    too much cardio (overtraining) a factor in high cholesterol??

    Last year after my wife had her annual exam, her cholesterol was 270 (ldl 149) She freaked and we took a good look at what she was eating. We couldn’t find much that was that bad. She just had another physical and the bad cholesterol has gone up. We are at a loss. Her family has no history of high cholesterol (that we know of). I have heard however that over-training may be a factor. She does 1.5 hours of cardio 5-6 days per week in addition to weights. Has anyone heard of a correlation?

    I'd be willing to bet it is her diet. I'd say the most important thing is her fat intake. What fats does she consume? Eliminate margarine or anything similar and use straight up butter. Check the food you eat from cans or boxes for partially hydrogenated oils and eliminate them. Vegetable oils aren't particularly good for you either other than olive oil. I would supplement with fish oil for the omega 3's and epa/dha. Studies have shown that the fish oil can reduce ldl levels 25-30% while increasing hdl levels. This will also help with any risks with CHD since this is the main concern when it comes to cholesterol levels.

    Her doctor will try and prescribe a statin drug for your wife which I am not a fan of after reading some articles I forgot to bookmark. Statins do have risks and do not improve overall mortality rates. Have her watch her food intake for the bad oils, consume 6-8 grams of fish oil, and take something like green tea pills, as well as a multi-vitamin, which will help with free radical damage the high levels of cholesterol may be trying to fix. This should work well as studies have shown. Red yeast rice is something to consider as well but I would hold off untill after the results from the fish oil supplementation have come in. Her main focus: fix her omega 6:3 ratios.

    Her diet varies quite a bit but usually consists of; protein bars, baby carrots for lunch, mixed nuts, chicken breasts used in various ways.... I only cook with olive oil. We might have a steak from time to time. One problem area might be chocolate. She does eat more than she should, which might explain the amount of cardio. We do take multis daily also.

    She might also want to up her grams of soluble fiber per day. My cholesterol and blood pressure are extremely low for someone of my size now and its because I consume a lot of oatmeal everyday.
