the cholesterol challenge

Oats. Krill oil tablets. Macadamia nuts. Salmon. Even chia seeds. You'd think the steps I've taken to reduce my cholesterol would pay off. But no...it actually went up. Sigh. Hmmm...I wonder if eating those ox tail stews and cholesterol-rich squid might have been counter-productive.

Psyllium husks too.

My friend last night was talking about it. Might as well add it to my list. I heard chia seeds are pointless though...evidently you need to eat shit loads of it.

Why is it that everything that is supposedly healthy sounds so dreary?

I think you need to eat rather a lot of the cholesterol reducing margarine for it to make a difference. I take fish oil, but I have heard that you need to have a lot of it for it to really make a difference. I won't take krill as I worry about what will the whales eat?
