St. Anthony offers low-cholesterol diet class

Presented by the registered dietitians of OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, a free one-session class called “Eating to Lower Your Cholesterol” will explore the basics of a low-saturated fat, high-fiber eating plan.

The next class will be offered from 4 to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the OSF Saint Anthony Center for Health, 5510 E. State St., Rockford.

During the class, a dietitian will evaluate the participants’ current eating pattern and make recommendations for changes that will help them meet their goals of cholesterol reduction. A plan for putting the recommendations into practice will be developed according to the individual’s needs. Participants receive written materials explaining the eating plan as well as some recipes to try at home.

Registration by calling 815-395-5025 is required. Space is limited.
