Step 1: Cut your cholesterol! You like Beans? Well you are lucky in fact because beans are considered one of the most nutritionally complete and good taste food available, it provides you with proteins, magnesium, iron, soluble fiber, potassium, zinc and in very high amounts, but if you don’t like beans don’t worry because you can also use apples, pears, walnuts, almonds, bananas, oats, orange juice, olive oil, yogurt and many other tasty foods to help you cut your cholesterol.

Step 2:  Yes you need fats! They are essential to give your body energy, and they also protect your organs, you definitely need them but not as much as most people usually eat,  so you need to have a limit, on the resource section above there is a link to a website in where you can find out how much fats you need.

Step 3: Think about sizes, moderate yourself! This doesn’t meant that you cannot eat,  but try to not supersized your orders, split dishes with your friends, use smaller plates, a good tip for you is that if you are serving meat, chicken or fish it should be the size of a deck of cards.

Step 4: Chew food slowly! We usually tend to rush on our meals and because of that we actually forget the tastes, flavors, and the feel of the texture of what we are eating, and because of that we tend to eat more.

Step 5:  Eat your vegetables! They are one of the most important factors of your healthy diet; they give you calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, Vitamins, zinc and other important things.

Step 6: Go for the whole grains! They are healthy carbs like beans, fruits and vegetables, try to include brown rice, quinoa and millet, and yes they are very tasty so give it a try!.

Step 7: You need Proteins! But remember not to abuse, and yes you can eat your favorite meat, fish, milk, cheese, eggs, turkey and chicken but don’t abuse, eat in small portions and enjoy every single bite.
