From the American Heart Association Cholesterol pages
Total Cholesterol Level Category
Less than 200 mg/dL Good !! Desirable level that puts you at lower risk for coronary heart disease.
200 to 239 mg/dL Borderline high A cholesterol level of 200 mg/dL or higher raises your risk.
240 mg/dL and above High blood cholesterol.
A person with this level has more than twice the risk of coronary heart disease as someone whose cholesterol is below 200 mg/dL.
The problem is you need to figure out what your Cholesterol is HDL vs. LDL and Tryglycerides…In Most folks cases the LDL(Bad) will be too high , and HdL (Good) way too low and teh tryglicerides high….though I think if your Typically eating the sorts of things you mentioned YOUr Good might be better and you may be surprised The whole subject is far from simple, so most doctors will prescribe medications for older folks and tell young folks to eat better…hoping you will straighten it out… One very serious thing that you need to seriously grasp is that Oats will cleanse your blood…plain wheat bread is better then white certainly, a Few companies have Whole grain Oatmeal bread which is lower sodium and just nearly as much better then wheat as wheat is over white…tastes better too American cheese is horrendous, Swiss is Better you'll be looking at little things like this for Cholesterol care and "weight management" … Realize that BMI in many cases is NOT realistic 100% of the time. One thing you can look to for help as a guideline Is the Dash Or Mediterainian Diet… I seriously think, That a look at your broken down numbers, some Eduaction for you on these AHA Pages below, Oatmeal !! if youuse like a instant add some Oatmeal granola with Natural fruits and berries, seriously try to each oatmeal several days a week… if your a big shellfish eater shell fish and tryglicerides (for ME ) mine goes HIGH …try skimmed milk/ 1%/ 2% << Not whole, You should limit your Soda/ energy drinks and try to get 8 8 ounce glasses of water which should help dilute the goop I have faith, if you actually are eating ^ those things add some of these and you'll be totally normal quite soon… Sweet potatos Yams, Carrots (Carotene) also have Great affect on cleaning and Giving you nutrients you need
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ what cooking oil do you use??? Look up typse of oils IT matters too!
Oatmeal (add stuff to like Fruit N berries , oatmeal Granola or make your own
Light Milk instead of Fat milk , lower soda , energy, drinks for Flavored water or water water, natural juices..
Orange Veggies and green veggies Major good apples bananas Oranges etc salads (toss in some chicken turky ham, bacon bits, pepperoni whatever HB eggs be careful with Gravies and sauces as "good" as they are they are NOT good they are FATS !! and Look for DASH Diet Books in the library or on line bookstore…. The Broccolli is Huge too dude awesome stuff you should consider some sorta multi vitamin a day too…
