Your total cholesterol
should be less than 200. HDL
should be greater than 40, LDL less than 150, and triglycerides should be less than 160. 81 mg Aspirin
is great, but YOUR DIET IS WHAT REALLY MATTERS!!!! You should reduce your fats: saturated fat
intake should be no more that 7% of your diet. Also reduce trans fats. Cheeseburgers are LOADED with fats, so is sausage. Try turkey burgers and turkey sausage. You should eat at least 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day. Eat good grains for breakfast (Cheerios are great). No matter how much exercise you are getting daily, you must combine it with a healthy diet to receive positive results. If you continue eating all the foods high in fats, carbs, and cholesterol, you can end up with clogged arteries and die of a heart attack
, which I am sure your health care provider has informed you of.
PS. Raswell R is full of crap. I don't know where he is getting his information from, but it is a load of bull!!! I am a registered nurse and have been taught all the dangers of cholesterol and how is leads to atherosclerosis
. Cholesterol leads to plaque
build up in your arteries. I don't know what this guy is trying to do, but his information is FALSE!!!
