High cholesterol level is becoming an increasing threat to many people. This is because many changes have involved our daily lifestyle that had lead to a partial sedentary life.
High cholesterol is when the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels rise above normal and the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels fall too low. When this imbalance occurs in the body, it puts one at a greater risk for high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and diabetes.

High Cholesterol Foods
Eggs are one of the foods high in cholesterol. Eggs contain a high amount of saturated fat even when boiled, let alone fried or burnt. The amount of saturated fat in your body can have an effect on your cholesterol levels.
Meat is an excellent source of protein but is very high in saturated fat. If you are trying to lose weight, you should stay off meat, especially red meat, until you get to that healthy weight you're looking for. And even after that, keep red meats in your diet to a minimum. You're also better off taking the skin off white meat like chicken to reduce fat.
Butter is made from animal fat; therefore also contains a lot of saturated fat. Make sure you go easy on that butter.
Cakes and biscuits
Baked products can contain a lot of cholesterol. Try baking at home instead of buying baked products from shops, since you don't know what they would have put in them. That will put you in control; you can then try cutting the amount of fat and cholesterol in whatever you bake.
You can easily replace butter, eggs, and milk with other alternatives that are healthier, such as egg substitutes, soy milk, rice milk and healthy vegetable oils.
Fatty salad dressings
Heavy salad dressings are high in fat, calories and can contribute to raising your cholesterol levels. You don't have to give them up completely, just use low-fat versions. Don't go with what the supermarket calls low-fat, read the labels so that you can understand what each salad dressing is made up of. Think olive oil and vinegar dressings.
