WFMW: Lowering Cholesterol tips
Happy Wednesday to you! It's time once again to post another WFMW tip.

Yesterday I had an appointment with a nutritionist to discuss my high cholesterol levels and what to do about them. You can read about some of the details right here.

The nutritionsit shared a website link with me that offers a PDF file for A Guide To Lowering Your Cholesterol with TLC at the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute. It's pretty good, check it out!

The nutritionist also gave me some helpful handouts that I've scanned in to my computer. They include:

1) General Tips for Healthy Dining Out

2) Physical Activity Pyramid

3) 1600 Calorie Sample Menus

4) Menu Planning Guidelines

If you're interested in receiving any of these handouts, leave me your email in the comments section, specifying which handouts interest you, and I'll send them out to you.

Depending on the level of interest, it may take me a few days to get to you, but fear not, I will get them emailed to you!

Sharing healthy eating tips from the nutritionist works for me. To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

I am interested in any info you have. My doctor also had me do a colon cleanse when I started. It got rid of the bloated tummy feeling. It doesn't sound fun but it is a lot better than harsh laxatives. I do it about once a month and really, nothing to it.

Healthy eating helped me a lot.

My doc tested me and said I had some high cholesterol but it wasn't enough to worry about taking meds. This is a good reminder that I could really be more careful with my email is and all the handouts would be good but I am esp interested in the exercise and meal planning. Thanks!!
