Just went to the doctor who said that I am healthy, come back in a year.
Well, I have been working on being healthy, walking a mile at least three times a week, eating a lot of nuts, especially walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds (unsalted — salt raises blood pressure) since nuts lower blood pressure (I had previously been told I had high blood pressure). I eat bacon with lower sodium.
I had also previously been told I needed vitamin D and calcium, so I have been drinking orange juice with added vitamin D and calcium. I eat more fruits and veggies, including grapes which are good for the heart and prevent cancer. I take vitamins.
I eat a salad every day, less butter, more margarine. Instead of hamburgers all the time, roast beef without the fat and veggie burgers.
But I left a little room for the french fries!
Sorry doc, just turned 65. I deserve a break today!
