Cholesterol lowering is my priority over calorie counting

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 5:01 PM filed under Weight Loss postings

I had the oil fish for dinner last night with blanched brocolli florets and some cinnamon nectarines. The fish had great texture and good flavour. Nothing happened to me today.... so far so good.  Check out the oilfish recipe in my Low Cholesterol recipe section.

I also took a brisk walk to the video store after dinner and back (Tip: Get motivation walking to a desired destination that's not food related) to help me burn some more calories off. All in all, that walk probably burnt up about 90 calories. Hey,  I am getting more calorie conscious and am getting educated on this as I go along. And I nearly bought a peanut choc bar but the calories on it was 216, which was just too ridiculous. The input (216) and output (90) just didn't match up, so I decided not to buy it. Hooray! (Lifestyle Tip: think about what your are putting in and how you are burning it off - is it balanced?)

I tried counting calories and cholesterol using the Fitclick tools, but so far, using the tool is slow (maybe it's my bandwidth) and something seems fishy with the calorie counters on normal foods vs commercially/branded recommended meals. Having evaluated what I've been doing, overall I've concluded that I will still be more focussed on reducing cholesterol (priority) than calories. And I am still conscious about what types of food I am eating and whether it is contributing to my well being or not.
