Thank you.does anyone here know what is good in lowering tryglicerides? I am currently trying to loose weight but I have told my trig are 249 instead of 149 count?

I had the same problem about 3 years ago.  What helped lower mine from 218 to 133 was the following:

Eating black olives, avocados, hummis and veggies.  Any whole grains and low fat foods are wonderful.  Exercise also helps...cardio!!

For salad dressings make your own homemade using extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh cracked black pepper.

I really need to post my review for the weight loss:)  If you read my Tummy Tuck Review that will give you some of the details.  But basically I worked out with a trainer and followed the Weight Watchers plan for a year.  

It was hard work but so worth it.  It all started after I had my breast reduction.  I was then able to exercise and was very motivated:)

recently ordered Shaun T's Hip Hop workout DVD set and plan on using it as soon as my BR surgery healing is complete. I wonder if tummy tuck would be good for me? I am not sure what happens with tummy tucks
