I"m 26 and found that my cholesterol is through the roof. I have a month before I go back to see if it came down. What should I be doing though? The doc did give me some information, but I eat healthy..well most of the time. I stay away from fast food, don't smoke, but don't run enough and love mexican food.
I don't understand avoiding avocados...i love them..and they're a good fat. What should I be looking for on labels? I've been thinking as long as the saturated fat is zero/ really low than I should be ok..but then I see there is cholesterol also listed..??
I really don't want to take cholesterol medicine at 26. Both my parents do take it; I knew it was coming..but at 26? I'm not overweight, in good shape. I'm paranoid now.
I just need information. I don't know what is right or wrong out there.
