White meat - chicken and turkey. Also fish.
Red meat - too high in fat.
Reduce your cholesterol by eating oatmeal in some form every day either in cookies or snack bars. Cholesterol sticks to oatmeal and passes out the body quickly. I call it the cholesterol magnet.

I had a major heartattack on oct. 1, 2017. I m not sure what reciepes would be good for me. It s rather difficult to buy some foods since I am on a fixed income. I am also not a veggie fan, I do like carrots, peas, green beans, mixed veggies, spinach, potatoes, sweetpotatoes. Fruits are apples, bananas, pears, peaches, oranges, grapes, pineapple. Meats are pork, chicken, beef, some fish. All the meals I cook are usually meat, potatoes, and a veggie. All my fruits and veggies come in cans which I do know isn t the healthiest. So what can I do. thank you very much,
Good afternoon. I am a female who will be 31 in July, I am not on any medication at. I weigh approx 13st 11 and try to exercise for 2-3hours weekly (running, badminton & tennis). For about 6months I have experienced missed heart beats with a sudden strong heart beat, which makes me breathe in deeper and feel a little light headed at times. I can feel this in my chest. I have a pulse of 71 - 80 BPM with a missed heart beat about 4-6 times per minute at rest and a pulse of 146-152 BPM with a missed heart beat of 8-14 times after an hour of tennis. I only have coffee in a morning (1 - 2 cups), I eat regular fruit and vegetables, I take vitamin suppliments and have take aways probably once a month. I don t like salt so try not to eat processed foods and never add salt to my food/cooking. Most of the foods we eat consist of pasta, bread & rice (all carbs!!) but include fish, veg, red meat & white meat There is no apparent reason for the missed beats, they are all the time, in bed, watching tv, at work, in the bath, driving, walking, excercising etc. It is frustrating and a little worrying to say the least Is this normal or should I see my GP? thank you Nicola Lee
Good evening, Dr. Thank you for being available. I had a stroke about 2 weeks ago...no residual damage but fatigue and loss of appetitie. I am 65 but am in excellent shape, which is why I am still alive for sure! In doing followup tests, my PCP has discovered I am anemic, low on iron and have a uriniary tract infection. I have a couple of questions...are these conditions related in any way to the stroke and what foods can I eat that are iron rich (I just started taking a TBSP of molasses every day) in addition to iron drops my doctor will prescribe. I know abut leafy greens, liver, etc....any other thoughts? My dr. is great but he doesn t give me much information about nutrition. thank you
