I walk five days per week (3 miles each day). My cholesterol has decreased
from 286 to 215 this past year. My triglycerides have gone from 214 to 201
this past year.

I hope this data will serve to encourage new members as well as help Nancy
to make plans for her group. Never have I felt so energetic, been so free of
pain, and so stress free as I have since I began "Ornishing" a little over a
year ago. I do, however, have one small concern. My bilirubin went from .6
to .1 during the past year. Has anyone else experienced a similar drop?
