Since high cholesterol was first recognized as a serious health risk, several efficient means of balancing and adjusting the lipid blood profile have been discovered. Here, Dr. Kenneth Cooper (author of 1988's CONTROLLING CHOLESTEROL) focuses on how to lower LDL cholesterol (bad) and balance it out with HDL cholesterol (good) via the twin pillars of exercise and diet. Cooper's strategy is the use of "functional foods," LDL-lowering edibles including bran buds, oatmeal, flaxseed, garlic, green tea, carrots, soy, and margarine-like spreads such as Benecol. Those readers already trembling at the thought of giving up their favorite foods can stop worrying; the book includes recipes that are ideal for getting your cholesterol under control. Grilled chicken, bran muffins, three-bean salad, oatmeal pancakes, chili lime spread, and various pastas are all on the menu. Alternatives, such as statin drugs (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors) are also discussed, along with their side effects. Concerned readers should take heart: according to Cooper, if his dietary and exercise regimen is closely adhered to, even the most lopsided of lipid profiles can be harmoniously balanced, often in a matter of weeks.
