Primarily the processing - if you look at the ingredients on most fat-free products you'll see ingredients added. I had switched to moderate amounts of full-fat dairy, based on some recent research, but that was before I got the cholesterol results. I'll probably be substituting an organic fat-free Greek yogurt for all that cottage cheese in my plan. I try to eat natural, non-processed foods, but the one concession I'm willing to make is margarine with plant sterols. Of course, I haven't met with my ND since the labs came back.

Welcome to the team. I guess my question what part of the non-fat dairy, does your naturopath discourage. Is it that it is dairy, in the first place, or is it the 'non fat' description?

Welcome,
I can not answer your question regading naturapath (I hope I spelled it right) I have a problem with cholesterol and have had a few successes there. Perhaps someone will be able to help you with your concern.
I wish you a wonderful new year.

Voicemail from my FNP yesterday: 261, the LDL is 161 and she wants me on meds. Doing what I can over the long weekend - joined a gym, trying to educate myself, but I'm going to wait until I see the naturopath to start any supplements. Lots of good info here! One question: my revised Sparkpeople diet includes lots of non-fat dairy products, which my naturopath discourages. What do the members here think?

Thanks for being here!
