Night Elf Posted March 3, 2012 Share Posted March 3, 2012 How do I lower the bad cholesterol and triglycerides and increase the good cholesterol? (Is that how to word it?) What foods have cholesterol besides egg yolks, which I quit eating a couple of years ago? I no longer eat as many unhealthy foods as I used to eat. I do still have canned items like veggies. Our spaghetti is jar Ragu, although we used to make it with tomato sauce and spices. Oh, I can't list everything I eat although I think it's mostly limited. Are there particular types of foods to avoid and/or eat to lower bad numbers? I've been on Simvastatin for a couple of years. I'm losing weight and I would like to get off of it. I asked my doctor and she said that once you're on it, you're pretty much always on it. I can't see that being the case if I get to a healthy weight, and continue eating right. I'm still trying to get into an active mode though. What do you think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
