Does cheese increase cholesterol?

 Does cheese increase cholesterol?


Paneer is a favorite dish of vegetarians. Just as meat is dear to others, paneer is to vegetarians. It is a must-have dish in vegetarian kitchens during festivals.



Eating paneer is not only delicious but also beneficial for health. Because it contains nutrients like fat, protein, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium that the body needs.


Considering that it is good for health and sweet in terms of taste, many people eat paneer a lot, but because it is beneficial, you should not eat more than necessary. Because eating too much cheese increases the level of 'bad cholesterol' which harms the body.


how


Due to the high content of fat and protein in paneer, it takes time to digest compared to other vegetables. On top of that, it is customary to grate the paneer and add ghee and twelve spices to eat it. Eating high protein and spicy food on top of that also increases calories.


Therefore, if you eat a lot of cheese dishes, it constantly burdens the digestive power and as a result, problems arise in the digestive process.


If there is no physical exercise, it accumulates in the body and gradually narrows the blood vessels. If the blood vessel shrinks, the cholesterol level will increase, blood pressure may also increase.


Similarly, Bazariya Paneer also contains salt. Which increases sodium consumption. High sodium also increases blood pressure.


If you already have high blood pressure and diabetes, you should not eat more cheese than your body needs. It increases the risk of cholesterol.


An article published in the British Heart Foundation also mentions that cheese is high in saturated fat and salt, which increases cholesterol and blood pressure.


As the level of both of these increases, heart disease can also increase, so the foundation recommends that cheese should be cooked in a healthy way and eaten in limited quantities.


So what are the limitations of cheese?


Food that benefits our body does not have to be eaten full. Even if you eat a little, you will get enough nutrition.


Be it cheese or other protein foods, if we eat as much as we do, we do physical activity accordingly, then the food will be digested. But if we don't work, we eat a lot, even limited food can cause digestive problems.


Generally, a healthy person can eat 200 grams of paneer daily for nutrition. If you eat this much, your body will get the same amount of protein as meat.


Nutrients found in paneer


Lactose is less in paneer. It is rich in fat, protein, calcium, vitamins, phosphorus and minerals.


Apart from this, vitamins A, B12, B9, B7, B6, B5, B3, B2 can also be found in some amount of cheese.


You also need to know how to eat


Paneer is high in protein so it can be eaten in the morning and afternoon. It is advisable not to include protein in dinner as much as possible. As the evening progresses, the digestive capacity of the body slows down and it becomes difficult for the stomach to digest heavy food.


As far as how to eat? It is said that, instead of grating the cheese, it can be cooked fresh by mixing it with vegetables or other vegetables with less spices or putting it inside roti, paratha.


Many people may not know that cheese is delicious and healthy when grated into a salad or eaten with two or three pieces of cheese mixed with lemon and salt according to taste.


Not only cholesterol, other health problems also appear if you eat more than the limit.


Kidney stones


Paneer is rich in calcium. Which is beneficial for bones. But if you eat too much, it can cause kidney stones. The National Kidney Foundation recommends not eating more than 1,000 to 1,200 grams of calcium a day.


flatulence


If you eat more cheese than you need, you will not be able to digest it. Since paneer contains a lot of protein, if it takes time to digest, its consumption may cause flatulence or acidity.


Constipation and diarrhea


Constipation or diarrhea may occur if you eat too much cheese. Eating spicy paneer in the evening can cause diarrhea because digestion cannot work.

7 foods that increase good cholesterol in the body

7 foods that increase good cholesterol in the body


A fat-like substance produced by the liver in the body is called cholesterol. Cholesterol is necessary for vitamin D, digestion and the production of many hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and aldosterone. The amount of cholesterol in the body should be appropriate for various physical activities. Having cholesterol in the body is not dangerous, but increasing bad cholesterol is bad.



Cholesterol is mainly of two types 'HDL' and 'LDL'. High-density lipoprotein or 'HDL' is considered good cholesterol. It is believed to help remove blockages in our arteries and helps flush out bad cholesterol. Another is low-density lipoprotein or 'LDL', the bad cholesterol, which clogs arteries and increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes.


Bad cholesterol increases the risk of heart disease, while good cholesterol indirectly protects against the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.


Why does bad cholesterol increase?


Due to hereditary reasons, unhealthy lifestyle, excessive consumption of processed foods and people with heart disease, obesity, cholesterol can be a problem. A study by the US government agency CDC "Center for Disease Control and Prevention" said that to reduce bad cholesterol, you need to change your diet and lifestyle.


Bad cholesterol is raised by trans fats, which are high in packaged foods. Saturated fat from various animal meats, fried and processed foods etc. increases bad cholesterol. Processed foods, foods high in carbohydrates and snacks eaten while drinking alcohol also increase bad cholesterol.


Foods that increase good cholesterol


Just as diet is responsible for increasing bad cholesterol in the body, food also plays a role in increasing good cholesterol. If the bad cholesterol is reduced, the good cholesterol will automatically increase in our body. Also, good cholesterol can be increased by eating certain foods.


Mainly 6 foods are beneficial to increase good cholesterol. Nuts, almonds, walnuts, almonds, fish, avocados, olive oil and oats help increase good cholesterol.
