Cholesterol Lowering Diet: Lower Cholesterol with Paleo Recipes and Low Carb The Cholesterol Lowering Diet book features two different yet very similar diet plans, the Low Carb Diet and the Paleolithic Diet. Each diet is geared to be low carb and offers great benefits to those who need help in lowering their cholesterol through diet. The first line of action a healthcare provider will suggest for a patient with high cholesterol levels is to eat a well balanced diet. Many will suggest steering clear of high carbs and eating healthy whole foods from lean meats and fresh fruits and vegetables. These very foods are featured in both the low carb diet and the Paleolithic diet. The first section of the book features a Low Carb Diet plan. Low carb foods naturally help the body to lower cholesterol and maintain proper cholesterol levels. The categories included in the low carb section are: Rise and Shine with a Fortified Breakfast, Lunchtime Recipes for Afternoon Energy, Great Dinner Surprises, Unique Side Dishes, Fulfillment with Drinks, Make Ahead Snacks, Let's Have a Picnic, Exciting Desserts, Wise Wok Cooking, List of Low Carb Foods, and Tips for Prepping. A sampling of the recipes include Luscious Lime Cheesecake Tarts, Chicken Waldorf Salad, and Homemade Sweet Granola Mix. The second section of the book is about the Paleolithic Diet. The Paleolithic Diet is a naturally low carb diet, which helps to lose weight, lower cholesterol, and keep the blood sugars normal. The Paleolithic sections includes these categories: What is Paleo, Why Go The Paleolithic Route, Benefits of the Paleo Lifestyle, Paleo Food Types, Paleo Confusion, Paleo Food List, Sample Daily Meal Plan for Beginners, Eating Paleo in Day to Day Life, Recipe Ideas, Breakfast, Lunch Recipes, Dinner Recipes, Sides, Soups and Salads, Meats, Poultry, and Snacks. All the recipes call for healthy fresh lean meats and fresh fruits and vegetables.
