[QUOTE=gop]Actually I am not overweight. Weigh about 130 lbs (ht is 164 inches).
So, I guess my high cholesterol is not due to my diet, not due to
physical inactivity, not due to overweight. It must be my liver is producing
too much cholesterol.

I thought Policosanol (that derived from sugarcane, not the bees wax)
one reduces LDL. I have seen results of research studies. Are all these
incorrect?

How about trying Cherios or Oatmeal or Soy milk every day?
I would like to take satin as a last result.[/QUOTE]


Definitely try the oatmeal and also try taking a 1/4 to a 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon each day. 3 months ago I started drinking about 8 cups of green tea a day, plus a 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon, and my TC went from 239 to 198 and LDL went from 161 to 126. Maybe it was a fluke, as I have never had numbers that low, but it is worth a try. I also switched from regular American cheese to low fat cottage cheese, and eat a container of Columbo low fat or fat free yogurt at nite as a snack. I am, and always have been a big cheese fan, so that is why I switched to the cottage cheese, as I love it anyway. I also upped my vitamin C to 1,000 mgs. from 500 mg. a day.

Good luck.... :wave:

Hey JJ - those are great improvements!!! Congratulations!!!

What type of green tea do you take? Can you just buy any green tea - or is there something special you have to look for?

I've been away on vacation for a few weeks around the Lake George NY area - it was gorgeous!!! Mentally I'm still there...
