Lol, you crack me up. You can have real food and more than cherrios. lol
Food: Basicaly, if God made it, eat it. If man made it or messed with it - it's not good for you. Whole grains and raw veggies are THE best. Do 1
cup of oatmeal or beans EVERY DAY and you'll see that number drop pretty quickly. Add to that the whole grain bread in place of the white bread, add
lots of garlic (or more garlic) into your diet (or do the supliment form)....
Stop using corn oil, veggie oil, peanut oil ect and use good olive oil or, if needed, canola oil.
ahhh... let me just put this in an easier to read list form for you:
-No more than 2 cups of coffee per day.
-1 cup beans per day (yes, chilli counts :-)
-1 cup oatmeal (the REAL stuff, not instant) per day
-Add garlic and onions to everything you can. Take garlic tabs also. I get
2000 mg tabs for less than 5 dollars a jar. Not too expencive.
-Stay away from fast food and box stuff. If it grew that way - eat it.
-Whole grains, the more the better. Fiber!
-Olive oil (lowers bad cholesteral and raises the good cholesteral)
-Cellery - and other fresh, raw veggies. Cooked is better than not, but
fresh and raw is best.
I could go on and on, but these things will get your nubers as low as the doctor wants them to be in no time. If you follow these things above (count
cherrios as a whole grain food :-) then your number will be lower when you go back in 3 months for a recheck.
Also, not that any doctor will tell you this littler fact - the 'acceptable number' is much higher than they will tell you. But they can't sell
you medicine if they can't say something is wrong now can they?
