Want to lower your cholesterol so fast it'll make your head spin? It's a breeze, just eat guacamole—or any dish containing avocados!
Most health experts and nutritionists will tell you this rich, delicious Mexican dish is BANNED from any cholesterol-watcher's menu. But not Dr. Steven Pratt. That's because new research shows eating avocados can lower your cholesterol even faster than drugs... without the side effects!
One study found after just 7 days on a diet including avocados, LDL ("bad") cholesterol and triglyceride levels dropped by 22 percent. Meanwhile, HDL ("good") cholesterol shot up 11 percent—something most cholesterol-lowering drugs won't do!
But for best results, you must choose this buttery tasting variety of avocado.
Only 2 grams saturated fat per serving!
• 6 avocados (brand named on page 165 of your FREE-Preview copy)
• ½ teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
• 1 ½ teaspoons lime juice
• ½ teaspoon (8 to 10 dashes) Tabasco®
• 2 ½ tablespoons finely minced onion
• ¼ to ½ cup chopped cilantro
• ½ teaspoon seasoned salt, such as Lawry's®
• 3 plum tomatoes, diced
Scoop the avocados into a bowl and add the ingredients in the order given. Mix with a fork after each addition (do not overmix) so that the guacamole remains chunky. Makes 12 delicious servings!
Slash your heart attack risk by more than half—by eating nuts? Yes, according to Dr. Steven Pratt. Even if you're overweight, smoke, never get off your sofa, and eat 5 fast-food meals a week, he says you can cut your risk of heart attack by up to 51 percent without even taking your hand off the remote!
