MEAT AND MEATLESS ALTERNATIVES

One serving equals 1 oz (cooked weight, no bones or fat) or 25 grams.
Meat supplies protein and iron but you only need small amounts for your daily protein requirement. By cutting down on the amount eaten daily, you avoid the major source of saturated fat and cholesterol.

Meatless Alternatives
are good sources of protein, and are low in fat and cholesterol.

Changing what you eat and method of food preparation can reduce significantly your blood cholesterol level.

If the cholesterol level does not come down after a few months, your physician may recommend a much stricter diet. If, despite your honest efforts, you must take medication, your good eating habits may let you reduce the quantity.
