Fruit Veggie And Protein Diet
Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone.

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?
Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level.

Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more
