M,

I would ask your doctor for a referral to see a registered dietitian. That person can help create a meal plan specific to your needs.

Hope that helps,

Hi, everyone!

I need a little help here. I was just informed that I need to actively pursue a low carb and low cholesterol diet for a while. My annual physical showed my cholesterol and hemoglobin (blood sugar) levels are a little higher than the standard range they accept as healthy. I am by no means in the danger zone but due to family history it would be safer/easier to bring them down now and keep an eye on them better. I'm building up to an active workout schedule, which I know will help as well, but here's my question:

where in the world do I start to understand what changes I need to make in my diet?

I don't have a horrible diet, however being more consistent with the healthy options is a first step. But from there, what are some substitutions or exclusions that I could try and work in to compensate, not to mention some resources I can use to point me in the right direction?

Thanks ahead of time for the input!
