Mine used to be 246 and now it is below 200 and the ratios of bad to good cholesterol are good. I think part of it is the healthy foods like oatmeal and part of it is staying away from the saturated and trans fats. The olive oil and canola oil boost the good cholesterol. I'm just glad that I don't have to take cholesterol medicine which is what my doctor was threatening when I started this over 2 years ago.
