Thanks for the input. My total cholesterol is under 100 (88) and always has been to my knowledge. My diet has been under 30% from fat, usually less. I am not overweight (105 lbs.) and have never smoked. Goes to show you what "clean living" gets you.
I am going to stick with the diet and have no plans to go off. I'd like to see my son grow up and be able to hopefully see my grandkids. I've done it for one month so far and am looking forward to my upcoming stress test to see if there's any difference from the others.
I am debating quitting work because between the stress and lack of time to do the rest the program requires (meditation, exercise, etc.), I am feeling overwhelmed.
