Are there any foods I should avoid?

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURE -

Most of us know the real cul­prit in raised choles­terol is sat­u­rated fat. Why? Be­cause it en­cour­ages the liver to pro­duce ex­tra ‘bad’ LDL choles­terol.

To give the Port­fo­lio Diet a chance to work, you’ll need to limit foods with this un­healthy fat. That means say­ing no (mostly) to fatty cuts of meat, pies, pasties, sausage rolls, cakes, bis­cuits and pas­tries, and eat­ing fewer full-fat dairy foods such as but­ter, cream, cheese and whole milk. (You can still eat re­duced-fat dairy prod­ucts in mod­er­a­tion.)
