A year ago my LDL was 239! my doctor wanted to put me on the pill but I refused, Since then I have drastically made a huge change in my eating habits: I eat a huge variety of vegetables and nuts, Salmon and Sardines are the only kind of meats I eat, my diet is very rich in fiber rich foods, avoid sugar, drink plenty of water, take Omega 3 supplements religiously daily, and also added a daily exercise routine into my lifestyle. I walk an average of about 65 to 80 miles a week, so I am pretty physically active, and as a result have lost 43 lbs!!
Last week a co-worker of mine bought everyone in the office a 12 oz. Mcdonald's Vanilla shake and fruit cake. I didn't really wanted to have any of it, but I felt bad since she went through the trouble and expence I couldn't just say no, so I end up having the shake and the fruitcake too! I am curious as to how long the added cholesterol from eating the shake and the fruitcake (((((will remain or be flashed out from my system?))))) considering this is the first time in a very long time I had eating anything this high in cholesterol!!!View Thread
