low-cholesterol diet

low-cholesterol diet

a diet that restricts foods containing animal fats and saturated fatty acids, including egg yolk, cream, butter, milk, muscle and organ meats, and shellfish. It concentrates instead on poultry, fish, vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, and polyunsaturated fats. The diet is indicated for persons with high serum cholesterol levels, cardiovascular disorders, obesity, hyperlipidemia, hypercholesterolemia, or hyperlipoproteinemia. Also called cholesterol-restricted diet. See also low-saturated-fat diet.
