That's awesome! How did you discover what works for you? I am new here and also new to high cholesterol. I also have diabetes and high blood pressure which is very well controlled.

All of this has proven to be a huge and very important challenge of my life. I am hoping to learn what I can do and how to handle the menu side and process of the foods that can help.

*Grace* for the Journey

find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 19 pounds in 5 weeks. i cook

4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

portion sizes are critical to your success. exercise has to become a way of life. good luck
