I do eat really healthily and felt that my condition was due to hereditary cholesterol rather than dietary factors. A friend had reduced theirs through the supplements recommended in your book, Optimum Nutrition Bible, so I thought it was worth a try. Five weeks later I went for a second blood test to find my cholesterol had dropped to 5.1. My GP couldn't believe it! He would not wholeheartedly acknowledge the success, but he didn't knock it either, saying what ever you're taking is working - come back in a year!
