DR. DAVE'S FITNESS FACTS

Foods to Avoid
For Low-Cholesterol & Low-Triglyceride Diets

Meats & Fats: Marbled beef, pork, bacon, sausage and other pork products; fatty fowl (duck, goose); skin and fat of turkey and chicken; processed meats; luncheon meats (salami, bologna); frankfurters and fast-food hamburgers (they're loaded with fat); organ meat (kidney, liver); canned fish packed in oil.

Eggs: Limit egg yolks to two per week.

Fruits: Coconuts (rich in saturated fats).

Veggies: Avoid avocados. Starchy vegetables (potatoes, corn, lima beans, dried peas, beans), may be used only if substitutes for a serving of bread or cereal. (Baked potato skin however, is desirable for its fiber content).

Beans: Commercial baked beans with sugar and/or pork added.

Nuts: Avoid nuts. Limit peanuts and walnuts to one tablespoon per day.

Breads & Grains: Any baked goods with shortening and/or sugar. Commercial mixes with dried eggs and whole milk. Avoid sweet rolls, doughnuts, breakfast pastries (Danish), and sweetened packaged cereals (the added sugar converts readily to triglycerides.)

Dairy: Whole milk and whole milk packaged goods; cream, ice cream, whole milk, puddings, yogurts, or cheeses; and non-dairy cream substitutes.

Fats & Oils: Butter, lard, animal fats, bacon drippings, gravies, cream sauces, as well as palm and coconut oils. All these are high in saturated fats. Examine labels on "cholesterol-free" products for "hydrogenated fats". (These are oils that have been hardened into solids and in the process have become saturated.

Desserts & Snacks: Fried snacks foods like potato chips; chocolate; candies in general; jams, jellies, syrups, whole-milk puddings; ice cream and milk sherbets; hydrogenated peanut butter.

Beverages: Sugared fruits and soft drinks; cocoa made with whole milk and sugar. When using alcohol (1oz liquor, 5oz beer, 2 1/2 oz dry table wine per serving), one serving must be substituted for one bread or cereal serving (limit two servings or alcohol per day).

Special Notes:

  1. Remember that even non-limited foods should be used in moderation.
  2. While on a cholesterol-lowing diet, be sure to avoid animal fats and marble meats.
  3. While on a triglyceride-lowering diet, be sure to avoid sweets and to control the amount of carbohydrates you eat, (starchy foods such as flour, bread, and potatoes).
  4. Buy a good low-fat cookbook, such as the one published by the American Heart Association.
  5. Consult your physician if you have any questions.
