My cholesterol is a little high....211. Should be under 200, though Dr. D. has said O's can safely run a little high...still I wonder what would be the way to bring it down? The LDL...is a bit high, as is the HDL (the good one), the triglycerides are low....so.,....Hey! I do eat a lot of fat!  ghee and such. But maybe its the grains....(as some of you know I am attempting la vida grainfree,but have been slipping a bit)

that range isn t too bad for an O.

up your good fats and lower your grains, that s the secret.
don t forget to exercise!

Fenugreek extract also known as
Trigonella Foerum-graecum has
been used to reduce cholesterol and control
blood sugar. It's because of its
high content of soluble fiber, which binds to fatty acids, slow the absorption
of foods and create a sense of fullness.

O tends to function better with a cholesterol
of over 200."

Egg lecithin, Inositol, almonds, walnuts, flax seeds, cold water fish and BTD should do the trick; may be useful also Niacin Vit B6. As an A I am not an expert of grain free diet but I had good results with BTD !!!
Best wishes for quick results !

I forgot that good fats (EVO, nuts, fish (Salmon sardines Mackerels) better the ratio HDL- LDL, that is very important !

Peter's Cardiovascular book is great on this subject. Worth owning. Everything you need to know.

Lola quoted this text from dr d:

I don't understand...why do O's function better with a cholesterol of over 200? I read a lot here about O's reducing their cholesterol levels by following the BTD as though that's a good thing.

Just curious

Rochelle,
it doesn t mean all Os should aim for high cholesterol levels.
it means we do ok and it s not that big an issue if our cholesterol is around 200, as opposed to an A for example.

high good quality(preferably grass fed beef and lamb) Protein for O's is the key to lowering your cholesterol because the more you eat the more you activate your Intestinal alkaline phosphatase which is a specialized fat busting enzyme. A's do not have this feature because some evidence shows that the A antigen itself actually deactives the enzyme

another bonus in grass fed meat is the conjugated linoleic acid, (CLA)! )

plus grass fed beef is high in Omega 3 as opposed to corn fed beef which is high in Omega 6.  Go for the 3!!

I have been following BTD for about 2 1/2 weeks and have seen some great results.  Haven't had my cholesterol checked, but have seen other positive effects, especially less fatigue.  I work with an O who was diagnosed with high cholesterol and of course her Dr's recommendation is nothing like Dr. D's recommendations.  She is avoiding red meat altogether.  I am trying to get her to read some of Dr. D's info.

Jill, warm welcome to BTD and the boards. Glad you have seen some great results in just 2-1/2 weeks. I was a lucky one that was as well.
I, too, work w/ an O who has some issues. He needs to lose about 50 lbs, has 'psoriasis' (think dermatitis heptiformas (sp?) - as he eats a lot of wheat) and some other issues. Just mentioned yest to him, again, that red meat is really good for him. Then the guy in the office that thinks he's a dr   chimes in about how it's not good for you. I countered w/ it's not the meat, it's the cr*p in it and then he says "well, if you're going to eat it, you have to be sure to 'get rid of it' as soon as possible."  I let that one go.   Having what goes in, come out , on a reg basis is something that goes w/o saying, so didn't feel the 'need' to add anything to that one.  Since I'M a WOMAN, the one who needs the advice, won't listen to me.    Oh, well.  They both just   at me when I'm not looking. .   The DH used to too, but NOW he sees.  He said the other day he was just going to go back to eating what he wanted because he was bored w/ eating. I said, 'well, go ahead. YOU know what you're going to feel like'.  He's still being a fairly good boy. He knows......... it's just that there are things he's not willing to give up, YET.  
Jill, just do like I do, plant and water, plant and water. Over and over. Some of them get it , some don't.  Maybe they'll try it just to shut you up. .  I'm sure that's what happened w/ the DH.  Not really, he caved in because he felt SO BAD.
Just a couple of days ago, a lady that I ran into at the groc store, called for the website address again. Guess she lost it. Tho she still had my phone number. Hmmmmmmmmm....................  Gave those to her at the same time. Maybe she thru the website info away, but now has decided she shouldn't have. Who knows.

Great news on your positive results--especially less fatigue.

Much more continued health to you...
