Mediterranian Diet
Nov 27, 2002
... Hello, Thanks so much Klook. This is exactly what I'm looking for. You're the greatest! I would have liked lots of cheese lasagna, wine, and ravioli too. I have found some low-fat ravioli that's pretty and I also like gnocchi, which has only 1 gram of fat. (It's a potato dumpling.)I also have found that if I use the fat-free riccotta and mix it with a little low-fat mozz.,... (10 replies)

Big problems
Nov 26, 2002
... Bill, I have hereditary high cholesterol and a family history of heart problems also. I'm a few years older than you, but otherwise our situations sound similar. (Fortunately I have no blood pressure problems, but I have a hereditary cancer risk also, so I have to pay attention to that.) Based on my experience and research, dietary changes alone won't get your cholesterol... (12 replies)

... Ok to eat complex carbs? Depends. Complex carbs include everything from white bread to spinach. The white bread and other similar products made from refined wheat flour can raise your bloodsugar, and consequently your insulin levels, more than table sugar. Other complex carbs that you are better off avoiding or at least limiting are pasta, rice, potatoes, corn, and most... (6 replies)

... Thanks for the info. By "cutting out carbs (sugars)," do you mean simple carbohydrates? Surely it's OK to keep eating complex carbs. Thanks, Klook (6 replies)
Improved results!

Based on what I've read, the reason HDL is "good" is that it helps your body get rid of surplus cholesterol, removes cholesterol from peripheral tissues, and prevents lipid accumulation in arterial walls. Therefore if your LDL is lower, don't you have a decreased need for HDL? Hmmm...First time I've seen this advice. I think I'll seek... (6 replies)

... Thanks for the insights, Magpie. I'll do as you suggest and pay special attention to my fat intake over the next few days before my test--excluding the birthday quiche, of which I'll eat only a very thin sliver. The junk foods I used to eat were candy bars, high-fat potato chips, French fries, and pizza. Also the occasional donut or piece of cake, and Thai Chicken Tom Kha... (4 replies)

Here are my ratings: 240 - overall 161 - LDL 55 - HDL The doc advised me to exercise more and keep eating a low-fat diet.
