Anyone who knows me will tell you that I eat like a 7 year old. I like Fruity Pebbles for breakfast. Until February this year instead of milk I would use half and half or even heavy cream. Then I got a cholesterol test!
The doctor said my number, a little over 200 wasn't high enough for medication but I should watch what I eat. So I pretty much cut out creams and sauces and now I put skim milk on my Fruity Pebbles.
Another thing they do when you give blood now is they tell your cholesterol history. I went from a 219 on February 19 to 181 on October 13 this year. Glad to see that. I don't know the ratio but right now I'm just happy with the number.
