I've lost 77 lbs and my LDLs went up. My mind has been buzzing about with all I need to do.
My cholesterol LDLs went from 286 up to 303, doctor is putting me on Lipitor. I researched it and made a "battle plan" besides praying.. :) ..
My body is producing too much cholesterol, no matter what I eat. Now i need this prescription and there are many side effects.
I'm going to supplement to counter-act all the side effects-
I don't eat much meat and measure my olive oil & coffee creamer and eat low sodium, eat raw unsalted nuts and eat lots of veggies.
Lipitor reduces co enzyme Q10 in the liver, so I'm going to take "coenzyme Q10" supplements.
It also will reduce my metabolism, so will take "raspberry keytone" supplements to help.
And, it affects your memory, like Alzheimer disease does, so going to take "ginkgo biloba" to increase blood flow to my brain and keep eating healthy fats and nuts to help my brain.
I'm really not an exerciser, but trying to change that. I've been doing cardio-leg exercises off you tube, every other day for 2 weeks now. Also walking. The exercises I do are strengthening my legs for roller skating. I ordered some good skates from the rink. Used our tax return money. Was a good investment. Also invested in bowling shoes. For only $24.95 4 adults & up to 6 kids can bowl 2 games a day all summer, at no additional cost. Renting bowling shoes costs $4, so that will add up fast. The bowling alley is close to home too.
My skates will look like these. I ordered men's black skates because they are wider.
