    My cholesterol was a little high after a blood test, however no plaque in my arteries so that is good. This can lead to heart disease, and although I have no signs or symptoms of cancer, I suspect heart disease can be just as bad if not worse. So what foods do you think are high in cholesterol? Doctor told me to avoid foods high in carbs (pasta's, breads, etc), but why did she tell me to avoid Soda's and candy when they are not high in carbs? What is worse for my diet, sweets or rich pasta's? Teeth are fine so I do not eat enough sweets to cause damage there.

    Sweets contribute to higher cholesterol. We tend to think of this coming from meats, fat, dairy instead of coming from sweets as well.

    Doctor said its better to drink skim, or low fat milk in the area of dairy. Perhaps once a week I could have some whole chocolate milk to get my fill, but not daily. She also said to eat foods such as chicken and fish. Perhaps I need to do this more often and up my fish oil intake.

    Grandpa died of bad nutrition, but he was lazy and did not want to change his habits. I do want to change.

    PS- Doctor never said anything about organic milk being healthier for me over regular milk, so that may be all hype to get me to spend more money.

    I eat sweets on occasion, but not often. If they are in the house then there is the temptation. As for milk, cannot do it so avoid it although I do like milk. We love cheese. I'm pretty much a protein person, like meat. Refined carbs I can live without though, yet sometimes we eat too many and then get back off of them.

    I mix krill oil in with the fish oil. It's more expensive than fish oil, but it helps and has a powerful antioxidant too.

    Huh? They are very high in carbohydrates. Have you looked at the label of your favorite fruity alco-pop? Thirty something carbohydrate grams!

    Fish oil pills and garlic pills can do the magic.
    Adding garlic to food helps.
    Garlic is a cholestrol buster, has a bad rap for his smell but has great medicinal power.
    Some of the garlic pills have fresh herbs like mint oil added to them to avoid smelly burps.
    Its a good thing to avoid the amount of deep fried food consumed.
    Try this for a 2-3 weeks, you will see noticeable difference.
