Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,

I have read your query,feel concerned to answer you.

Weight reduction is very essential to keep heart diseases at bay.

Your currently overweight.Your expected weight should be around 60kgs.So you need to drop your weight by 10 kgs.

This reduction should be carried slowly(gradual process) over a period of atleast 3-4 months.

The ideal body mass index for your age is 21.9,so keep your BMI at around this value.

Have a regular brisk walk for 20min daily for atleast 5days of week.

Complete avoidance of junk and fat full foods.

Keep your daily fat intake to less than 20% of total calories.

Do not exceed total calorie intake of 2200cal to 2600cal a day.

Consume diet rich in protein.ex fish,egg,soya beans.

Daily breakfast with oat meal 40 gms taken in milk can produce faster results.

Keep yourself hydrated with adequate water of 3-4 liters of water a day.

Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.

Consume foods like avacado,baby onions,mushrooms,white garlic,spinach to improve your HDL cholesterol(good cholesterol) and lower LDL cholesterol( bad cholesterol).

Include more fruits in your diet.

Consume 90% meal at your home.

Avoid white foods.

Get most of your calories before noon.

Above all be very confident and compliant.

I hope this info is quite helpful to you.
Wish you a good health,
Thank you,
Take care

Hi, iam a 50 year old lady and a spinster. I have been taking avas 10 mg for the past two years for my high cholestrol levels. Though the levels have come down now, it is (LDL) is 153 which the doctoe says is high. I had recently gone for a health check up where my ECG showed some abnormality in V3 and V6 nodes. I was advised a TMTand did it for 8 minutes. The TMT says CSA is positive for inducible myocardial ischemia and 0.5mm st dep in inferior and V3-V6 leads noted during exercise and recovery. I do not have any other problems. Kinly advise me.
