Friendly Fats

Avocados, nuts, olives, and seeds—even if you have high cholesterol, don’t give ‘em up.

In case you haven’t quite gotten the whole fat thing down yet, unsaturated fats are your friends when it comes to lowering bad LDL cholesterol and raising good HDL cholesterol. So if your salad looks a little dull tonight, make your stomach and your arteries happy: toss in some walnuts, sunflower seeds, or avocado and use a dressing made with olive oil. Then, eat up.
