_With a vivid memory of the cramping caused by the red yeast rice and Fresca fresh in my mind, I cautiously decided to reintroduce the red yeast rice a full week later. However, being an impatient sort, after five days I took the plunge. I so wanted to continue stabilizing my high cholesterol and triglycerides without prescription drugs and felt this was the best way. Rather than jump into taking the recommend dose of two a day, I took one for a week watching for a reaction. Nothing. I took one before I went to bed with 1000mg of niacin, my CoQ10, and a fish oil capsule. After three more days, I upped it to two capsules, crossed my fingers and went to bed.
No cramps through the night; no cramps in the morning; I decided to continue taking two capsules and expect no more difficulties.
Now, what else can I do? Oh, yeah ... that dreaded thirty minutes of aerobic exercise daily ... now, there is a challenge. I can easily commit to taking a couple pills before I go to bed ... I can easily give up meat and dairy products ... but exercise? When whomever can give me a twenty-four and a half hour day, that blasted thirty minutes escapes my grasp. I have read all the tips and tricks to pull it off, but nothing really keeps me focused. Got an idea? If you do, please feel free to comment ... how do you get daily exercise?
Stay tuned for my thoughts on exercise.
