My new numbers
Sep 27, 2001
Hi everyone,

Just wanted to post my new #s! Here's a comparison from 6 months ago to now:

March 2001

HDL---- 63
TG----- 85
VLDL--- 17
TC/HDL -4.44

September 2001

HDL----- 53
TG------ 63
VLDL---- 13

What I did differently was to lower the fat content of my special diet for ulcerative colitis. I switched from whole milk yogurt to 1%, half &half frozen yogurt to 1% frozen yogurt and limited cheese, sausage, bacon, etc. I still eat plenty of lean meat, hard and dry curd cottage cheeses, fish (lots of sardines and salmon), olive oil, egg whites, veggies,fruits, "bread" and muffins (made with nut flour). I eat NO GRAINS, including any corn in any form and no potatoes. Once a week I'll make a 2-egg omelette with a side of bacon or sausage, and I still enjoy a good steak on the grill!

In addition to lowering fat, I've also added weight lifting to my exercise regimen. (Gals, I highly recommend Dr. Miriam Nelson's Strong Women Stay Young program). I've been walking 2-2.5 miles a day for the past 2 years--we live in the mountains so it's up/down some pretty steep hills.

Think I'll stick with this regimen since it's working well for me, but as always, your mileage may vary.
