Anyone have a gluten-free diet for lowering cholesterol? Are there any diet professionals out there that can suggest a resource to follow? Thanks!

Lentils, beans, apples with skin... all the non-starchy vegetables you can eat. A small amount of nuts. A few eggs (unless you're diabetic, in which case go light on the eggs). Fish, some chicken, a little red meat (grassfed is better). Limited dairy.

Eliminating white carbs and sugar in favor of olive oil and whole grains can generally be useful for bringing bloodwork back into line.

Walt Willet and Mollie Katzen wrote a pretty basic book on diet that might be useful but you would have to adapt from gluten-grains to non-gluten grains for some of the recipes and suggestions. Sound like a good start?

And don't forget the DARK leafy green vegetables as well: Asparagus, spinach, Kale, green beans, broccoli, peas, eggplant, red bell peppers and zucchini.

On the food side, make sure that you get your good fats as well: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Avocados, etc.

Finally, you should be taking a triple distilled fish oil several times per day. There is tons of research out there that support it's inclusion into your diet.
