My cholesterol level is 206. What diet do I take to keep it low.?

More veg/fish, less.: If u r young and in general good health, 206 is very mildly elavated and if you have high level of HDL (good cholesterol) say above 60...I would not worry much about it (less than 200 = good). Balanced diet with more fish/veggies, less animal fats/cholesterol, and more aerobic exercise will do the job!
an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Stay well and healthy.
Good luck. ...Read more

Basic biology: The vast majority of your cholesterol is made in your body, rather than coming in from what you eat. People like to criticize other people's food choices, but diet is only a tiny portion of vascular health. I'd rather see you exercising and eating what's comfortable and sensible for you, and adding a statin if you need it. ...Read more
