'Eating Your Way to Low Cholesterol': How I Lowered My Cholesterol Without Drugs

NARRAGANSETT, R.I., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeannie Serpa, a noted author and artist, today announced the publication of "Eating Your Way To Low Cholesterol", a comprehensive cookbook of 225 cholesterol lowering recipes and snacks that are easy to prepare.

The release of the book was timed for the holiday season when people are less concerned about diet, and is just in time for New Year's resolutions that people can actually keep.

The publication contains a complete diet compiled over four years of research and taste testing. With 225 recipes over 336 pages, the publication includes chapters covering: What To Eat and What Not To Eat, Exercise, Weight, Children and Cholesterol

The book has been endorsed by two doctors and a registered dietician. The foreword was written by Carla Cesario, MD. "I would recommend this book to all my nutrition clients with and without high cholesterol," said Cindy Lewis, MS, RD, LDN.

"I was stunned when my physician said my cholesterol level was 314. Just three weeks earlier my sister suffered two successive heart attacks. My younger brother had already survived seven heart attacks, and my mother wore a pacemaker. Because high cholesterol and heart disease are hereditary, as a mother of nine children and grandmother of eighteen, I was worried for them as well as myself," Serpa said.

The author first tried the recommended low cholesterol diet from the American Heart Association. After six weeks with no improvement, her physician prescribed Lipitor, which made her legs ache unbearably. When her physician ignored her complaints and insisted on maintaining the prescribed dosage, Jeannie took matters in her own hands.

"After thanking my doctor, I hung up the phone, flushed the remaining tablets down the toilet and embarked on some serious research," Serpa said.

Ms. Serpa studied charts, digested statistics, interviewed patients, and scoured nutritional labels on food packages only to find innumerable inconsistencies. She realized why thousands of people would rather opt for a drug than wade through this conflicting information.

"I started developing recipes, testing and retesting. I wanted delicious meals and snacks that would lower cholesterol and be quick and easy to prepare. Once I started eating generous amounts of the foods that are known to lower cholesterol, my level began to drop," Serpa said.

Meanwhile, her physician ordered another blood test believing Jeannie was still taking Lipitor. At the follow up appointment, the physician congratulated the author and credited the prescription for lowering her cholesterol count by 96 points.

"Imagine the doctor's surprise when I said I flushed the pills and lowered my cholesterol by 96 points all due to my own diet," Serpa said. "I cannot even begin to describe the elation you will feel when that level starts to descend," she added.

The author lowered her high blood cholesterol an additional 29 points in the next six weeks for a total of 125 points, all without the aid of drugs.

The book is published by 1st World Publishing and is available on by clicking or by calling 401-792-0064.
