As somebody else commented, at a top level it doesn't give much more info than you get every day ( i.e. eat more veg and exercise) but I really read it carefully and began to understand the core problems and solutions and started to implement the recommendations.
The result was that I eat well (I never feel hungry), enjoy my food, I have finally got down to my target weight and my total cholesterol after 3 months was down to 4.9. I hope this helps and good luck.
No throwaway booklet, this is an in depth study of the causes and treatment of high cholesterol. Ms Brewer appears to be an academic and the book certainly exudes authority and clarity. What suited me was that, instead of simplifying the science by omitting details, she actually clarifies it and leaves one with a really good grasp of whats actually going on.
In terms of contents I guess its the same as all the others eg definitions, causes, risk factors, diet, statins followed by a thorough plan for reducing LDL, increasing HDL in 12 weeks
I bought 3 books on being diagnosed with high LDL.
The other 2 were longer books, but this is the one that has stuck.
It is extremely helpful with straightforward language and useful tables and advice.
In particular it is an easy and absorbing read, and with very practical steps to take, with positive language for action.
I am very impressed indeed. The Author is to be congratulated.
Anybody who reads this text will feel rewarded in learning, and encourged to take useful and deliberate action.
