Dietary cholesterol is a fat-like substance found in animal-based foods, including meat, egg yolks, fish, poultry, milk and milk products. The amount of cholesterol a person eats can impact blood cholesterol levels. Interestingly, foods from plants contain no cholesterol.

A balanced low-cholesterol diet should include a variety of whole- and multi-grain foods, low-fat/fat-free dairy products, fruits and vegetables. Fatty fishes and foods high in omega-3 fatty acids are also recommended. Heart health experts suggest avoiding or limiting animal products high in saturated fat, fried foods, high-fat processed meats and saturated oils.
