I have had results of my blood tests back now and the doctor said my inflammatory marker was high? (he said it is 8, and it should normally be 5) He said this means i may have infection in my blood?
He didn't really explain very well though and used a lot of medical jargon that i didn't really understand... What does this mean?
Recommend you have a daily intake of 1800 calories because you are exercising, too. The slower you lose the weight, the easier to maintain the weight. Eat low fat meats (chicken, fish, loin of pork) or non-meat sources (soy products, nuts), low fat vegetarian combinations (rice & beans, pasta & beans, low fat cheese & pasta), low fat and substitute dairy products (1% milk, low fat/fat free yogurts, low fat soy milk/soy yogurt), use plant oils, non trans-fat margarines, and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Eat daily high fiber breads and cereals (oatmeal) and limit ‘junk’ foods. Portion control is important and here some general tips = ½ cup for all starches and vegetables; one piece of fruit or ½ cup of small fruits; 1 cup for low fat dairy products, and only 3oz of low fat meat or protein substitution a meal (only 6ozs total a day). Hoped this helped you.
