::Eating more nuts and oats – rather than simply avoiding fatty foods – could boost efforts to reduce cholesterol, say scientists.
They found a diet rich in foods known to lower cholesterol levels was more effective than cutting out saturated fats alone.
The diet that worked best in the study also included soy products such as milk, tofu and meat substitutes, while eating more peas, beans and lentils was encouraged.
Canadian researchers discovered that a six-month change to the diet could result in a ‘meaningful’ 13 per cent reduction in blood levels of LDL cholesterol, often known as ‘bad’ cholesterol.
Following the diet for longer would give a predicted reduction of almost 11 per cent in heart disease risk over a ten-year period.
In the study, 345 patients, all of whom suffered from high cholesterol, were split into three groups, one of which was merely recommended to adopt a low-fat diet that included fruit and vegetables.

The other two were advised on a dietary ‘portfolio’ consisting of specific foods known to lower LDL cholesterol such as nuts, oats, soy products and lentils.
One group was counselled during two clinic visits while the other underwent an ‘intensive’ course of seven visits.
After six months the low-fat group had experienced a drop in LDL cholesterol levels of 3 per cent.
However, switching to a diet that actively lowered LDL cholesterol led to a reduction of over 13 per cent: 13.1 per cent in the group that had two visits and 13.8 per cent for the group that had seven visits.
No quick fix: Eating a few nuts or the odd portion of soya beans won't make up for an otherwise poor diet
The researchers, led by Dr David Jenkins, from the University of Toronto, reported their findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The scientists pointed out that the study participants were already on modified diets aimed at improving their cholesterol readings.
Larger reductions in LDL cholesterol might be seen in people with diets ‘more reflective of the general population’, they said.
Victoria Taylor, senior heart health dietician at the British Heart Foundation, said: ‘This study is encouraging.
‘However, people need to be aware that following this type of plan in the long term takes commitment.
Eating a few nuts or having the odd portion of soya beans won’t make up for an otherwise poor diet.
‘All the people in this trial were already eating a low-saturated fat diet, and this remains our first and foremost advice to people who want or need to reduce their cholesterol.’
