Step 3: The four UCLP© foods

In step 1 of the UCLP© we asked you to consider your reasons for making dietary changes and to keep a diet diary. In step 2 we reflected on your current eating pattern and explored the UCLP© foundation diet. If you have made all the changes needed to improve your eating habits in step 2, and are confident that you can easily maintain them, then now is the time to move onto step 3 of the UCLP©.

Which food will you choose?

There are four UCLP© foods that you can add to your plan. All will help you towards your goal of achieving and maintaining a healthy cholesterol level. Have a look at each option and our suggestions of how to incorporate them into your day. Decide which you would like to add to your healthy foundation diet first. Over time you can adopt one, two, three or all four of them.

Whichever UCLP© cholesterol-busting food you choose it will help lower your cholesterol further, and the great news is that the more you adopt the more you can lower your cholesterol. It’s best to take one at a time and build up slowly.
