High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

When I was foolishly following the AHA "Heart Healthy" diet I ate only complex carbohydrates and limited the fat in my diet to no more then 10%-15% of calories. I gained weight, my TC was over 250, my HDL was dangerously low and my triglycerides were over 600.

If you are taking statins your reduction in cholesterol/lipid levels don't mean much in relation to your intake of dietary fat. For most people dietary fat has a minimal impact on serum cholesterol levels. You can't compare a high fat diet to low fat diet if you are taking statins.
