You're Bloomin' Crazy
My husband had his cholesterol checked at work. The bad chol. was around 160; the good was 20 something. So they're telling him he needs to raise his good cholesterol. We looked on the Internet. One of the best ways to raise the good stuff is to eat, and I'm not making this up, one half of a raw onion every day. Or, he could drink the juice one whole onion. Or, if he wanted to cure his baldness, he could put the juice on his head and sit in the sun.
He could do any one of these three. I would personally like to see him do all three because that's just how sweet I am. (We have a friendly rivalry sort of thing).
Here is the oddest part: All of the directives for raising the good stuff advise doing things he already does, or changing things that do not apply. For instance, he rides his bike almost everyday to work and home. He does not look 44. He does not have a tummy or other mid-life things going on. He's just not heavy at all. He can wear our 18 year old's clothes. He does not smoke or drink at all. He does not eat a bunch of unhealthy foods. If we go to McDonald's, he'll usually get a salad. In short, he is one of the fittest men I know. And just look at his pic in the sidebar. He is hunky.
But since fall, his good cholesterol has gone down and his bad has gone up. We just cannot figure this out. He says it wasn't a mistake; he asked them to do it again, and the results were the same. I don't know what to think.
If anyone has any advice out there, I'm listening.
