John R.'s Step One Foods Story: An athlete who improved LDL cholesterol by 80 points
"I'm an athlete who watches my diet closely, so I was shocked when my annual physician revealed that my LDL was 175.
When my physician wrote me a prescription for Crestor, I was incredulous. What happened to trying lifestyle changes first? Without skipping a beat I put myself on two servings of Step One Foods a day: Oatmeal in the morning, Smoothie Mix in the evening.
My LDL improved by more than 80 points. I'm a physician and I did not believe it was possible, so I tested my cholesterol at two other facilities. The tests confirmed the results were real and I was thrilled."
Health gains: After 30 days on Step One Foods, my LDL cholesterol improved by more than 80 points.
What I like most about Step One Foods: Trying lifestyle first instead of going straight to pills.
My favorite food: Oatmeal and Smoothie Mix.
