She told me out of the 8 possible heart attack risk factors, I "almost" had one. :(
I was a couple of months short of completing 40 years of age and I guess little pest things like cholesterol can't be played with anymore.
No, I am not a fast food lover, I hate fast foods and I can't stand fried foods. My problem has always been dairy, I love milk, creams, cheeses of all kinds, ice cream, pastries, you get the picture.
To make matters worse, I enjoy the fattiest dairy there is, triple cream brie, Haagen Dazs ice cream, home made stroagnoff with filet mignon and heavy cream...my poor arteries never had a chance...!
Now, my doctor gave me a couple of months to loose weight and drop all the super fatty stuff, forced me to see a nutritionist and I started to take things seriously.
I dropped real Haagen Dazs ice cream for low fat or fat free sorbet, stopped buying my so beloved triple cream brie, replaced Mozzarella for low fat Mozzarella, bough low fat Parmesan, replaced 2% milk with Fat Free milk, all this sacrifices for 2 months, plus a minimum of 40 minutes of a brisk walk daily.
Did another round blood work and to my surprise, after dropping all the real fatty dairy my bad cholesterol shoot up like crazy, at least my good cholesterol also went up.
I was still super confused.
My doctor was ready to put me on Lipitor or any other equivalent to reduce cholesterol.
I am strongly against taking medication if I can avoid it, and to take this medication for me was accepting defeat, and I am not one to accept defeat, I will tell you that much!
I got really upset with this freaking cholesterol situation, after watching everything I ate for 2 months, I see the reversed results, WHAT! It sounded like a bad joke!
Gil spoke with his mom about it and she told us a BRAZILIAN NATURAL recipe to DISSOLVE CHOLESTEROL FROM YOUR ARTERIES!! TAKE NOTE!
I introduce to you!!!!!!
My new best friend: THE EGGPLANT! :)
|My newest BFF!! The Eggplant! :)|
Super simple, wash it well, slice it up and throw it in the blender whole, add some water, if you like add some Orange juice to improve the super veggie taste, come on people, I am not a vegan :)
|Don't Peel it, just throw it in the blender and juice it up!|
You have to do this 3 times a day.
I know, it's a pain in the butt if you have to go to work, you can't just take your blender and your Eggplants with you.
Just prepare it in the morning and drink your morning dose before breakfast, take the one for your mid-day lunch break with you to work, and take your third time when you come back home at night.
If you do this for 3 months, the cumulative effect of the Eggplant in your system will make you start loosing weight! YES, you heard me right, loose weight, not only you will burn that nasty cholesterol from your arteries, you will loose weight like crazy.
One simple effect from drinking this VEGAN Eggplant juice 3 times a day is that I really feel full, and only eat about one full meal a day.
The darn juice really curbs your appetite.
Hey, it's not as tasty as a milkshake, but I will take Eggplant juice 3 times a day and preserve my liver from being bombarded with Lipitor or it's competitors, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
NOW, I can't wait to go see my doctor again in 2 months.
I will post the results for your appreciation.
Let's see how good this Eggplant diet works.
You can also eat Eggplants cooked in every different way, it helps.
Well, I mean, try to avoid Eggplants like my mother makes them a Milanese, loaded with Mozzarella, and ground beef in between, yes, my mother makes an Eggplant Lasagna that is to die for, literally.
Not me, I am drinking my Eggplant juice and can't wait to go have my labs done again and share the good news with you all. :)
Oh, Gil is doing it with me, just for the hell of it. He is enjoying it.
He is a great husband and wants to help me out with this battle.
He is doing a great job and I am proud of him.
We have both been doing the Eggplant diet for 2 weeks now and both have lost 10 pounds each, we feel less lazy and more energetic.
We have been looking for some of our old jeans and having a blast seeing that they fit again. HA!
Thank you Eggplants! You are a kind gift of nature!
NO JOKE! I say it's working already!
|Eggplant FEST at Ray & Gil's everyday, 3 times a day!|
