Since I started journaling I have made a point of having oatmeat with skim milk for breakfast each day. I try to have my biggest calorie meal at lunchtime, and the smallest for my evening meal. Snacks mid-afternoon (fruit of some king) and early evening (more fruit) seem to keep me from getting hungry. I am also tracking my fat grams and fiber grams daily. The fat because I have high cholesterol that can't be controlled with statins (bad reaction to each I have tried). And the fiber because I am aware that we should all have a certain amount of fiber in our lives to maintain good colon health. So there it is. I did Atkins in the past, and lost bunches of weight quickly. Unfortunately when I started adding non-Atkins back into my daily food intake the pounds returned just as quickly. So back to the food I would normally eat. It is slow, but it works.

I had a bad reaction to the statins also. My doctor has my cholesterol under control now with a med called welchol. I have not had a bit of trouble with it. I wish you all the best on your diet.

Make sure you're getting some exercise in there, too, since that also will help your cholesterol. Beyond colon health, fiber will also help lower cholesterol, BTW. Beans and legumes are a great source. Lots of veggies, too! Good luck! It's harder to do it through diet but there are lots of other health benefits too.

It's my understanding that Welcol is for a combination of high cholesterol and if you are diabetic. I am not diabetic but would like to know for sure.
