Thank you in advance for taking time to answer my concerns. I am not well educated in the term of nutrition at all. If you can give me some advice I would realy appreciate it, becasue eating is becoming tedious and unpleasant now that I am on a low cholesterol diet.
I was told by my Dr. that my cholesterol was 383. I am 33 years old, 5'9 227 lbs. I told to my dr. to change my eating habits and cut out cholesterol, I have been placed on tricor medication.
I am getting very exhausted eating fish and beans each day, toasted bread with margarine EVERYDAY! It's been a month and I can't find anything to eat at work and get home bored and tempted to eat some MEAT or enjoy something tasty. Can you help me in suggesting what may be some good recipes or low cholesterol ideas, so that I could eat with the rest of my family and friends. I don't know enough to know what I can and can not eat and my choices seem limited.
Thank you again,
Thank you for your nutrition question. Eating healthy does'nt have to be unpleasant. Just visit the following website www.mypyramid.gov and it will help you create a diet plan that is healthy and tailored to your tastes. Just enter your age, gender, and activity level and it will give you an eating plan that will help to lower your cholesterol. It also contains healthy recipes that are delicious!
Another website I would recommend you visit is www.juiceblend.com It has a product called Juice Plus which contains the nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables. I would suggest this product to you also because many of my patients have had success with it.
I believe you will enjoy the following no cholesterol smoothie!
Fresh fruit smoothie
3 cups peeled chopped apples or bananas or strawberries or mangoes (or use any other fresh, frozen, unsweetened or canned fruit, drained)
1 1/3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ice cubes
2 tablespoons granulated sugar (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place all ingredients in blender; cover.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into tall glasses and serve!
