As far as I can tell the Rick Gallop diet is not about lowering cholesterol. Here is a website with tips on how you can lower cholesterol by changing your diet: www.loweringcholesterol.net/show/cholesterol-lowering-foods. I have tried most of these myself and it works. I lowered my cholesterol levels significantly. You do not have to take drugs or follow any fancy diets. Just change your diet a bit. All I did was reduce significantly the amount of cheese, butter and cream I ate, including pizza; began eating a lot more tofu and soy foods; stopped eating salami and sausages of all kinds; ate more nuts and a lot more fish. This made a big difference in my measured cholesterol levels. It was not that hard to do.
