are 60 pounds, which I cer-
tainly don't miss. I haven't
weighed 160 pounds since my
college days.
Moreover, I haven't gone
overboard with my new diet.
Moderation, as I was adivsed,
is the key. While being thin
doesn't guarantee cholesterol
levels below 200, it certainly
has helped in my case.
I still enjoy ice cream every
night, although it's really a
frozen confection that is low
in calories and fat and just as
delicious. I have also
discovered a whole spectrum
of cheeses that are low in
saturated fats and high in
polyunsaturates. I have fallen
in love with tofu (soybean
curds).
But, as the saying goes, the
proof is in the pudding (a pud-
ding with non-fat milk, of
course). As I anxiously
awaited my test results a few
months ago, I wondered if my
cholesterol had gone north or
south for the winter. South
was my idea of a perfect
cholesterol vacation.
As my physician, Dr.
Charles Kravitz, who is af-
filiated with Einstein
Medical Center, read the
results to me, I steeled myself
for the worst.
"Your cholesterol is 156," he
announced, "down more than
100 points."
But how about my HDLs?
When I started my diet in
December 1987, they were 28
— low for a male, for whom
the ideal count is close to 40.
"Forty-five," he said.
In less than 18 months, I
had cut my cholesterol by
nearly 40 percent and in-
creased my HDL's by more
than 50 percent.
I went out and celebrated
with a nice big dish of fried
. . . tofu! 0
