Lowering My Cholesterol As A Vegan

Part-Time Vegan

I have been living a vegan lifestyle for 5 days now and it hasn't been too bad. My vegan way of life will be part-time. Two to three days out of the week, I will have egg whites or fish for dinner and once a  month, I will have a treat meal. My husband talked me out of going extreme to lower my cholesterol and I agreed. I broke down on Sunday and broiled some salmon which I had with my kale salad.

The hardest part is figuring out what I'm going to eat on a daily basis and how to incorporate vegan meals with what my husband is eating. Sometimes he forgets that I'm on a restrictive diet and last night, he asked if I wanted some ice cream. A lot of my meals have had a heavy carbohydrate focus.  I need to make sure not to go overboard on the carbs even though they are complex carbs. Getting protein in my daily diet will be a challenge and I need to go more research on this. 

To make sure I get good results in three months, when I redo my cholesterol test, I have decided to take in at least 25 grams of fiber a day. Studies have shown that a high fiber diet can reduce cholesterol levels by 15-20 percent. I start my morning with a FiberOne bar and a piece of fruit or V8 juice. My client suggested that I eat oatmeal but I have to leave the house very early in the morning. Breakfast is usually in my car. Today on Facebook, I came across a new bar that is more natural. I went online to ordered it. It has 12 grams of fiber compared to the 9 grams in FiberOne. When I receive the bars, I will let you know how they taste and if I will be switching brands.

Tonight, a southwestern salad with black beans and corn is on the menu and my husband, he will be have rib tips with his salad. My willpower is STRONG!
