Eating Pork Is That Bad For Cholesterol

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

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.
