When trying to lower your cholesterol, fish as a source of protein makes for a healthy choice, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Canned tuna packed in oil is low in cholesterol, with 13 to 18 milligrams per 3.5-ounce serving. Cooked monkfish and smoked Chinook salmon are also low-cholesterol fish choices with 32 and 23 milligrams, respectively, per 3.5-ounce serving. Pork also has its share of low-cholesterol meat choices.

Although it's high in sodium, ham is a lean cut of meat. Depending on the type of ham you choose, the amount of cholesterol in a 3.5-ounce portion ranges from 38 to 53 milligrams. Pork tenderloin is also a low-cholesterol choice, with 48 milligrams in a 3.5-ounce uncooked serving. You can also enjoy boneless pork chops with 47 milligrams of cholesterol in the same serving size.
