Either way, Maria Romo-Palafox, a registered dietitian and postdoctoral fellow at the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at the University of Connecticut, told CNN:

“If you have problems with cholesterol or if you have a family history of cholesterol or heart disease, then it’s better to consume less red and white meat and replace beans, lentils, grains with higher protein content, like quinoa and soy-based products like tofu and tempeh.”

processed meats

Processed meats, like bacon and sausage, aren’t far behind.

An article published in the National Library of Medicine of the United States, on the “Consumption of red and processed meat and its impact on cardiovascular health in Spain” warns:

For example, a study published in The Journal of Nutrition suggests that palm oil is one of the worst oils for cholesterol.

The researchers found that consumption of palm oil results in higher LDL cholesterol, compared to vegetable oils that are low in saturated fat.

fried foods

As expected, foods are among the worst for cholesterol and Harvard University says:

“Foods that have been dunked in the deep fryer, like chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, and onion rings, are among the worst when it comes to cholesterol.”
