I'm wondering if eating the coconut oil bark, and little fiber in my diet made my cholesterol high.

I stopped eating the coconut oil bark after my October 13th lab work. I only use it to stir-fry.

Fiber I added;
I started eating one small apple a day smeared with peanut butter.
I have Bob's Redmill High Fiber Cereal w/1 teaspoon of cinnamon & almond milk, w/NuNaturals pure liquid stevia added, every morning.

I have one cup of beans everyday, w/1-2 cloves of garlic finely chopped added to it.
I've blend 1/2 cup mixed frozen berries, almond milk, stevia for a lunch 3 x a week
Baked fish, sardines, kippers, anchovies, or tuna salad 3-4 x a week.
Four celery stalks @ day for crunch snack.
Steamed veggies with my meals.
I cut down on beef (the bunless burgers), I'm eating more chicken breasts.
I drink lots of water. Ice cold glass is always at my side, and I make sure I drink 2 quarts or more a day.

I exercise a 15 minute brisk walk after breakfast, and a 15 minute brisk walk after dinner

I stop eating after 6 pm....if needed I'll eat a SF jello, or eat my apple if I didn't eat it during the day.

I seem to be losing weight faster too :jumpjoy: Five pounds to goal. And the baby bump is gone. This all happened when I upped my fiber.

Fish oil capsules 3 a day
Vit C 1000 1 a day
Vit E 400 i.u. 1 a day
Vit D3 1000 1 a day
Magneisum 400 mg 2 x a day

3 RX's taken
BP med
Beta Blocker

AC1 @ 5.6

Looking good so far. Next test & doc visit will be in April. Fingers crossed the meds will disappear next :)
