category, be sure to make the right diet choices to keep your cholesterol levels stable.

What's great is that you don't even have to cut a “cholesterol culprit” like meat out from your diet, says the American Heart Association. All you have to do is make sure it doesn't contain high amounts of fat.

Use these tips to lower your cholesterol despite eating meat

1.    Always buy lean cuts of meat
So if you’re shopping at the butcher, ask him to cut off the leanest part of the meat for you. If you’re shopping at the store where you buy pre-packed meat, choose a piece with the smallest amount of fat and cut it off when you get home.
 
2.    Be savvy about the parts of the animal that contain the least amount of fat When you’re buying lean beef choose the round, chuck, sirloin or loin cuts. When buying pork, choose the cuts from the tenderloin or loin. The leanest parts of lamb include cuts from the leg, arm and loin.
 
3.    Cook your meat dishes a day ahead of the time
Let the dish rest in the fridge and you’ll see the fat on the top of the dish the next day. You can scoop this off and discard it. This way you’ll remove a huge portion of saturated fat from your meal.
 
As you can see, you don’t have to completely remove meat from your diet if you’re trying to lower your cholesterol and keep you heart health in check. Instead, use these tips to ensure you’re getting good quality, lean meat.
