<VERY sympathetic sigh> now, what i'm about to say in no way means that people shouldn't eat healthy whole grains, fruits and vegs... BUT... that genetic component is very strong. and our bodies actually make the cholesterol. in some people, it works overtime, no matter what they eat. their levels are always high.
but often their diet makes the levels go even higher.
so, for all of you eating a heart-healthy diet, keep it up even if you're not seeing the results you think you should. you may actually be preventing even higher levels.
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
