@MsYankee:  Those numbers are pretty DANG good in what I’ve seen, congrats on your weight loss so far!!! Healthy fats like nuts and avocados help somewhat but what the doctors I work with say really helps is exercise. Good luck. Nice!

Yes, those numbers are really quite good, especially considering the fact that you still have some weight to lose!

It sounds like you’re doing great with your diet and exercise. My only suggestion would be to work on incorporating more healthy fats in your diet to increase your HDL: olive oil, avocados, nuts & seeds. Bonus- these fats help with satiety so you will feel less hungry!

Congratulations on your weight loss and your desire to take control of your health! You’re doing great.

Opitimum HDL levels is generally considered above 60.

Definately keep doing what you are doing, but I would, as PP said, raise your fats.

Eating fat does not make you fat so dont be afraid of it in a well balanced diet. Be sure to eat at least the required oil WW says, but also look into eating more fatty fish and other foods high in Omega fatty acids

Keep up the good work.

Exercise is also great for raising HDL, and IMO is a healthier way than adding oils.  There’s a good amount of evidence that shows having a low LDL is more important than having a higher HDL.  Your total is great!  Under 150 is the magic number 🙂
