Andrew Lessman CholestaCare
Has anyone tried Andrew Lessman's CholestaCare which sells on HSN? It contains photosterols - 400 mg. per capsule and is supposed to help reduce LDL and total cholesterol.
I am currently on Suzanne Somer's Somersizing plan for weight reduction, although I'm on level 2 (maintenance) right now. Somersizing is somewhat based on Atkins, but no where near as strict with carbs. I have lost the weight but noticed that my cholesterol shot up. My total cholesterol was 264 with an LDL of 191. Not good. Triglicerides however were just fine.
Last time I was on this eating plan my numbers went up, but by the 2nd test, they went a little lower than prior to her eating plan. I will give myself 3 months of AL's CholestaCare combined with eating more fiber, etc. to see if that makes a difference. If that doesn't work, then I'll seriously consider taking a prescription.
Just interested to see if anyone has tried CholestaCare and what the results are. Thanks, Gianna
