    High blood cholesterol and triglycerides can be lowered by diet, exercise and statin drugs. 80% of cholesterol is synthesized in the liver. 20% of cholesterol comes from your diet.
    Adopt DASH diet (Mediterranean diet). Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet, which includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish, vegetables, poultry, and egg whites. Use monounsaturated oils such as olive, peanut, and canola oils or polyunsaturated oils such as corn, safflower, soy, sunflower, cottonseed, and soybean oils. Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.

    Atkins – it’s a great way of controlling cholesterol and blood pressure numbers. And the food’s good stuff. What you quit eating is the junk food. Plenty of people control their cholesterol with Atkins.

    Get a used copy of "New Diet Revolution" off of Amazon Books. Atkins can walk you through how the deal work. Don’t fall for the cholesterol scam – if doctors had their wish, everybody in the US would be on cholesterol "medication"…. it’s bad science – but it makes the drug manufacturers so much money they can’t count it.
