There’s a difference between good cholesterol (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL).

A simple tip is to remember that bad cholesterol for the most part comes from meat or animal produced food such as milk, cheese and eggs.

Hence, over-consumption of foods with bad cholesterol are the direct cause of high cholesterol.

Astro Ulagam found 5 Common High Cholesterol Foods that you should avoid.

1)Egg Yolk

Dietary cholesterol doesn’t have the same effect in everyone because you may be able to get away with eating two egg yolks every day, whereas someone else might get their bad cholesterol to shoot through the roof very quickly.

2) Organ Meats like Liver and Heart

Animal organs are high in concentration of cholesterol. Avoid organ meats if you’re trying to lower your cholesterol levels.

3) Lamb

Basically, you’re taking in about 75 milligrams of cholesterol for every 3-ounce serving of lamb. So, be careful to balance with the food you’re eating throughout the day.

4) Butter and some Oils

These are silent cholesterol attacker. Ideally, you should find spreads and cooking oil products which are made from foods high in unsaturated fats such as olive oil.

5) Shrimp

Despite being relatively low in fat, shrimp is certainly high in cholesterol.
