"You will die in 10 years."

Thursday 22 February 2007 at 3:30 pm Mmmm, Cholesterol.That's pretty much what my doctor said to me on Tuesday. My cholesterol is 300+ and I weigh 263.4 pounds, not horrible for someone 6' 4" tall but still not great, and according to my doctor I have a very good chance of dying of some heart disease related death in the next 10 years unless I do something about it. I thought drinking grapefruit juice and taking my Omega-3 daily supplement would do it, and maybe it has, but the doc said that wasn't enough.

So Jen (my wife) did a bunch of research, and learned that it's less about cholesterol in the food you eat, and more about the saturated fat. I guess the body takes the saturated fat and turns it into cholesterol in your body. So I've dramatically reduced the amount of saturated fat I eat. No more cheese or fatty red meat for the next 3 months. Plus I'm eating more dietary fiber now, supposedly that's good for me too. A little FiberSure in a fruit smoothie every morning does the trick.

My goal is to be under 250 in both weight and cholesterol by May 19th, 2007. I'll succeed.
