    Pork is not bad for your cholesterol, but you do need to pay attention to the cut of pork you select.  Here is a list of leaner pork choices.  The leanest is listed first.

     

    Tenderloin

    Boneless sirloin chop

    Boneless loin roast

    Boneless top loin chop

    Loin chop

    Boneless sirloin roast

    Rib Chop

    Boneless rib roast

    Now, you do need to use your head when it comes to bacon.  Obviously not a heart healthy choice.  If you like bacon, give turkey bacon a try and limit how often you have it.
