Research is showing that oatmeal, which is high in soluble (dissolves in water) fiber, slows the absorption of cholesterol and produces a feeling of fullness. According to professors of nutrition science and policy at Tufts University in Boston, “With 2 grams of soluble fiber per cup in rolled or quick oats, oatmeal has been shown to decrease LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol levels.”
Other soluble fiber-rich foods include lima beans, Brussels sprouts, and pears.
