DREAMGIRL, I went across the street to my family doctor about
a year ago, maybe two, and had them check my cholesterol. Had never ever had it checked. Overall was 157. My good cholesterol was not as high as she wanted, was in the upper 50's but the bad cholesterol was a good deal under 200. The reason for the fish oil 3 times a day was to raise my good cholesterol up more. I haven't had it checked since unless it was done during all that blood work back in February when they kept me in the ER overnight. Sure I eat more chicken than anything else, but I also eat salads quite often. I eat bananas. I eat cantaloupe and musk melon. I eat Dannon Activa yogurt which is good for you. Do not fry anything to eat in this house. I do however have to avoid anything acidic due to reflux like coffee, orange juice, soft drinks, been trying to add them back a little bit to see if I can tolerate them, but I do think they are giving me problems again. And I am barely overweight. And am working at getting that back off. I had at one time back in 2000 gotten up to 180. I lost 53 pounds on my own to get it back off. I had gained some back, but only about
half and have gotten 12 of that back off. So I don't feel I am in that bad a shape. I just got off the treadmill after 10 minutes and had no chest pain upon exercising. And since my chest tightens up with reflux anyway, just about
always relieved by belching, then I think it is strictly what it is, reflux. I don't know what this diet is that Selmer is on either.
