Cholesterol Conundrum

So  after having blood drawn 3 times, I finally got my lipid levels checked!  I got a letter in the mail today from my PCP with my Cholesterol levels.  It's a mixed bag: My total cholesterol is 222; it should be lower than 200.  HDL is 61, a very good number, thanks to taking Omega-3.  LDL is 141; very bad--should be lower than 100.  Triglycerides were 94--a good number.

It looks like I need to cut some fatty foods out of my diet.  I had grilled salmon and a fresh pepper for dinner.  Time for more fresh foods and less frozen stuff.
