I've been taking medication for better cholesterol control for many years now. These meds can only do so much for me as I am also a heart patient. June 3 of this year I caught my first Drum fish (82 lb.). After consuming two Drum fish dinners shortly thereafter I had my blood tested for cholesterol again. After ten years of meds. my cholesterol has never been this good. Don't misunderstand me, it's not perfect. But no one can say for sure what caused the bad cholesterol to go down and the good cholesterol to go up and the ratio to improve. My doctor suggests I continue to eat Drum Fish. Note: I tried heavy doses of Omega-3 oils years ago to no effect. Drum Fish, good for me, maby good for everybody.

Sparse grey: I prefer Drum fish broiled with some course ground black pepper. Baked is also good. I avoid using butter and rich sauces. A little salt shouldn't hurt but isn't necessary.

Fish certainly has those properties. Many types of fish have the ability to raise HDL's (the good stuff) and lower LDL's(bad)...the little amount of fat that is in most fish helps to "pick up" the bad cholesterol and "carry" it out of the blood stream...As for the Fish-oil capsules not working, theres nothing like the real thing in my opinion, though some companies certainly do make a higher quality product than others.
Something else you might want to try is a bowl of good Ol' fashioned oatmeal in the morning, not the in the packet instant stuff. The real oatmeal can cook in your microwave in about 3-4 mins you can add all kinds of fruits to it and I think you'll find that if you stick with it your cholesterol will drop a good amount...Its worked for everybody I know. Good luck and Congrats! :D

Maybe it's the fishing and not the fish.
Drumfish is often downplayed in the taste department. (Mostly by guys who don't want to clean them).
I like mine marinated in soy, fresh ginger and basil and right on the grill.
That oatmeal idea does help. Also try one of the soy spreads like Benecol.
Have a happy lipid profile.

Sparse grey: I enjoy eating all kinds of fish about twice a week. So long as they are not strong in taste ( or as they say in Minn. "RICH" ) Fresh water, Salt water, Trout to Mako's. But nothing mushie. As I had said, I have blood tests regularly (every other month) and never had my cholesterol been so good till I ate Drum fish.
KeysKid: Thanks, I'll give the real oatmeal a try. The instant stuff never was to my likeing.

Hey BIGGEST and Red C, what ex college, NFL head coach has a bowl of oatmeal every day?? You can't look this one up!! OOPS, almost slipped up. He is no longer an ex-coach as he has returned to coach again at the college level. A hint is that he, Coach K and the General have something in common. ;) :D :confused:
