What Kind of Cholesterol-Lowering Success Can You Expect?
Generally your blood cholesterol level should begin to drop 2 to 3 weeks after you start the cholesterol-lowering diet. Over time, you may reduce your level 30-55 mg/dl. The reduction in your blood cholesterol level depends on several factors, including: the amount of saturated fat in your present diet, your blood cholesterol level prior to starting your new diet and how responsive your body is to your new diet.

“I started this diet four months ago motivated to lower a 261 cholestrol level. The plan at that time was to be good for three months and see where it got me. Its been four months of healthier eating, and some of it is starting to become habit. This time I think the pounds are gone for good! This make 30 pounds in less than 4 months. But hear this… my Cholesterol Count over the past few months has dropped from 261 to 204. I am so thrilled…”
“I started on the cholesterol diet in Nov 2004. I got a letter from my doctor with my physical results and my cholesterol has changed dramatically since last January.
Overall: 188 (was over 260)
HDL: 36 (still needs some work)
LDL: 127 (was over 150)
Triglycerides: 124!! (was over 300!)
That is amazing considering my family history of terrible cholesterol.”
…my doctor called me personally at work to tell me that I won’t have to take cholesterol meds. My LDL was 164. It is now 104! I really feel like my body is ready to let go of the fat and maybe it won’t be so hard from now on. Thanks Anne for not letting me give up!
I had a cholesterol screening yesterday at Fred Meyer pharmacy. Blood is from a finger poke vs. a blood draw but the technician said accuracy is within a few points. Since starting the cholesterol lowering diet 11 weeks ago: total cholesterol, down 39 points to 197; triglicerides, down 28; HDL (good cholesterol), about the same; LDL (bad cholesterol), down 29 points with a total cholesterol/HDL ratio of 3.8 instead of 4.14. I’m delighted with my progress…
I had my three month blood test at the lab last week. I went to my doctors yesterday. My number was down to 5.7 and I don’t have to take meds. My doctor was so happy and proud of me and I have Anne to thank for that. I am just going to stay where I am for now and I am going to talk to Anne about any changes. I really credit her for my success. So I will see everyone at weigh in next Monday. Have a good week…
