Well, my doctor said i should lower my colestserol, and prescribed me with an aspirin and simvastatin tablet daily. To help lowering the cholesterol, i changed my diet. I eat cereal for breakfast, a light lunch, and sometimes a fruit for dinner. after 4-5 weeks i have been able to about 16-18lbs. I used to weight around 180-182, and now I am at 166lbs. The thing is, i havent done that much exercise. I play soccer 2 times a week, and since I live in 2 floor building I have to go up/down the stairs, but thats it. So my question is, can food diet in itself be enough for losing weight? I am concerned because even tho I am happy with getting back to my normal weight, I dont want to think is one of the medications that the doctor prescribed.
