YES it is possible to lower cholesterol: I have done that twice. The reason for the second time.....I let things slide, but I only made 2 changes that time and had my numbers down in 6 weeks.
I would like to suggest; fat free cheese....or very low 5-7% milk fat. 1% milk or skim, margarine that says non-hydrogenated oil, egg white omlet and egg white french toast (cinnamon and ED Smith, No Sugar Added Syrup)mmmmmmmmm good[30 calories, 0g fat, 75mg sodium, 7g Carbohydrate, sugar 6g, protein 0g.

Hi everyone I just found this site a couple of weeks ago and found it extremely helpful in tracking what I eat. My goal is to lower my cholesterol by diet change rather than go on medication. The doctor didn't set a deadline but intimated I have 6 months to make a dent in my readings! I'd love to know the experience of others. Is it possible to reduce the levels by diet or are some of us destined to have high cholesterol?
I'm strong willed so am confident of staying away from biscuits, cakes, ice cream and chocolate! The highest sat fat reading for the first two weeks has been 18g and all the other main categories have been hitting the targets. My weight is fine and I'm pretty active so I can still eat well but just more carefully.
Good luck to everyone else out there, whatever your goals! Rob
