My Cholesterol came back on the high side (240), but instead of taking the meds, I decided to get serious about diet and exercise.
Cut down on the food. Cheerios for breakfast instead of eggs. Big salads for lunch, light dinner and grazing the rest of the day. I get to the gym three times a week for about 350 calories of workout (not much, but something).
I was already on diet Coke, but I ditched that for water.
I'm down 8 pounds in six weeks. Not hungry at all. I hope I can keep it up. I think I can. Less travel for business has helped. Hard to say no when the client or banker is paying.
Anyway. Nice work aubashbrother. 26 pounds. Impressive.
Aerobic exercise has protective effects against cardiac ischemia that are independent of weight lose----not an insignificant thing for those with high cholesterol...
