In light of a recent article posted on Cleveland Clinic's website, we'll take a look at some of the things you should cut out of your diet altogether. Relax and take in this article while you get some valuable knowledge.
What are some examples of foods that are high in cholesterol and should be avoided?

This is because red meat contains saturated fats, which have been linked to an increased risk of cholesterol buildup, which in turn increases the chance of a stroke and other health problems.
Second, it's not a good idea to regularly eat high-fat dairy products like whole milk, butter, full-fat yogurt, and cheese. The reason is that despite their delicious flavor, eating too much of these foods too often puts you at risk for cholesterol buildup and the health problems associated with high cholesterol.
