Re: Thoughts on my dietician's response to me?

2 problems with dietician, the latter of which I will discuss with her when I see her in a month or so.

1. Bacon
2. Skim milk vs. whole milk

In your situation, I would avoid milk altogether. Your triglycerides are through the roof, you need to keep those sugary things in check.

If you have a sit down appointment in a month you may want to keep a food log to take. Note down everything you eat. That way you have a baseline of I eat this and did this workout for a month.

Lots of fiber and water. Id recommend 30-40grams a day through vegetables and/or an addition of psyllium husk(gluten free) to your diet.

Beyond that, stay away from gluten and processed sugar. They are the primary causes of raising cholesterol levels beyond the predetermined levels of genetics.

you mentioned in your last thread in the fitness area about your LDL being unreadable and you triglycerides being 13-something, I was making a leap of faith that you meant something over 1000 for your LDL to be unreadable. If I am incorrect then could you explain what is up with you LDL or give a real number of some kind?

Eating large amounts of sucrose, HFCS and other simple sugars found in many processed foods may increase levels of serum triglycerides but minimally processed sources of carbohydrate such as whole grains, legumes and fruit are not a cause for concern.
