    Whenever I see discussions on cholesterol I feel the need to mention my favorite breakfast food - oatmeal.

    I got diagnosed with high cholesterol after a stint of eating bad (lots of hot dogs and cheese) and NOT being told I was supposed to fast before the test. Well I went back to eating oatmeal for breakfast and it helped dramatically drop my HDL. Right now I'm on a kick of oatmeal and spicy salsa.

    Oatmeal every morning for years has gradually got my total cholesterol down to 168 as of last Monday and the hdl and ldl were both within normal parameters. Trigs still 250ish, however, going down. Ken Sweet

    To increase fiber intake and also eat a tasty food, You guys should try Ezekiel bread. The bread is made form the ingredients as laid out in the Bible. No flour, no preservatives and 10% of your daily fiber needs in 1 slice. We buy it at Walmart. Ken Sweet

    I'm going to be on the lookout for the bread mentioned. It sounds great. The recipe linked to has a error in the amount of salt needed according to the reviews, which were quite high...folks loved it.
    Which is bigger?: a) $100 per month since the Big Bang or b) the US National Debt.

    Yes, I noticed the salt mistake also. 2 teaspoons instead of 2 tablespoons. Ken Sweet

    Bob, you can also order online at Food For Life . I just ordered 6 loaves of the Ezekiel (Sesame Style) tonight. They also have a store locator on the website and many other products as well. Ken Sweet

    I would hope that you meant droped your LDL not your HDL
    High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is one of the five major groups of lipoproteins, which, in order of sizes, largest to smallest, are chylomicrons, VLDL, IDL, LDL, and HDL, which enable lipids like cholesterol and triglycerides to be transported within the water-based bloodstream. In healthy individuals, about thirty percent of blood cholesterol is carried by HDL.[1]
    Blood tests typically report HDL-C level, i.e. the amount of cholesterol contained in HDL particles. It is often contrasted with low-density or LDL cholesterol or LDL-C. HDL particles are able to remove cholesterol from within artery atheroma[citation needed] and transport it back to the liver for excretion or re-utilization, which is the main reason why the cholesterol carried within HDL particles (HDL-C) is sometimes called "good cholesterol" (despite the fact that it is exactly the same as the cholesterol in LDL particles). Those with higher levels of HDL-C seem to have fewer problems with cardiovascular diseases, while those with low HDL-C cholesterol levels (less than 40 mg/dL or about 1 mmol/L) have increased rates for heart disease.[2] While higher HDL levels are correlated with cardiovascular health, no incremental increase in HDL has been proven to improve health. In other words, while high HDL levels might correlate with better cardiovascular health, specifically increasing one's HDL might not increase cardiovascular health.[3] Additionally, those few individuals producing an abnormal, apparently more efficient, HDL ApoA1 protein variant called ApoA-1 Milano, have low measured HDL-C levels yet very low rates of cardiovascular events even with high blood cholesterol values
