OOPs.....thought I had started a new topic!
Please can a mod move it for me?
I knew better than get my yearly check-up during the holidays.....
Was in the neighborhood and dropped into the doc's for my labs.
Everything was perfect (total cholesterol =216...a bit high but has not changed for 10 years) except the LDL which was noted to be to high to count.
For those of you not up on the serum lipid lingo that means the serum was opaque with the lethal fats.
Not proud of this fact and may just reflect the lack of a gallbladder (anyone nauseated yet?) but more likely it is all the fudge I had been sampling (Christmas gifts! I swear!).
Every bite of every chunk tasted like the imported butter I splurged on.
Anyway....have started being a bit more careful about what I put in my mouth.
Even making dishes with recipes ( Livestrong mainly) I find on the cardiac health sites but getting pretty tired of eating bland cardboard.
I know how to read a label as well as twist a recipe to lower the bad fats but getting pretty tired of eating bland cardboard.
All I want to do is LOWER the fat content...not ELIMINATE it totally.
