RECIPE: Need to lower my cholesterol without losing weight

I just found out I have high cholesterol. I am not overweight, if anything a little underweight. Any suggestions on how to lower my cholesterol but at the same time maintaining my weight? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I weigh 270 pounds and have a cholestrol level of 138. My LDL is within normal range. My LDLs were high and my cholestrol was over 200. I also had irritable bowel syndrome. For the bowel syndrome, I began eating a LARGE (I cup dry, 2 cups water) bowl of oatmeal every evening. My doctor attributes the drop in cholestrol to my steady diet of oatmeal.

jkrall - Thanks for the info on oatmeal. I'm not a big fan of oatmeal cereal, so I'm trying oat bran muffins (recipe is on the oat bran box). I read that if you eat 3 of them a day it will help with cholesterol. So far I'm eating 2 a day and will work up to the third one soon. Actually they're not too bad if you mix in blueberries, just very filling.

Use Olive Oel instead of other Oels.
You can make Choclate/Oatmeal cookies since you don't have to worry about your Weight.

You could take 3-4 tablespoons "LECITHIN" a day. It really works. You can buy the granules at a health food store. My husband once had 250 count and in 3 months it was down to 170 by taking this. It can tolerated in tomotato juice. You MUST take this much to make it work. It is a food from the soy family. Completely safe to take. Good luck!
