Transcript

00:05
so cholesterol represents a really
00:08
important risk factor for heart disease
00:10
now we need a little bit of cholesterol
00:11
in their system because it helps us to
00:13
house housekeeping and and repair
00:16
tissues but unfortunately most of us are
00:18
exposed to way too much cholesterol in
00:20
our diet cholesterol levels are in fact
00:23
set somewhat by our genes but they’re
00:26
heavily influenced by what we eat as
00:28
well the major sources of cholesterol in
00:30
the diet tend to be coming from animal
00:32
fats so this is typically red meats but
00:35
also through dairy products like milk
00:37
cheese and ice cream so what I always
00:41
tell my patients is that if they’re
00:43
watching their cholesterol they need to
00:45
be very careful all dairy should be skim
00:47
and they should avoid red meats as much
00:49
as possible focusing on leaner meats
00:51
like chicken fish and turkey and even
00:54
white white pork can be good as long as
00:57
they trim the fat so if you’re watching
01:00
your cholesterol and taking medication
01:01
it’s also important to know that
01:03
medication alone isn’t enough you need
01:05
to focus on your diet as well and
01:07
together those two things can powerfully
01:09
reduce your risk for heart disease
