I am Kara. I am an RN. I am 25 (almost 26) years old. I am on fatsecret because I find the Android app easy to use, I LOVE IT. I was on weight watchers, but went off of it because my cholesterol is THROUGH THE ROOF and weight watchers doesn't really help ...

More Lower cholesterol! Info



karakarakara's top tips

1.Less than 200mg cholesterol a day allowance, staying within daily calorie amount.
2.Edit your diet journal (in account settings) so that cholesterol is tracked.
3.Exercise! But don't go crazy. Diet does more to lower LDL, exercise helps to increase HDL.

About / History

I am only 25 years old and battle high cholesterol. I have a VERY high LDL (in the 170's) and a low HDL. Diet changes are NOT an option. I am too young for this, and I don't need to go on medications. I'm going to eat what I want, in moderation, as long as I keep the cholesterol down!
