10 years ago, in my early 30's after giving birth to my 4th child my cholesteral was 291. I just took a test yesterday after a year and a half of a special diet (salmon and 100% coco everyday). My cholesteral at 42 years old is now 186, hdl 50, ldl, 120, tryglicerides 82, and vldl 16.... all pretty much looks good (except a little LDL). Can I attribute that to the fish, coco, low carbs, hi protein and daily walks? I think I did good!
