All right here is the problem. My wife went in for her normal check up and her cholesterol was 235 or 238 and they asked if she wanted statins. She wisely said no and they sent her a bunch of literature to read about how to control cholesterol the government way. Aargh. With her being a nurse by profession she diligently read all the information and last night told me what the diet had to be based on.
I as politely and without any undo concern in my voice told her that those pamphlets not only were outdated but the best way to end up with higher cholesterol and diabetes. Maybe a little too much to throw at her in the first conversation.
She said that she is willing to read any papers or abstracts that I can send her that support my views but, and it is a big but she isn't going to read a book or anything that is overly complicated.
My go to site for this kind of things is http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.com/
, does anyone have anything bookmarked from marks daily apple or another fairly easily read site that can offer a good counterpoint to traditional views.
Any help would be appreciated and I will spend some time researching this weekend just hoping you guys can help me get a head start!
