i’m having another blood test in december 16, because my mom thinks olive oil is gonna give me high ldl cholesterol.(even though my doctor recommended it to increase my hdl) i’ve had high cholesterol since age 7, but got rid of it 4 months ago by taking away processed carbs.
but she still thinks the olive oil is gonna kill me(all fat=bad to her). she says if there is anything wrong with my blood work, i have to go back to my old diet(aka processed carbs).
my blood work in june was good, just some low hdl. i want December’s cholesterol results to be perfect to convince my mom. i got this advice from the V-Diet Q&A.
- supplement with fish oil(can’t have this, as my mom would freak if i eat another type of oil)
- eat ground flax seed(i put this in my oatmeal for breakfast)
know any tips to reduce ldl and increase hdl?
(i googled for info and found “advice” to remove all fats from diet, so i’m not using that again!)
