i have a serious problem with plaque buildup, so i have been a low glycemic diet. i have lost about 15 pounds so far. but i don't care about losing weight. i am concerned about removing plaque from my coronary and carotid arteries. i cant afford to get a coronary angioplasty or a carotid atherectomy, so i am doing what i can to avoid stroke or heart attack. i would gladly suddenly inherit 200 pounds of fat if it meant i could have a COMPLETLY CLEAR cardiovascular system.
i have been consuming primarily soy milk, low sodium gia russa pasta sauce and spagetti squash.
How did you find out that this is an issue for you? Is it a family history, or have you already had problems? (Sorry to sound so nosy; you just seem awfully young to be symptomatic.)
