Health Myth Buster: Cholesterol Free Foods are Good for You

While it’s a good idea to limit high-cholesterol foods like egg yolks, whole milk and meat, it’s actually more important to monitor the saturated and trans fats in your diet (artery cloggers).  Be sure to check out the nutrition labels on cholesterol free items (margarine, shortening, cookies, crackers, etc.) at the store and check their fat content too.  Here’s an additional interesting fact for you too…. the FDA allows a food to be labeled “cholesterol free” if there are no more than 2mg cholesterol and 2 mg saturated fat, BUT there’s no limit on trans fat!  Plus, your typical portion size may be larger than the actual recommended serving size on the food label.  If you’re really looking to add more heart healthy foods to your routine, stick with whole grains, fruits, veggies, legumes (beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc.), nuts and seeds.
