(Best Syndication News) - Doctor Mehmet Oz had a segment on his television show yesterday that discussed food substitutes that can help to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. The food substitutes are simple and easily found at the grocery store.
Food Substitutes to Lower Cholesterol Levels
Doctor Oz explained that high cholesterol levels could sometimes be reduced by the foods we eat and suggested three food changes that could help to lower those cholesterol numbers. Instead of eating 1 tablespoon of butter, which has 30 mg of cholesterol, eat pureed bananas because it has 0 mg of cholesterol. The doctor suggested using pureed bananas as a substitute for butter when baking deserts.
Instead of eating ice cream, which has 90 mg of cholesterol per serving, eat 2 percent frozen Greek yogurt because it has only 10 mg of cholesterol. Instead of using mayonnaise (5 mg cholesterol) on a sandwich, try using avocado slices, which have 0 mg of cholesterol.
