Avocados are very alkaline, but have to be used sparingly due to calories. Almonds are the best nuts for an alkaline diet. Salmon is good. EVOO. I healed my psoriasis with an alkaline food plan. It worked for me.

Do your best to make almost your fat intake healthy choices. Give up margarine if you haven't already. Once you get your weight down and can add calories, then will be a great time to add healthy fats.

Best wishes.

I agree with the recommendation of eating more fatty fish like salmon (if you can afford it). Sardines are the slightly more economical choice.

Nuts are also an excellent source of healthy fat as well as protein. You could put a tablespoon of walnuts or almonds on your salads. If nuts seem too high in calorie, then look at seeds like pepitas, pumpkin or sunflower seeds.

I eat seeds regularly. great for snacks as well as on salads. I also like pepitas as a topping on things like carrot or squash soup.

Eating oily fish twice a week has a multitude of benefits, that would be a great place to start.

mackerel, sardines, pilchards, salmon

Oily fish such as sardines, salmon and tuna are excellent sources of healthy oil to help your HDL improve. Nuts are too, particularly walnuts. If you use Walnut Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil, don't use it for hot cooking because heat destroys the benefits. They are best used drizzled over salads. Out of the Olive Oils, Extra Virgin is the one with the most benefits because it is less processed.

If you still have problems, talk with your Dr about Fish Oil Supplements, and/or ask for a referral to a Registered Dietitan. I don't suggest just going and buying the supplements OTC first, because some people with certain health conditions and/or on certain medications can do themselves harm by using them.

Exercise also helps to improve the HDL level.

A few come to mind:
- avocados eat in a salad, or alone with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette dressing
- salmon
- olive oil (perhaps as part of a salad dressing)

I had yet another trip to the doc. The doc told me my bad cholesterol is perfect, but my good cholesterol is too low. They told me to consume more healthy fats so I can increase my healthy cholesterol. I am on an alkaline diet. Any suggestions for incorporating good fats into an alkaline diet. Either cooked or raw. My calorie restriction is set at 1,200 calories per day.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
