Adding 5 to 10 grams of soluble fiber to a diet is a simple way to help lower high levels of cholesterol. Soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream. Oatmeal, apples, pears, kidney beans and barley are all examples of foods that contain soluble fiber. Eating 1.5 cups of oatmeal provides about 6 grams of soluble fiber, and topping oatmeal with fruit can add an additional 4 grams.
