High Cholesterol ???

I never had high cholesterol before, as of last year my cholesterol numbers
were perfect. I just had blood work done last week and now they are telling me my numbers were high. I have gained about 25 lbs. this past year and a half, I have not exercised, have not ate as healthy as I use too so do you think this could change these numbers? I need to get real now and start walking and eating healthy. Does anyone have a good weight plan that works for them? I don't want a diet, I want a healthy way of eating that is easy to follow? Thanks!

Re: High Cholesterol ???

Ashley..I had my cholesterol check for the first time about a year ago. I figured since I am getting older (36) I better start getting checked. My numbers were slightly raised...but last week I had a check again...here are my numbers...Cholesterol 221 Triglycerides 67 HDL 95.0 Direct LDL 85.37 Chol/HDL Ratio 2....no clue what all the numbers mean. I just know that 221 is an elevated number.

You need to look at the ratio, not the total number. You are actually in the low risk category with a ratio of 2.
