If you are one of the nearly 107 million Americans struggling with high cholesterol, then Dr. Janet Brill offers you a revolutionary new plan for taking control of your health—without the risks of statin drugs.

With Dr. Brill’s breakthrough Cholesterol Down Plan, you simply add nine “miracle foods” to your regular diet and 30 minutes of walking to your daily routine. That’s all.

This straightforward and easy-to-follow plan can lower your LDL (bad) cholesterol by as much as 47% in just 4 weeks.

Cholesterol Down explains Dr. Brill’s 10 point plan as well as the science behind it.


You’ll learn how each miracle food affects LDL (bad) cholesterol, and how the foods work together for maximum effect, as well as:

  • How eating whole grains helps reduce LDL cholesterol in your bloodstream
  • Why antioxidants keep plaque from building up in your arteries
  • How certain steps change the structure of LDL particles (and why it’s best for them to be large and fluffy)
  • Why walking just thirty minutes a day lowers “bad” cholesterol and cuts dangerous belly fat

With everything you need to stay focused on the plan, including a daily checklist, six-month chart for tracking LDL cholesterol changes, tools for assessing your risk level for cardiovascular disease, sample weekly menus, and even heart-healthy recipes, Cholesterol Down is the safe and effective alternative (or adjunct) to statin drugs.

What the Readers Say

"Just wanted to let you know, I had new blood work done recently. My cholesterol is down 50 points in 5 months!!!!
You already knew this, but your book has been a wonderful guide and motivator."

– Catherine (June 2011)

"I don't normally do this but I just need to thank you for your "Cholesterol Down" book. I am an otherwise healthy 51-year old male who had an overall cholesterol level of 243 in June 2010. I was loathe to start taking prescription drugs (which doctors are all too quick to prescribe) because once you start you never stop. I immediately went online and found your book and purchased a copy. I have been diligently following your recommendations, as well as eliminating cheese, and all meats (I only eat chicken and fish). My cholesterol went down to 201 in September 2010 and 181 this month. Your book is invaluable; I have recommended it to many friends and acquaintances and they have started your regimen also. So thank you again for providing the world with a viable alternative to becoming a part of the "pharmaceutical industrialn complex."

Today's Nutrition Tip
"White wheat," often not as good as the brown stuff
"Whole grain white" bread or flour is made from light colored white wheat kernels. In contrast, regular whole-wheat bread is made with red wheat, which is darker in color. The white wheat comes from an albino variety of wheat that differs from the traditional red wheat kernels. They're equally matched in terms of nutrition; however, the white has a milder, sweeter taste. The problem is that the regulations governing the labeling of white wheat products are nebulous. White wheat on the label can consist of virtually anything, but generally comprises a mixture of 100% whole grain and white flour. Furthermore, the white wheat is more heavily processed than the 100% whole grain flour to make the product taste more like its refined cousins, though the jury is still out regarding exactly how much nutrition is lost in the processing. The product is marketed to regular consumers of white bread who want to consume more whole grains for the health benefits but just can't quite take the plunge to eating 100% whole grain products. So, for those people, the new "white wheat" products are a better choice than refined white bread products. The bottom line is, nutrition-wise, your best bet is to routinely go for the 100% WHOLE wheat products that have been less processed, contain all three parts of the original wheat kernel and have been shown scientifically to help prevent chronic disease. Look on the ingredients list and the first ingredient should have the word "whole" in it, regardless of the color of the wheat grain!
