The Hairy Bikers & Benecol have teamed up to launch
Switch to Wonderful!
Well known for their love of hearty, home cooked meals, Si King and Dave Myers, aka The Hairy Bikers have teamed up with Benecol to highlight the importance of lowering cholesterol and maintaining a healthy diet.
According to HEART UK, over half of all adults in the UK have raised cholesterol, which is a major risk factor for the development of coronary heart disease.
Together with Benecol, the Hairy Bikers are on a mission to encourage people across the UK to Switch to Wonderful – helping them to make small, everyday switches to lower cholesterol and make their hearts happy - demonstrating that a balanced diet can still mean delicious food!
Keep your eyes out for the Hairy Bikers sharing a selection of delicious recipes and Switch Tips across social media and this site!
“We’ve made some big changes to shape up and now we’re focussing on simple switches to maintain our health into the future. Switching certain ingredients or foods to help lower your cholesterol can be simple, and it can certainly still be delicious.”
– Si & Dave, The Hairy Bikers
Tip: Making simple switches means you don’t have to make big changes to your diet or lifestyle. Simply switching your normal butter for a Benecol spread which contains cholesterol-lowering plant stanols is a great way to help reduce cholesterol levels!
