I had very high cholesterol before this diet -- over 340. I tried niacin, exercise, but nothing really brought it down. I figured it had to be genetic. I decided with my doctor's advice, that I would go on a statin. I had been on one once before and gotten joint pain. He put me on one that is new wand not supposed cause pain. So far so good.
I am supposed to go in and get tested for cholesterol next week. Everything I have read says eat a low cholesterol diet. However I find this hard to do on Paleo. I do eat good fats, avocado, olive oil, etc. However, I do eat eggs, meat, and other high fat foods. I'm trying to eat more tuna, salmon, fish.
Does anyone have a suggestion for how to eat low cholesterol on this diet? Thank you very much.
