Your right about the starving thing, it will not help anything. My old dr. told me eating 4 or 5 small meals a day is better then starving all day and then having a huge dinner. He also suggested if possible, to eat the largest meal early evening, like 4 p.m. as your cholesterol manufactures more at nite.

Now I eat my oatmeal in the a.m., after my 2 cups of coffee, gotta have them. :D About 1 p.m. I have a small sandwich, tuna or at times peanut butter, with a piece of fruit, then we eat dinner about 5. Like U, I also drink plenty of water or even iced tea most of the day, once in awhile a can of Sprite or 7 UP at nite. Neither of us nibble after dinner, if I get a bit hungry I usually have a bowl of Cheerios. When we have meat, it is lean and always baked or broiled, never fried. One nite a week we have pasta. We have both talked to our drs. and they feel we eat fine, and we don't lie to them, as we want input if we are doing something wrong.

As far as my numbers, here are the last 2, neither of wich I was happy with, but especially the last one. Worst I have EVER seen them. Normally my HDL is in the high 50's to mid 60's. Only other thing they said was my Thyroid was a bit underactive, but I have been told that for over 25 years???? Oh well, just have to see how it goes in May, hopefully ALOT better.
