I just had some blood work done, and my doctor told me I have high cholestrol. Is there anything I need to do to manage it. She said I should get a letter in the mail, and to eat healthy and exercise and I have to come back in for a appointment in 3 months. I am trying to figure if this is why I would have this slight faint spells from time to time. What kind of healthy food should I be eating, do I have to stop eating fast foods? How often should I exercise? I have a membership at a gym, but don't like it when my hair sweats out my relaxer and rinse.
What if I am invited out to dinner at a restaurant what do I do in this case?
I am 5'5 my weight is 165 and my cholesterol level is 246.
as of now, I am unemployed so, yesterday I did go with friends to Bufflo wild wings and had 6 honey barabecue wings and a sprite. I do cook at home, but the day before yesterday I ordered a cheese stuff pizza from pizza hut. I also eat special k cereal, waffles for breakfast, or I will make grits and eggs for me and my daughter. For lunch we may eat a ham sandwich , I have been drinking pepsi from time to time. If my 2 year wants friench fries from mc donalds while we are at wal-mart I will get it for her and a chocolate chip frappe for me. I make red beans and rice and either fish or chicken for dinner. I love seafood, so sometimes I go get shrimp poor-boy. we both cholocate for a snack which are normally prenzel m& m's.-
I eat strawberries and grapes time to time, corn on the cob,baked and fried chicken, fish, peas, cucumbers salad's every once in a while with Italian dressing. Bananas and apples every once in awhile, love cabbage, beans and rice with smoked sausage. Love seafood but mostly eat fried shrimp.
does that mean no beef, or sausage or pizza.
