Risk of Bias Assessment Rating:
Eligible women were between the ages of 52 and 62 years, had a BMI of 25–39.9 kg/m2, waist circumference >80 cm diameter, BP <140/90 mm Hg, with or without antihypertensive therapy, not on lipid-lowering drug therapy, LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) between 100 and 160 mg% and no history of CVD.
