High Cholesterol

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Well, another rainy day today here in Oregon. We are lucky though, so many are flooded around us. Our backyard is like a swamp. Still doing my bike five days a week. I went to have blood work done, for my upcoming yearly dr. app. Our is well except I have High Cholesterol. So that is my new goal, to get that down. I can not take medicene , as I get muscle cramps, up by my upper body. , which is a bad thing. Does anyone know where I can get a list of foods I can eat/ cannot eat?

    My cholesterol dropped like a lead balloon in 6 months by eating steel cut oats with flax seed every day! I now have a triglyceride of 74!!!! That was a 148 point drop in 6 months! Total dropped 27 points. Adding the oats was the only change. If you want the recipe I use let me know by a comment on my spark page or spark mail and I'll send it to you in spark mail.

    I agree with CRAZYDOGLADYBO ... and there is a lot here on SparkPeople .... another good thing to do is complete your nutrition chart daily as it will let you know when you are going over the magic 300 mark .... I also have high cholesterol but so far have had no problem with the simvastatin .... my DH suffers like you and he has adopted a healthy morning shake that includes omegas, wheat germ, psyllium, flaxseeds, strawberries, 100% fruit concentrate, blueberries, whey powder, banana .... it is really good and has helped him lower his LDL and total cholesterol ....

    I would google foods that help with cholesterol and start there. Also google foods that are bad for cholesterol.
