  • beans are so good for the heart
  • Beans are great sources of fiber, I count carbs for diabetes.
  • I try to remember that sugar is hard on my heart.
  • Sugar is my challenge. And it's always in the form of chocolate. I am working on it but very difficult to cut the cravings.
  • Controlling the sugar intake is the most challenging vice I have had to overcome in my life. Smoking was tough but not as tough as sugar. The challenge is that sugar is everywhere. I didn't have to worry about so many different facets of my life being snuck into my world. But sugar is being snuck into our world in so many things we eat.

    I am taking on this challenge as the biggest competitor I have yet had to face. I will beat this demon and remove it, from my world, except where I choose for it to be there, It will not nonconsensually beat me.
  • I'm working scaling back on sugar it's really hard work deconstructing old and bad habits. They die really hard but I got to tell ya, they got to die! So that I can live a strong, whole & health life with and for my family.....

    God bless, love, hugs & kisses!

  • I can't find any articles from legitimate websites that say canola oil is bad for you. In fact, the only ones who say that seem to be the same ones that think coconut oil is healthy. If you want to use that stuff, feel free, but I'm not getting anywhere near it.
    My LDL is 37 and I'm not about to risk that.

    The internet is a weird place. I was reading 10 Interesting Facts about Your Heart at https://www.youdrugstore.com/health/intere
    sting-heart-facts.html and I somehow ended up here. Lots of a good reads on SparkPeople, I even made an account because of this!
  • Great information!
  • Becky Hand seems stuck inthe past when giving us information about healthy fats and grains. Canola and soybean are NOT healthy oils. Grains, especially wheat, raise our blood sugars. Both groups create inflammation which is bad for our hearts.
  • Although this article is from 2011, I think most of the information is right on. We often hear that it's OK to eat egg yolks. Well yeah, but within reason and even the Egg Council admits that 25 to 30% of the population have a genetic need to limit dietary cholesterol. That's a LOT of people! I'm one of them. As for fats, yes HEALTHY fats are fine, but most people want to eat the chocolate cake not the oily salmon.
