(Q) I can't see 'oats' listed either as a eat or don't eat factor in this diet, aren't they supposed to be good for reducing cholesterol.

Also, you list non fat yogurt as a don't eat, can we eat full fat, unsweetened, natural yogurt ?

(A) by Fiona

Pass on the oats.. Just check the label; carbs minus fiber = true sugar. If it is more than 4-7 then pass on it. Oats are probably way higher than that.

Same with yogurt, check the label as many are shockingly high and full fat typically has less sugar, if it does not then there might be an error on the label. ;-).

Don't assume that lower cholesterol is healthy, it is actually associated with higher mortality rate, and also associated with greater sales in statin drugs.

On our blog you can read and listen to some great interviews about cholesterol, it is needed and it is very important you have it. Also this cholesterol pdf file can be read or downloaded to read later or keep in your health information library.

Cholesterol is raised when there is a problem because it is doing a job. Like there are always more firemen around a fire, would you kill off all the firemen and expect there now to be no fires?
