    No pizza for me, damnit.

    My last lab work came back with elevated cholesterol. I'm trying to be good and stay away from foods with a lot of it, but people at work order pizza on a weekly basis and I LOVE pizza.

    Twice now I've stayed away from it, but it sure does suck not having a slice. Anybody else go through this?

    Sorry to hear that Ken. Somebody needs to invent the cholesterol-reducing pizza. The more you eat, the healthier you become

    My mom got told she had high cholestorol last week but all she has done to combat it is buy a pack of low-cholestorol butter

    She still eats a lot of stuff that's bad for her despite me saying "You can't have that etc..." and being given a diet sheet by the doctor saying what she can and can't have.

    What's the point in going to a doctor if you're not going to take their advice?

    I have been taking it more seriously lately. I'm reading nutritional labels on everything. I didn't realize that ONE Egg McMuffin has 87% of Cholesterol for a 2,000 calorie a day diet. Now, I'm 6'7" so my caloric intake is more than that, but still. That's insane.

    I was not aware of that!

    Shit, and I love those as well!

    I'm taking more of an active interest in what I eat nowadays. I think I owe it to myself because of all the health problems other members of my family are going through.

    Best of luck to you, although if you're doing your research then you're already on the right track

    One slice probably won't kill you. Instead of going cold turkey, try just cutting back.
