Lowering Cholesterol

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I did not realize that gaining weight would have such a profound influence on my cholesterol. I haven't been as dedicated to losing as I should, i.e. my cholesterol number is approaching 400!

Today is the day that I'm changing my harmful habits! I'm committed to:

1) walk more (60 minutes a day)
2) eat oatmeal for breakfast
3) drink black tea (Earl Grey)
4) drink more water (up to 8 glasses)
5) avoid fats (except the good ones, i.e., avocado, nuts, olive oil etc. !)

I am determined to not take medication, which means that I must lose 30 pounds.

I will do this!

    Great plan. I have to take the stuff because of a stent, but the doc said to take CoQ10 along with it. At least I take the lowest dose.
