One in two of French people never detected cholesterol or did so long ago, according to a survey on the occasion of a screening and information campaign held from May 2 to 5, 2011, in five cities of metropolitan France. Free testing, counseling doctors and dietitians, educational workshops on nutrition, recipes, quizzes, will be hosted in Nantes, Marseille, Lille, Strasbourg and Paris, the tour of a truck named “cholesterols, one minute to learn”, organized by New French Society of Atherosclerosis (NFSA) and a food giant, Unilever.
More than one in three French people think, wrongly, that there are signs of excess cholesterol. Most often there are no obvious symptoms and excessive blood cholesterol can only be detected from cardiovascular risk factors (myocardial infarction, stroke etc.).
One of the objectives of the management of cardiovascular risk factors is to reduce the level of “bad” cholesterol (LDL cholesterol), the vast majority of French respondents are aware of this, according to an IFOP survey in February 2011, among a representative sample of 1007 people. Using a diet designed by Nutrisystem can ensure you have nothing to worry about when it comes to bad cholesterol. A good Nutrisystem coupon code is not hard to find either.
For 62% of the French, anti-cholesterol diet rhymes with fat suppression. A certainty that reflects a form of confusion, because the body needs some fat. Nutrisystem is not only concerned with the cosmetic benefits of losing weight. Nutrisystem is designed to make you healthier overall. Apart from hereditary cases (family hypercholesterolemia), improving your diet and lifestyle can help prevent high cholesterol.
Nutrisystem believes moderation is key and also the quality of food we eat. We should in this regard limit the intake of saturated animal fats (meats, fatty meats, butter etc.) and instead consume more omega 3 (found in fish, canola oil etc.), more fruits and vegetables, have regular physical activity (e.g. 30 minutes of walking a day) and if needed to lose weight. In addition, eating sugars that are absorbed by the body too fast (such as those found in soft drinks) promotes decrease in good cholesterol.
