For some people, it
and I wish those that can do it
best wishes. I do not feel in the long
run rediculously strict diets work. A balanced diet of veggies, fish, chicken, beef, whole wheats, grains is advantageous along with statins.
The benefits of statins eclipse as you say a draconian diet, IMO. Type I Familial Hyperlipidemia patients are lucky to live into their late teens. I'm fortunate not have as aggressive case as that, nontheless I do have CAD dxed in my late 20s.
