High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure
Monday, March 03, 2014
My nutritionist diagnosed me with high cholesterol and blood pressure last week. I can't say I'm surprised, but it's still hard to comprehend. I've pretty much eliminated all fast food. There's a strong history of heart disease in my family, though.
I begin every day with a bowl of steel cut oats with some type of fruit, like strawberries or banana. She recommended I eat fish and I grimaced. I cannot stand the taste of fish. When I asked if omega-3 supplements would help (along with losing weight), she said yes, but not as much.
I've been walking every day for 30 minutes, too, if not longer. Is anyone else in the same situation when it comes to fish? Most of my friends and family enjoy it, but not me. Nasty.
