Re: Thoughts on my dietician's response to me?

I was curious as to what people thought of her opinion
Boilerplate gov't approved recommendations. The government has a bad track record with diet recommendations.

So if you have genetically high cholesterol, it would stand to reason that your family also has a history of how are they?

What do they eat? Does it work? Have they actually had heart issues or do they just have high cholesterol?

If my ancestors had high cholesterol and all dropped dead at 50 then I'd probably behave much differently than if they all made it to 80+.

Re: Thoughts on my dietician's response to me?

Everyone is fine, but no one is physically active aside from my brother.

And everyone eats worse than I do, which is bad enough as it is. No heart issues, just high cholesterol.

Re: Thoughts on my dietician's response to me?

My very good friend has high cholesterol. No fam. history at all.
I believe she was around 220.

Started following the Doctor's nutrition advice (cheerios, skim milk, lf yogurt, whole wheat, etc) and after a few months, her cholesterol went up 20 points, and it was her bad that went up and good that went down.

But I'm not a Dr. and I don't play one on tv.
