Top 5 Low-Cholesterol Meats

What's the big deal about cholesterol? You've probably heard doctors talk about it, read about it, or had your doctor tell you you have high cholesterol. Unfortunately, this subject is complicated, and there is a lot of disinformation about how to lessen it.

 Chicken breast

Chicken's flexibility and simplicity of preparation are unmatched. Chicken breast has less fat than beef or pork, making it a low-cholesterol, low-fat meat. 

Pork tenderloin

It may surprise some that certain pig slices are lean, well, and low in saturated fats. A 3-ounce meal of delicious pork tenderloin has just 62 mg of ldl and 1 gram of saturated oil.

Ground turkey

Fried chicken and processed deli turkey sandwich meat slices have more saturated fat than other chicken or turkey, so it depends on how it's prepared. 

Bottom round steak

While some studies suggest restricting meat and eating more plant-based foods to benefit your heart, there are cuts of red meat lower in cholesterol and saturated fat that you may enjoy sometimes. 

Lean ground beef

Again, you can usually enjoy beef on a cholesterol-friendly diet, but you just have to be intentional about which type your'e choosing.
