Default High LDL

Just returned from my yearly check up, the good news is I am down 80 lbs(really been watching what we eat) and i started a Spinning routine(Daily classes for approx. 1 hour a day).Now the bad news, my Cholesteral is still elevated, it came in at 213, what have you done to lower your LDL as that is whats elevated, any info would be great.And is 213 that far out of to have to return to a Staton?

Congrats on the 80lbs!!! I don't have high cholesterol, but my husband does, and what he does to keep off meds is to keep his diet clean of any processed foods containing cholesterol, take a daily dose of Metamucil and eat oats 2-3 times/week. Not Cheerios, but real old fashioned, cook on the stove top, oatmeal. I understand that steel cut oats are also beneficial, but to my knowledge he hasn't tried those. He also only eats red meat a few times/week and keeps his intake of shellfish and egg yokes to a minimum. Other than that he tries to munch on foods high in healthy fats, like nuts, seeds, whole grain crackers with guacamole etc. He's had to go on meds a few times, but his liver doesn't like them at all, so the best medicine for him is a good diet and plenty of exercise.
