I take meds for hypertension and cholesterol and I also take synthroid. About 6 months ago I started a low carb diet
for my overall health because heart disease is in my family. I cut out processed foods, bread, white potatoes, pasta, crackers, candy, cereal, desserts. My diet consists of salads with reduced fat dressings, salmon, chicken, tuna, occasional steak, green vegetables, occasional sweet potato, nuts, cottage cheese, greek yogurt and Atkins bars.
