be caaareful! every time i watch the BBC show "you are what you eat" - people there eat tons of Indian take-away. tons of ghee, oils, & carbs in a lot of the food that packs it on. you're already smarty-brains anyway, but just made me think of that.

i need better cholesterol and less triglycerides ]=

Aye. I think that if those spices can keep Indians alive with all that fat in their diets, then it should do well for me with lower fat. :)
