Are there any foods I should avoid?
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.)
