30 Days to Better Health: How to Reduce Cholesterol

How to start lowering your cholesterol in a month. A short guide:

Week 1: Know and Change Your Food

  • Day 1-3: Do a blood test and talk to a doctor to find out your cholesterol levels. Start eating foods that are good for your heart. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat proteins. Eat less of the fats that are in red meat and some dairy products.
  • Day 4-7: Keep eating healthy foods. Start looking at food labels to avoid hidden sources of bad fats and cholesterol.

Week 2: Add Exercise

  • Day 8-14: Start a regular exercise plan. Try to do something that makes you sweat for at least 30 minutes most days of the week. This can be as easy as fast walking.

Week 3: Change Your Habits

  • Day 15-21: If you smoke, stop. Drink less alcohol. Both these changes can make your cholesterol levels better.

Week 4: See Your Progress

  • Day 22-28: Write down what you eat, how you exercise, and what habits you have. This can help you see what’s working for you.
  • Day 29-30: Do another blood test to see your progress. Talk to your doctor to understand the results and what to do next.

Remember, you need to keep these changes for a long time to see the benefits. It’s important to see your doctor often to check your cholesterol levels. Always talk to a doctor before you make big changes to your lifestyle.
