    I have had success with lower cholesterol with omega 3,6,9 or fish oil capsules. 1 at bedtime lowered it from 220 to 188. So my dr suggested one in the morn and one at night. Right now I am taking 2 at night but will try to take one in the morning too. HE said if they are hard to take to keep them in the fridge, but I have not had any problem.

    Oh, Hon, I'm so glad ur back! I've been a Sparker for nearly 3 years and I've never gotten to my goal, but I keep trying. Last year I had a gallbladder attack & while waiting 3 months for surgery, I regained nearly all I had lost, BUT I'm back working to get it off and have 4.4# to go and I won't quit. I'm glad to know that you won't either. It is about working each day to eat healthy and to do some exercise. emoticon

    Uctrina, My husbands cholestrol and tryglycerides were off the chart. The Dr. put him on medication but he had bad side effects. The Dr. took him off the medication and told him to eat a teaspoon of cinnamon three times a day. My husband did this very faithfully. In three months his tryglicerides went down by half. After three more months they were reduced to about 2/3 the original amount. He also took magnesium. He has reduced the cinnamon to about a teaspoon a day. His favorite way of taking the cinnamon is stirring it in pudding, applesauce, or hot cereals. Jus a warning, Iit does not dissolve well. They do have cinnamon pills too, but he didn't seem to think they were as effective. His cholestrol was reduced quite a bit also, but he's still working on that. Exercise 5 times a week has been shown to greatly benefit both cholestrol and tryglycerides.
