Got bloods done and my cholesterol is at level 7, bad cholesterol is 4.5. Im a 24 year old male that weighed at that time 89kg, Im getting tested again in about a month and a half and if it hasnt dropped by then im going on statins. I quit smoking on the day I was told and a alcohol havent touched either since and dont plan on except alcohol on certain occasions ( I was a heavy binge drinker), go to the gym 3 days a week now, walk and cycle on the other days, eat properly using benecol products, eating lots of veg and fish and taking cod liver oil and eating almonds. Ive dropped my weight down to 86.5kg and plan on getting it much lower. Will all this make a significant enough difference so that in a month and a half I will have a sizeable drop in my results to avoid taking statins? Anyone else done something similar ?
