If you're taking medication to manage your cholesterol and your levels are abnormal, we'd recommend the same lifestyle recommendations below. Continue with your current regimen, unless your provider reaches out to tell you otherwise.
Try a Mediterranean diet with a heavy focus on fiber (vegetables, whole grains, legumes) and cooking with olive oil.
Eat healthy fats like olive oil, fatty fish, avocado, nuts, seeds, and grass-fed meat and dairy. Avoid hydrogenated trans fat.
While exercise recommendations change often, One Medical suggests aiming for at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise five times a week.
Make natural or minimally processed foods the basis of your diet.
Fill half of your plate with fruits and vegetables at every meal.
Treat any food as dessert if it includes any form of sugar in the first few ingredients (this includes sugar, high fructose corn syrup, organic evaporated cane juice, agave nectar, and honey).
Eliminate tobacco use.
