The part about cholesterol is misleading--- only a very small percentage of people have high cholesterol due to diet--cholesterol troubles are way more complex than oh, I ate eggs/bacon/cheese. The cause of clogged arteries is inflammation/injury to the arterial wall. Cholesterol is sent by the body to repair the damage wall--so we needn't worry about our cholesterol but rather what is damaging our arterial walls. No damaged walls--no cholesterol buildup.

All suggestions were very informative. The booze one cracked me up. This many drinks are OK but don't start if you already don't drink. Like who would do that? Just read studies on the positive effect of up to 3 cups of coffee having an effect on prostate and uterus cancer. I don't drink it and don't plan on starting to do so. Had to be caffeine and Italian style, though. Preferably organic. Still a no for me.

Beans are great sources of fiber, I count carbs for diabetes.

Sugar is my challenge. And it's always in the form of chocolate. I am working on it but very difficult to cut the cravings.

Controlling the sugar intake is the most challenging vice I have had to overcome in my life. Smoking was tough but not as tough as sugar. The challenge is that sugar is everywhere. I didn't have to worry about so many different facets of my life being snuck into my world. But sugar is being snuck into our world in so many things we eat.

I am taking on this challenge as the biggest competitor I have yet had to face. I will beat this demon and remove it, from my world, except where I choose for it to be there, It will not nonconsensually beat me.

I'm working scaling back on sugar it's really hard work deconstructing old and bad habits. They die really hard but I got to tell ya, they got to die! So that I can live a strong, whole & health life with and for my family.....

God bless, love, hugs & kisses!
