11 Foods That Are Dangerously Increasing Your Cholesterol

11 Foods That Are Dangerously Increasing Your Cholesterol

Hey there! You’ve heard it since you were younger. “Too many eggs are bad for you!” Did you know that an estimated 40% of adults
in the U.S. have high cholesterol? That’s over 94 million people. As you get older, your cholesterol level is
definitely something you need to consider. Even if it isn’t all that bad, high cholesterol
has been linked to heart disease. Let’s talk 11 Foods That Are Increasing
Your Cholesterol. How many eggs should I have in a serving? You mean I have to cut sardines? Is there such a thing as “good” cholesterol? We’re talking all that AND more! Sardines To all of you fish enthusiasts, this may come
as a rude awakening. First, let’s get it out of the way. When it comes to nutrients, sardines are one
heck of a rich source. They are high in iron, selenium, phosphorus,
magnesium and Vitamin E. But they also carry a rather large amount of cholesterol. The average person is recommended no more
than 300 mg of cholesterol per day. A 3-ounce serving of sardines contains 121
mg. Compare that to 3 ounces of boneless tuna
which carries just 39 mg of cholesterol, and is another healthy source of nutrients including
Omega-3 fatty acids, protein and vitamin D. 2. Eggs When people think cholesterol, the image of
an egg is probably the first thing that pops into their heads. If we’re being honest, it’s no wonder. One large egg can contain as much as 212 mg. But is it really all that bad? Cholesterol is an essential part of each of
your cell’s membranes. It’s also essential to estrogen, testosterone
and cortisol. With that being said, an eggs cholesterol
is located within the yolk. If you happen to be watching your cholesterol
level, try your best to eat egg whites only. Mixed with iodine, folate and Vitamins A,
B and D, eggs are extremely beneficial to your health.If a full grown healthy adult
is to eat 3 eggs in a day, it is unlikely that the cholesterol will cause any damage
to the heart. 3. Butter Just a heads up. This list is going pretty hard on the dairy
products. To all you milk junkies, you’ve been warned. Butter is heavy in fat and is a major culprit
in both weight gain and heart disease. Just so you know, we’re going to be mentioning
a lot of dairy products on this list, so buckle up. Did you know that just a single tablespoon
contains 31 grams of cholesterol and 7.5 grams of saturated fat? Saturated fat can increase your cholesterol
level. The average adult is recommended no more than
13 g of saturated fat per day. Anyone who has eaten a big breakfast would
know that it is easy to lose track of how much butter you’ve had. A couple of tablespoons can put you over your
recommended daily intake. If you have high cholesterol, it may be wise
to watch just how much butter you’re eating, or try to avoid butter entirely. 4. Hot Dogs If you consume your fair share of junk food,
you may want to take note. Hot dogs are loaded with not only cholesterol,
but saturated fats and sodium as well. If we’re going to break it down, one hot
dog contains about 390 mg of sodium and 4 grams of saturated fat that can cause your
cholesterol levels to sky rocket. You may want to beware the next time you head
out to the ball game. Speaking of junk food, if you’re looking

I? Come on, if you were unaware that bacon isn’t
the healthiest choice, I’m not sure what to tell you. Bacon carries around 28% of protein. While it is okay to have every once in a while,
it’s easy to overdo your quantity of consumption. When it comes to saturated fats, bacon can
be your hearts worst nightmare. Did you know that 40% of bacon is comprised
of saturated fats? As for cholesterol, just one slice measures
up to about 6mg of cholesterol. I’m not sure about you, but when it comes
to Sunday breakfast, one measly slice isn’t gonna tide me over. If you consume five or six slices in a serving,
that’s about 36 mg of cholesterol, 12% of your daily intake. While it may not seem like the end of the
world, try adding eggs to the mix. Remember how one large egg can contain around
212 mg? Since bacon is usually eaten with a side of
eggs, your cholesterol can skyrocket. 6. Ice Cream Oh, the humanity! Brace yourself, because I’m about to ruin
one of your favourite summer treats. You ready for this? A single cup of ice cream can contain 44%
of your daily saturated fat intake. It also includes about 53 mg of cholesterol. That’s right, this simple outdoor snack
eaten between lunch and dinner carries 18% of your daily cholesterol intake. Let’s put it into perspective for a second. There is more saturated fat in one cup of
ice cream let there is in a whole hamburger. Don’t feel guilty we all eat ice cream. I mean, at least it would seem that way. Did you know that in 2007, over 1.5 BILLION
gallons of ice cream were produced in the U.S. alone? Fast forward over a decade and not much has
changed. Ice cream is currently being stored in an
estimated 90% of American households. 7. Cheese If you happen to be a fan of cheese dogs,
or your bacon with a cheese omelette, please stand by for this startling info. Two of the most popular types of cheese are
loaded with cholesterol. A single cup of cheddar is measured at around
131 mg of cholesterol. A single cup of Swiss cheese contains about
123. But it doesn’t end there. Cheese such as American, Mozzarella and Parmesan
are also not far behind. While it’s a given at this point that you
should be watching your cholesterol, cheese, much like eggs, can be healthy when eaten
in moderation. It is a rich source of protein, calcium, zinc
and Vitamin A. These nutrients can help strengthen your bones and teeth. 8. Donuts Before you line up at the coffee shop for
your morning snack, consider this. The average donut carries 11% of your daily
intake of saturated fats. Not to mention 10 mg of cholesterol. If you make that donut glazed, you’re looking
at an extra 4 mg. Heaven forbid you eat more than one donut
for breakfast. That is one unhealthy way to start your day. Add a hot dog and a cup of ice cream, your
body will not be thanking you later. 9. Chicken Wings Keeping with the theme of ruining your weekend
meals, chicken wings are also especially high on the cholesterol. What makes it worse is how easy it is to lose
track of how many you have eaten. Just one chicken wing is an estimated 27 mg. Have you ever gone for the discount wing night
at your local bar? Their prices are hypnotizing. So hypnotizing in fact, you’ll eat 2 pounds
worth of chicken wings in a single sitting! Say two pounds contains 20 wings. You could be consuming as much as 540 mg of
cholesterol. Add beer and french fries into the mix, and
you’ve created a recipe for disaster. At least that’s how your heart considers
it. 10. Crabs It’s been a while since we’ve seen a seafood
on the list. Keep in mind, unless you live close to an
ocean, the appearance of crab on your plate is probably a rare one. But just in case you’ve been catching up
on your shellfish consumption, here’s a quick runthrough. 1 medium crab adds up to about 96 mg of cholesterol. 11. Caviar No this isn’t a joke. If you happen to find yourself in a fine-dining
establishment, this maybe something you would like to know. This also continues the topic of seafood. Caviar is essentially fish eggs. While this may seem a little unpleasant to
many of us, it is seen as a delicacy to many others. Before you slather it on a cracker and try
it yourself, you need to know that a single tablespoon carries just around 94 mg of cholesterol. So happy dining to you and yours! Are you concerned about your cholesterol? Would you be willing to give up any of these

  5. This is rather out-of-date. "Dietary cholesterol has only minimal effects on blood cholesterol. More importantly, it has absolutely no link with the risk of heart disease.
    The truth is that most of the foods that are high in cholesterol are also super healthy and nutritious." (healthline dot com) All my research shows that eating cholesterol in and of itself does not lead to heart disease. Eating foods that cause inflammation, which in turn causes cholesterol (a basic building block of our cells) to stick to the inflammation, is what not to do. I've been doing keto since January. I've lost 40 lbs of fat. My blood pressure is down from 150s over 90s to 120s over 80s. I eat a lot of sardines. I avoid saturated fats and eat almost no sweets at all.

  6. BOLONEY PURE FICTION your Body produces the cholesterol Ive proven it as oi went one month doing ultral low fat food and my LDL didnt budge an inch

  7. 11 Foods that increase your Cholesterol::Sardines,Eggs,Butter,Hot Dogs,Bacon,Ice Cream ice 🍦,Cheese. 🧀,Donuts 🍩,Chicken Wings,Crabs 🦀,Cavair,………..

  8. I do occasionally have ice cream in the summer and occasionally have cheese, but I never eat any of the other things on this list. Yet I am on medication for high cholesterol. Go figure,

  9. I've been on a Keto diet for over a year, my cholesterol is at the lowest point it has ever been. High cholesterol isn't bad, it's the triglycerides that are the problem and that's caused by sugar and carbohydrates, and bad fats. It's not cholesterol that will kill you, it's the other decisions you make in your diet and lifestyle.

  10. If that's the truth the what is the essential food to eat? Shall we not eat anymore coz all the foods we want to are all dangerous? So there' s no healthy food anymore isn't it?

  11. It's really easy to give up all of the foods in this video as most of them are garbage food anyway and as an adult we should know better.   If not, enjoy being FAT and having trouble getting up from the table !!!

  12. 1. Sardines
    2. Eggs
    3. Butter
    4. Hot dogs
    5. Bacon
    6. Ice cream
    7. Cheess
    8. Donuts
    9. Chicken wings
    10. Crab
    11. Caviar

  13. This video is bullshit, possible the worst b.s. I have ever seen.
    Cholesterol is Ok it's sugar that's the bad guy.
    Eat as many eggs as you wish.
    Never seen such nonsense.

  14. Foods High in saturated fat can only be a problem if you combined them with high carb & high sugary foods. It has something to do with Insulin. If you combined high fat plus high in sugar or high carbs the insulin will go sky rocketly high about trice as much compared to only high sugar or high carb foods.

  15. I know ice cream is bad for the cholesterol. My cholesterol went up after an ice cream orgie. 😣
    Cheese and eggs are not good for the cholesterol levels either. I know. Because I struggle with my cholesterol.
    And my doctor gave me a list of food to avoid. This video is not wrong. I'm subscribing 😊

  16. Traditional cholesterol bullshit.
    Liver controls cholesterol level only.
    Alcohol, fructose make liver to produce the dangerous kind of LDL what is VLDL, the smallest LDL. And transfet the other harmful fat… that's all.

  17. High cholesterol levels come from processed foods and consumption of grains and sugar and processed oils. What harmful advice to give about egg white and don’t eat the yolk. Experiments have been done and none of the participants had an increase in their cholesterol levels. I could go on.
