Prevention

You may help to prevent high cholesterol by staying on a healthy diet and exercising daily. Avoid high-fat foods (eggs, fatty red meats, palm or coconut oil, dairy products made with whole milk). Instead eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, whole-grain breads and cereals, and low-fat dairy products.
