Yes, it is possible to help regulate cholesterol levels by regulating your diet. Without going into technical details, there is good cholesterol (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL).

Eating soluble fiber helps reduce bad cholesterol. Examples of foods containing soluble fiber are oatmeal, apples, kidney beans, barley, pears and prunes.

Fish with healthy fats and high omega-3 levels help lower bad cholesterol. Examples of healthy fish include salmon, sardines, mackerel and tuna. Fish should be grilled or baked to avoid adding any unhealthy fats.

Certain nuts reduce bad cholesterol. Try a handful of peanuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts. The nuts you choose should be raw, not coated in sugar or salt.

One way to increase healthy cholesterol levels is to drink one or two glasses of wine a day. Drinking cranberry juice increases good cholesterol.

Another way to regulate cholesterol levels is to stop eating prepared foods such as frozen meals, crackers, cookies and cakes.
