NUR 1172 How much monounsaturated fat intake is recommended by the therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) diet for lowering serum cholesterol for clients with elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels?

Answer:

According to the therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) diet, clients with elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels should be limited to 5% of their total daily calories from monounsaturated fat.

This recommendation is based on evidence that increasing the amount of monounsaturated fat in the diet can raise HDL levels by up to 15%. This reduction in LDL-cholesterol in turn reduces cardiovascular risk.
