In recent time trials (Mayo Clinic):

Caffeine (3 or more cups of coffee a day) helped prevent heart attacks and helped control blood sugar levels if no sugar was added.

Bananas protect the stomach lining from ulcers and acts like an antacid.

Eggs do not raise cholesterol.

As a Diabetic I have found that:

Diabetic do not eat the gravy, butter, anything with sugar or made with white flour because it will raise my blood sugar.

Triglycerides are too high eat bread sparingly.  One piece for breakfast usually whole wheat toast.  I do not eat any bread at any other time of day.  My triglycerides were too high and my Doctor said, "lay off the bread."  I did and my triglycerides dropped from 375 to 175.

Cholesterol too high do not eat Bacon, sausage or anything that has high bad fat.  Add oats to your breakfast and get some exercise because it will raise your good Cholesterol and raising the good will make the bad go down.
