lowering cholesterol


Hi Everyone,

I had problems with one statin and now on atorvastatin which seems better so far. Did have real muscle problems. When you see in the paper comments like you are imagining the pain it does not help and Im sure I was not! Have also joined the couch to 5k sport walking group which has greatly increased my amount of brisk minutes walked per week and hope it reduces my cholesterol numbers!!

The best way to lower cholesterol is to eliminate simple carbohydrates from your diet:

- soft drinks

- fruit juices

-alcoholic beverages

- white flour products such as - white bread, white pasta, white pizza dough

- white rice, white potatoes

- desserts, crackers, cakes - avoid all sweets;

Eliminate all processed foods.

increase your daily consumption of fiber-rich foods:

- legumes - beans, chick peas, lentils, green peas, almonds;

- nuts and seeds - walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds;

- green vegetables especially - arugula (rocket or rochette), broccoli, rapini, kale, dandelion greens, bok choy etc...

- fruits - especially: apples, oranges, blueberries, blackberries;

If you follow these guidelines you bring your body in balance, and your weight to its natural level. Once this happens, it will potentially eliminate your need for medications assuming you don't have any other complicating medical conditions or factors.
