My husband has high cholesterol. I have read some things but I am still having a difficult time meal planning for him. He works very hard and burns a lot of calories. My biggest concern is making sure he eats enough to balance out his hard work and energy.
I am finding it difficult feeding him. He is not a salad/fruit eater.He usually grabs an egg & meat sandwich in the a.m. ( fastfood ) His typical lunch is sandwiches w/mayo/cheese and he usually always chooses ham/roast beef or pastrami/liverworst/tuna fish, cottage cheese,drinks = v-8/water/gatorade. . Dinners usually, beef/chicken/hot dogs/ sometimes fast food or pizza...yeah I see the bad things he is eating as I write this. The only thing I can do to help is change what we eat, how I cook and what I prepare for his lunches. He needs his energy. I so worry about him. He is the hardest working man I've ever known. I love him so much, I just want to take the right steps....
Does anyone know.....is beer bad for cholesterol...he is a big time beer drinker and that I can't control...but if it is, I will bring it to his attention.
Thank you for your help. Any advice/info is much appreciated.View Thread
