Our expert says:
High-protein diets are also usually high-fat diets, which can have a negative effect on cholesterol. Because your hubby has 3 problems (raised cholesterol, hypertension and overweight), I would recommend that you both consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will have to work out individual diet prescriptions for you and hubby that address these multiple problems. Doing regular exercise like going for walks together every day for 30 min or more will also improve weightloss and help to control the blood pressure.
