...and found out my cholesterol is 118! And my ldl is 61! (hdl is 47).
Last year it wasn't bad - 159. But I'm excited that I lowered it by 41 points to 118 by diet alone and without any statin drugs to do the job! A few years ago it was 200 so that is a big improvement!

Great job! No statin can match that for efficacy and safety!
While adopting this diet and lifestyle program I have reversed my heart disease, high cholesterol, hypertension, and lost 54 lbs. You can follow my story at http://www.drmcdougall.com/star.html

Wow! Fabulous news. I am curious -- what was your HDL when your cholesterol was 200? My HDL stays at about 46 regardless of my weight, diet (so far), and exercise level. I am the poster child for good HDL in terms of what "they" say you should do to have healthy HDL levels - but it stays the same. My TC hasn't dropped below 200 either....well, yet! : )
