That's what my doctor told me. I really don't know what to eat. There seems to either fat, or salt, or sugar in stuff. And the labels trick you. They state a low content but in the top corner they say "serving size 3.5". I've cut the soft drinks down to one 16 oz a day, rather than 4 or 5. That is a ton of sugar gone. I had to cut beef and pork out because it runs my blood pressure up. I've been buying these frozen vegs and microwaving them in the package. Its the packages that have the light seasoning in them. If anyone has any suggestions on what to eat, i'm all ears (or eyes). If I have to follow a recipe forget it. I need something I can throw in the microwave.
