Hubby & I, in a Cholesterol diet contraversy.
My husband has had 3 heart attacks.(12 years ago).At first,he was fairly careful with his diet, but after all this time,being on cholesterol medication,his cholesterol level has been way down low,right where it should be,and he is not overweight. But the problem is, even though he eats cereals,and roughage,and nuts,fruit and all the healthy things you should be eating to keep your cholesterol level healthy, he thinks,that because his level is down,and he is on medication, this gives him permission to eat full fat ice cream, hot dogs,french fries,chips,and a BLT every week. I thought,that especially if you've had a previous heart attack,you shouldn't be eating those things anymore. Need opinions,thanks.
