Today’s’ article is based on two different topics: one is: how to observe and lower your cholesterol, and the other is about a charming doctor who advises you on-line on his web-site.
I am in that particular “inspired” Friday mood. I wanted to write some ultra chic article, and I remembered this particular thing I like. A lot!
Do you know about Dr. Oz? Dr. Mehmet Oz is a America’s famous personality who has served as health expert on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” since 2004. He is a charming man, not only a good doctor…so you may watch his TV show for his pleasant presence as well. I found out about Dr. Oz, searching Oprah web-site. And the things written in the health category really caught my eye. Start point: Dr. Oz is vice-chair and professor of surgery at Columbia University.
For instance, I searched Dr. Oz web-site, and found out interesting things about the way you should eat healthy. Even though you hear this advice probably daily, a specialist recommendation will probably convince you easier. So, let’s take a look to Dr. Oz advise for the way you can increase the “good” cholesterol in your blood and the way you can lower the “bad” cholesterol you already have:
“How can I increase my good cholesterol?”
“For a change, we actually want to increase something in your body—your HDL levels. HDL is the “good” kind of cholesterol, the kind that’s carried by high-density lipoproteins. You want as high an HDL level as possible—at least greater than 40. Increasing your HDL can be done a couple of ways:
- consuming healthy fats found in olive oil, fish, and walnuts (a tablespoon, 4 ounces, or 12 a day is the right amount)
- walking or any physical activity for 30 minutes a day
- taking a newer statin (like Lipitor or Crestor)
- having a drink of alcohol every night (seven on Saturday night doesn’t count). But if you’re at risk for alcoholism or see other signs that drinking alcohol could be unwise, skip this tip.” – Dr. Mehmet Oz on 10th September 2009.
“How can I lower my cholesterol?”
“Here are few tips for lowering cholesterol:
- Eat fewer fats and fried foods. Choose non-fat and low-fat versions of foods, if available.
- When eating fats, select unsaturated fats. (Unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature – vegetable oils, for example. Avoid tropical oils, such as palm and coconut oil.)
- Choose fish and poultry more often than red meat.
- Limit total amount of meat, fish, poultry, and low-fat cheeses to 7 ounces or less each day.
- If you smoke, quit.
- Lose extra weight.
- Eat more soluble fiber. Good sources are fruits, beans, peas, and oats.
- Limit egg yolks to no more than three per week. (Egg whites are fat-free.)” – Dr. Mehmet Oz, on 25th September.
So, today’s article is based on two different topics: one is: how to observe and lower your cholesterol, and the other is about a charming doctor who advises you on-line on his web-site, or, whom you can hear on-line in the Oprah radio shows.
