Possible?

Doesn't necessarily have to be low, I guess, just within daily limits.

I have (or did a year or so ago) slightly high blood pressure and cholesterol of 236.

I'm 6 foot, low 190s right now. I'd like to get up to 225 by the end of summer.

Any advice?

Though I don't specifically track those nutrients, I don't see why it wouldn't be possible / easily achievable.

Chickens and turkey, fish and lean steak; Some shakes. Some fish oil and nuts and olive oil. Lots of oats or rice or spaghetti etc. Just eat lots of it all and easy on the seasonings.

Handfuls of dry oats chased by some water. Works great when in a hurry. I also put it in my protein shakes. So good, i can't drink em without it now.

You just chewing on the raw oats, and then swallowing them?

Saturated fat intake doesn't have as much to do with cholesterol levels as you'd think. Have you ever tried reducing carbs?

I know it goes against everything you've probably heard in the past, but decreasing carbs and increasing fats can actually lower triclygerides and LDLs.

You don't even have to chew them.

I have a Vitamix, so I have at least 2 cups of oats in a shake every day already. They blend up excellent.
