I used to weigh 93 kilos 6 months ago and my cholesterol was 7.4 I decided to go on a weight lose plan and use plant sterols supplements .. i have lost 16 kilos I now weigh 77 kilos..my total cholesterol is 6.7 and tyrglicerides is 1.7 (used to be 2.3) they forgot to measure HDL and LDL (DOH!) ...is this a good reduction? I still eat animal fats every day (I refuse to be vegetarian) I eat salmon 3 times a week, chicken and lamb on other days and 4 eggs a week ... can I reduce the cholesterol even more by having a few vegetarian meals instead of the meat or chicken? Im eating salmon to increase my HDL. I absolutely refuse to take statins.
