Hi everyone, was just told my cholesterol is 9.3 shocked is not the word. even my doc was shocked. I am a female, 57yrs old 5' 3" 9st 3lbs (same number as my cholesterol) I have COPD and am a coeliac. Being coeliac restricts my diet hugely as it is, but ive got 3mths to re-invent my diet. I did bake and eat cakes and biscuits regularly as Free From foods are really really pricey, so I'll stop baking bread/cakes/biscuits and buying them too. I'll akso cut out the sweets (sugar is my big big problem). I already use sunflower spread and rapeseed oil. I also have a dairy and soya intolerance so very little dairy passes my lips. I do have a family history of heart/stroke mum, gran, aunts big brothers so the doc has given me this chance under sufferance lol lol. I'd be grateful for any tips xx
