High Cholesterol

OK, so I have a new computer...a notebook. It's great to be able to update blogs, again.

I've been dealing with some health issues, lately. Most of my tests look good, so far, but I found out that I have high cholesterol...which is not too surprising, as my Mom was troubled with it. I did a lot to change my diet, over the years, but it looks like I'll have to get more focused. I know exercise is SOOoo important...and here I sit on this computer. Guess it's skim milk, from now on (I had already gone to 2%). I really don't eat a lot of chips or fries, so this shouldn't be too hard. I'll get the diet from my doctor in the mail, soon. I'm good at making small life changes, but the word "diet" just makes me want to eat all the unhealthy stuff I can get my hands on. I like taking walks and will do more of that, as the weather improves.

Well...just wanted to update this little blog. It's been so long. I'd love to hear from others who are dealing with high cholesterol. I sure love to eat, so any suggestions for guilt-free recipes will be appreciated.

Ultreya,

Bettina

Red wine is good for the cholesterol. I make sure I get enough...purely for health reasons, of course! ;)

I don't agree with Stephen, Wine is not good for anything, it's good only for headache!

try to adjust your food, and do exercises, this is the only way!

Good luck!

The natural way to deal with high cholesterol is to take Niacin Tests prove it works as well as lipitor, part of the B vitamins, red rice yeast, garlic in pill form or raw, Turmeric, Flax oils and fish oils. Exercise helps and a diet based on fish and chicken Not red meat also helps. Soy milk instead of cows milk.
these are some of the ways you can help yourself
