Hi David,

>>Are there any vegan foods to avoid because they raise LDL.

Yes. There are many vegan foods that are high in saturated fats. These include coconut, chocolate and the tropical oils, which are coconut, palm, palm kernel, and cocoa butter. These oils are showing up in many vegan packaged/processed foods and some are being marketed, even as health foods, on their own.

Look your diet over and make sure there are none of these hidden in your diet.

>>Are there any vegan foods to eat more often because they lower LDL?

Foods high in soluble fiber can help reduce LDL cholesterol. A simple way to remember the foods which are highest in soluble fiber is with the acronym BYOB(B)

B= Beans
Y- Yams
O= Oats
B= Barely
B= Berries

In Health
Jeff
