Anything Is Possible w\Workouts & Fruits - My Cholesterol Is DOWN, YES!
Wednesday, June 09, 2010
I had new bloodwork done the end of May and got my test results back this morning. It's official. I was able to get off the high cholesterol medication in three months. I have been working out as much as I can. I also made some changes to my food intake and started replacing my breakfast meals with frozen fruit and protein along with skim or almond milk. Well my cholesterol is under 159 in ONLY three months. When the doctor told me that I was like are you sure. She asked me what I had been doing and I told her I limited my meat intake to only a couple times per week. My rule is I only do four legged animals (beef and pork) now maybe once or twice a week at a maximum. All other two legged animals, chicken and turkey I eat a few days a week along with fish as much as I want. This is truly amazing to me. I asked the doctor if I should wean myself off and she said I could do that or I could just stop today. She will order bloodwork again in August to check my levels and that I should continue to do what I'm doing. I left there so happy and proud of myself. I haven't been able to work out as much with all the house and yard projects going on, but I'm going to try my best to get more miles in real soon. So cut back on your meat intake and just add more fruit and it will truly cleanse and heal the body. I am living proof that you can heal yourself with the right foods. Take one day at a time and push yourself to love yourself more and do something for you. SInce I hate to eat fruit all by itself when it's sitting in that fruit bowl, I pulled out my blender and got creative and started to freeze my fruits that would go bad on the counter. Now I have a nice cool healthy blend of fruit each day. What's crazy is that I feel like I'm cheating when I don't eat my fruit smoothie in the mornings. Now I only have eggs or salmon croquettes or oatmeal on the weekends.
So everyone, stay encouraged and keep fighting the good fight.
If you believe in your possibilities the sky is the limit.
