Further update - had bloodwork and an annual exam this week. In June 2017, my total cholesterol was 254. This week, 202. All other numbers and blood pressure rock solid (tho my pressure has always been good.)

Have been missing the diet a lot recently due to a vacation, and various family occasions (weddings, cookouts, vacation, etc). Not dispositive of anything, but good to see the numbers moving in a positive direction.

Already looking forward to lentil soup for dinner tonight!

Also, someone mentioned pasta upthread (maybe me?) We discovered Barilla makes a bean/lentil flour based pasta. Claims to have considerable fiber. We use it occasionally for variety.
