Hi Dorothy, The "no breads" has thrown me for a loop, too.
Are your triglycerides especially high? If so, then it is important to follow something along the lines of a diabetic diet. That might be where the "no bread products" comes from.
In this case, it is not that you can not have grain products, but you need to choose whole grains - 100% whole wheat bread, whole grain pastas, etc. Limit the simple sugars - soda, baked goods, candy, juice, etc.
All the best,

I'm just wondering why you can't eat bread products?
Here are some previous articles I've written on lowering cholesterol, however they're not specific to a low carb diet:
I look forward to hearing from you again.
