The amount of sol­u­ble fi­bre you need daily to lower choles­terol by 5 to 10 per cent. Oats pro­vide beta-glu­can, a type of fi­bre that dis­solves with wa­ter in the stom­ach and in­testines, then forms a gel like a wall­pa­per paste. This sweeps up choles­terol in the gut and out of the body via your stools. Legumes also boost sol­u­ble fi­bre — so, re­place some or all of the meat in recipes with lentils, chick­peas or beans.
