These nine tips can help you lower your cholesterol.

1. Read the label and note the fat grams per serving. Many individual packaged items contain more than one serving, which can add up to extra fat and calories.

2. Increase soluble fiber intake by 5 to 10 grams each day. Include oatmeal, beans, broccoli, oranges and pears in your diet.

3. Eat eggs in moderation.

4. Start your day with a breakfast cereal with 2 grams of soluble fiber and 4 to 6 grams of total fiber.

5. Limit your intake of foods rich in saturated fat. These foods often cause high cholesterol too.

6. Know your sources of trans fat. Check the labels for hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.

7. Include fish, such as salmon or tuna, in your diet twice a week.

8. Choose fats and oils (e.g., canola and olive oils) with 2 grams or less saturated fat per tablespoon.

9. Avoid foods with tropical oils. Instead, look for products that use polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which help lower LDL chlesterol.
