Hi dear Kirsten,

I plan to visit a gym just because of my health condition. And, my heart speed is normal but the pressure is already high. Despite the blood pressure, I've held pretty high good cholesterol and law bad cholesterol, however, it's gonna quickly change when I start. I used to be a vegan, then a vegetarian, non-strict vegetarian, now, for a couple of years I ate only fish (non-strictly) and have found that that's not the best food the purpose (even the mine, for a recreational sport). Perhaps, there'll be a lot of eggs (as the main source of proteins) and a very high negative cholesterol thereof. Any advice on how to hold down the cholesterol (except any phytosterols like the soy's phytosterols, plz)? I try to consider beta-Hydroxy beta-methyl butyric (HMB) what would be the single supplement which had been developed rather for the decrease of the cholesterol levels than for any commercial purpose as a sports supplement (as it's labeled and sold now) but there were published more studies providing a counter-evidence of the efficiency, maybe you can know more about it or can have got better ideas. Thnx for any ideas : )

Best regards,
J. Vysvader

    Hi @vysvader
    It sounds like you could do with speaking to a medical professional? Can you speak to your GP or pharmacist?

    Hi Sam_Scope,

    Thnx for your reply. For a GP, firstly, one needs a health issue, consequently, can speak about it. For a high blood pressure, I don't really want any pharmaceutics. Pharmaceutists are reaching a very wide range of knowledge which doesn't particularly cover the field of food nutrition (only peripherally), despite their medicine and chemistry-based insight related to the topic they don't study food nutrition. One may suppose people from food nutrition being the specialists in their own, those are having the deepest knowledge in the very narrowed field. I don't have almost any knowledge, so that's why I came to a professional.

    But I got your point.

    Best regards,
    J. Vysvader
