I have been watching my diet as well as being more active and getting more exercise for the past year and it has helped to bring my cholesterol back down. It was not too high, but had been slowly climbing for the past few years. As of my last blood work my cholesterol numbers are much much better and my blood pressure is coming down as well. So far, so good and I hope to keep it that way and not have to start taking any medications for either the cholesterol or blood pressure

To lower my cholesterol I changed up some foods in my diet:

heart healthy Smart Balance oil, margarine spread w/ olive oil
switched to Morning Star no cholesterol products
use only Egg substitute products
do eat ground meat but only if 93% lean!
eat more fish
substitute meat with Tofu products
substitute meat with beans, lentils 1-2 meals a week

Increased fiber intake

I went from cholesterol >280 to under 200! in less than a year

I am trying to use diet and exercise to control my cholesterol. Eating less meat and more vegetables and fruit. Also oatmeal and whole grains and I am taking fish oil supplements to lower my triglycerides, I go back in August to get tested hopefully the numbers will be better. I am quite honesty afraid of the medicines.

Is anyone trying diet to control cholesterol, and what do you eat?

I hope the kids learn as much from me as I do them.
