High Cholesterol Board Index


[QUOTE=joelchicago]OK, so I've made the effort to do better. I've lost 25-30 lbs in the past 1.5 years through diet changes. I eat only whole grain pasta and breads, only sweet potatoes. I eat less sugar than ever (and 1/10 the ice cream which puts me at once a month or so). My triglycerides have dropped about 10 points but are still 167. My HDL 1 year ago was 37. Today it was 33. HUH? Total cholesterol is 166, so the ratio is pretty bad (actually it has gone up since the last reading slightly).[/QUOTE]

I've been religiously following a diet targeting Insulin Resistance, published by the UCLA Arthur Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center, created by Sheri Barke, MPH, RD:

It's a difficult diet consisting of small frequent meals of low calories and high fiber. I started it in December 2004. My triglycerides have fallen by 50%, my LDL has fallen by 24% and my HDL has risen by about 13% and my weight has fallen by about 17% and I feel much better than I did. I am not taking any Cholesterol meds or supplements.
