Jicama Crab Tacos
Cholesterol Testimony from my client Deb:"I don?t know if you remember me, but I did your month long consult package last year in May. You convinced me to go off statins and I was getting ready for my son?s wedding. I wanted to let you know I finally got enough courage to go get my blood work done and found a doctor that doesn?t get too worked up about cholesterol.
I want to thank you for your post on the ?LDL determination? regarding if it is large and fluffy. I brought that into the doctor and she ordered me a whole extension blood work up. I am thrilled to say I have a large and buoyant pattern!! In addition, the great news since I changed my eating habits, due to you, is I dropped my triglycerides from 199 to 86!! My HDL increased from 46 to 57!!
PS: Just an fyi, my husband has REALLY benefited from your suggestions and my new cooking habits, as his triglycerides dropped to 68 and his C-Reactive Protein was 0.39. Oh yes, he went off his statins as well!! J"
Deb and I cleaned out her pantry. This detrimental "gluten-free" family staple is no longer lingering in her house!
