I agree with you PJ, it has been a problem with me to increase my HDL. I am continuing to work on it.

The suggestions given would be to lower LDL, and help increase HDL. I know that Olive Oil is good for healthier numbers, and exercise is always a benefit to bringing up HDL and lower LDL. I would hope that this was a typo because some people do get confused, but increasing the HDL is a problem for so many people as well.

I think the member got the letters confused. We always want to raise HDL numbers and lower LDL numbers. Sometimes it is easy to get confused.

That's what IS... I would really like to hear back from the originator of this thread, I think he/she might have mis-interpreted the doctor.

?????

Huh? Your HDL is too HIGH? Wow.
Mine is too low, everything else is coming into shape. I use olive oil,peanuts,and I subtitute peas and beans for meat and I exercise. But had no CLUE that it would lower my HDL. instead of my LDL like it is supposed to. Now I am totally confused. Does anyone think something is a little bit 'off' here?

I have used Olive Oil for years, never heard that peanuts, but know that nuts in general starting with walnuts, pecans, brazil nuts, and pistachios are good for you. Legumes are also good, and also using organic vinegars with the sediments (called the mother) are also very beneficial. Exercise is always good but it's the strength part that has the most impact.

Thanks for sharing.

I went to the Doctor and she gave me a list of foods that lower HDL Cholesterol

Here it is:

Olive Oil
Olives
Peanuts
Exercise
Substituting peas and beans for meats

Just thought I would let everyone know what she said. My cholesterol was high and she was concerned about me.
