Okay, now that we all know I have high cholesterol (at the tender age of 18, I'm so pissed)!... What do I do? I know I have to Exercise... I've been doing that for like, ages anyway. I'll just increase it to an hour a day instead of 30 minutes. But what I am really confused on is... WHAT THE HECK DO I EAT?
Doctor said to try a low-fat diet. Well, I know a low-fat diet isn't for me. I blow up like a balloon and I just don't feel like I have any energy on a low-fat diet. I've been doing low-carb. Whether low-carb is good for you, I do not truly know. But I do truly know low-fat is not the right route (for me anyway).
I've read somewhere that if one has high cholesterol, they should, in fact, eat more cholesterol. Now you may be thinking, "Well, why is that?" Well, a few sources have said that if you eat cholesterol you're body will not make it's own, and it will not save it. "Why?" you ask again. Because if you eat no cholesterol than you're body is like, "OMG, WE HAVE NO CHOLESTEROL, SAVE ALL WE HAVE! AHHH!"
At least, that's what those sources say. And the other source is simply the, "Eat as little cholesterol as you can."
WHAT DO I DO?!
*jumps off a cliff*
P.S Please make it quick, I'm hungry!
