Dogs appreciate a good meal, too.

Bill,

I am surprised that food impacts your cholesterol that much. My wife had genetically high cholesterol (her father had two massive heart attacks at age 49, one at home and one in the hospital) and he is now in his 70s and never had another issue. He is on cholesterol medication and also avoids red meat and high saturated fat meals.

My wife had her blood work done in 2011 and came back at a total cholesterol over 260. They wanted her on meds immediately but she declined and I put her on a keto style diet. Red meat, eggs, bacon, cheese, chicken, fish, turkey, etc. and greens. No carbs at all, and she did no exercise beyond her usual 30-minutes on the treadmill. After 3-months she dropped her overall to 160 with her HDL going up over 60. The doctor was blown away, but since 2011, her yearly blood tests always come back with total around 160, HDL 60+, and triglycerides under 90.

It is odd how bodies are so different.

My wife and I eat exactly the same foods (whatever she cooks).  She has a 260 and I have a 160 Cholesterol number - my LDl and HDl are awesome and hers pretty much sucks.  Go figure.  She is on a Statin and I'm on nothing.  I do tend to go for more protein naturally and she likes her carbs more than me.  Genetics is some weird stuff.
