: hello folks,
: have any of you here tried the atkins (lo carb) diet?
: if so, have you used it in combination with any natural cholesterol lowering supplements?
: (such red yeast rice, garlic, etc.)
: i have lost 27 lbs in a little more than 3 months,
: but my total cholesterol just came back at 257 with LDL of 180 and HDL of 58.
: i would like ot keep losing the weight (another 25 or so to go), but i dont want to risk the CHD.
: i was thinking of adding a supplement.
: thanks and best of luck to you all,
