Around one in three Australian adults have abnormal cholesterol levels, but only one in ten are aware of this. The problem is, there are no signs or symptoms when your cholesterol is outside the normal range, so you need a blood test to measure it. This book, from the internationally renowned Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, presents a wealth of knowledge about cholesterol in a clear, easy-to-understand format, with chapters explaining what abnormal cholesterol is, how it affects our bodies, and strategies from reducing it through diet exercise and medication. Over 80 simple, flavorful recipes are included, with suggested 4-week meal plans, to help you adopt a cholesterol-friendly diet. The Baker IDI Healthy Cholesterol Diet and Lifestyle Plan will help you manage your cholesterol levels and improve your health.
