  • If I didn't "treat myself" to what I believe is so well I would not be 3 out of the 5 controlled risk factors. In the uncontrolled risk factors I am 2 out of 4. I lean back and forth on my numbers but find when I am working out and eating right, I am right where I should be. I don't have high cholesterol but I guess if I didn't have Sparkpeople I probably would?
  • appreciate the information.
  • Mostly useful info but it could do with updating..
  • OK article. Could be better.
    Tbsp ea Apple Cider Vinegar, honey both not refined in glass water daily lowered my cholesterol 40 pts.
  • A ten-year old article needs to be updated...
  • Valid point about this being an old article. It needs to be updated with current info, especially regarding eggs.
  • My grandparents all died of heart disease but they also eat very high cholesterol diets! My blood work shows no trouble!
  • I've changed all my controllable factors but you can't change genetics....I hate that!!!
  • This is one time when I am happy to know I am the exception to the rule-- I eat a very high fat diet--I never limit butter, heavy cream or eggs; I also eat full fat cheeses and yogurt. Since I started doing this my bad cholesterol went down 90 points and my good cholesterol is 68. When I talked to my Dr about this she said there are many people who have similar results. Talk to your Dr about it and find out for yourself.
  • This is a good article but it is 10 years old. There are some other good articles about EGG YOLKS. MY DH was told he had high Cholesterol and do not eat the yolks for many years we did that.

    He now has MACULAR DEGENERATION.

    In the UK they say there is an epidemic with MACULAR DEGENERATION and eat the yolks. So my Brother in UK and my DH in US started to eat those lovely yolks he missed since the Cardiologist said NO EGG YOLKS. MY DH had to give up driving just 25 miles so I had to drive.
    After we both ate the yolks he went to a check up and now he can drive again it is off the license.
    I was always an EGG LOVER and I never stopped eating Fresh eggs.
    I hope the article will be redone with more information I hope. Pat in Maine.
  • Agree there is a too high number but there is a too low. Remember this is the only food our brain consumes. We are starving it! My holistic Dr. said not to do those numbers. People follow the money on who backed those studies!
