High Cholesterol...Who ME?

Last Thursday I was 'lucky' enough to go to my Internal Medicine Doctor to find out my Cholesterol is through the roof...ugh!  I was placed on statins over two years ago but 'kind of' stopped taking them because I didn't feel well while on them.  He switched the medication but I still seemed to have issues.  So with seemingly no other options, I decided to go vegan for 6 months.  Yikes, this could be hard.  After reading many articles regarding lowering cholesterol naturally this seems like the last option for me.  I sure hope I can make it!  If your worried about recipes, don't worry about it, I still have a family to cook for and they (the boys) always need to eat!

  1. Mine was high at the time I found out I had Diabetes2. I started drinking 4 cups of hot brewed green tea per day. This along with a better diet my cholesterol is well under check. I use Bigelow Green Tea. My uncle started this also and dropped his cholesterol also. Good Luck Mark

  2. Thanks Mark, sorry to hear about the Diabetes hope you're feeling better. I drink Green Tea as well! I most likely need to up the intake however!

  3. Good luck! This will be a great blogging adventure. My roommate and I have decided to go vegan for the rest of January, just as an experiment.
