I was recently diagnosed with very high Cholesterol (I'm only 29). I was put on meds right away and told I could try diet and exercise but the meds were more important. Needless to say I would rather put more emphasis on natural remedies. And my vegetarian best friend has encouraged me to change my eating habits to be mostly vegetarian/pescatarian. But I find that I end up eating a lot more carbs than really is probably good for me. I would love to learn all you can tell me about Cholesterol lowering foods.

My wife and I just started our "healthy eating" plan on New Years and we visited your store for the first time this week. We were impressed with the affordable options, friendly service...and everything we tried on the hot & cold bars were delicious! Plus, we found the olive leaf complex that we'd heard about. We're newlyweds and now that I've got a new job, we're hoping to adopt better habits. This is a great one-stop shop and the first time in a long while that I haven't been in such a rush to get out of the store. Thank you, Whole Foods! (my wife thanks you, too:)

My resolution as a college student is to not live off Ramen and pizza! I've come to understand how hard it is to be a health conscious individual in the land of meat and potatoes.

I eat mostly raw, unprocessed food and feel great. I love green smoothies and soups and salads. Avocados and nuts are my staples!

I love the fresh produce at Whole Foods. As a broke college student, a gift card for groceries can save me from a week of PB&Js .

My New Years resolution is to pack my lunch. Stopping by Whole foods to stock up on delicious and healthy lunch opptions will keep me out of the fast food lines. I love the options that are ready to grab and go like the greek salad and yellow fin tuna salad!

I want to increase the fruits & vegies that my family is eating. Packing a variety of lunches is my biggest challenge.

I've always been a vegan at heart, but to please everyone else I would eat meat. It was more convenient for them. I tried not to think about where it actually came from. I saw a pig in the back of a truck being hauled off somewhere the other day. I have just decided to do what's best in my heart. There are so many new products and recipes out there now. I'm on a quest to de thrown my self as the queen of horrible cooking!

We are trying to eliminate processed foods, sugars, and most grains from our diet. Focusing mostly on veggies and lean meats as our staples.

It began after I was hospitalized for 2nd degree burns. I changed my eating habits to assist my healing and it was a speedy recovery. I've just moved to California and eating healthy is a lot more expensive but still necessary, however it's not easy to do on a small budget. I want to continue to eat right for "myself" and show others it's easy, fun and taste amazing.

My husband and I have found that working five jobs combined makes healthy eating rather difficult. However, we strive to cook together when we can. When we cannot, we focus on making sure the food we put in our bodies can sustain us for the work we do. When we go to the grocery store, we focus on shopping on the outside aisles, and we try to avoid shopping in the highly processed aisle. Our grocery store has spent a lot of money highlighting foods that are sustainable and less processed. We also shop at our local Whole Foods when we can. This year, we got an organic, free range turkey for Thanksgiving, and made a completely organic Thanksgving (with the exception of the crescent rolls). It was delicious!! I also work out four days a week and remember the good fuel makes for good running! Happy New Year!

With a new baby in our lives, now just 5 months old, we have decided to change our eating lifestyle. Beginning in 2011, we have decided on a healthier approach to eating inclusive of organiz fruits and vegetables, hormone free meat/poultry and more fish in our diets. We believe beginning this new culture with our baby girl will help her grow into a healthy child with positive eating habits.

In an effort to be healthier, I make all of our meals and baked goods using all-natural ingredients so I know everything that goes in them. I'm always looking for healthier recipes and ways of cooking.

I am urging my family to try new foods in the New Year. We recently had teff, an Ethiopian grain, and millet, a ceral grain. Both were delightfully yummy!

My daughter is now able to eat regular food so I want to make healthy food for her sake and so I can be a good example.

Eating healthy requires a lot of efforts when you have children because there are so many processed and prepackaged products out there. I would love to have more whole grain, healthy veggi and fruit snacks in my pantry.

I have recently told by my doctor that I need surgery in a few months. I unfortunately have to go on medication for 3 months beforehand that will throw off my hormone balance. I am currently looking into a raw food diet. Need help!

Since I don't really eat meat,I want to start eating healthy foods oppossed to grilled cheese sandwiches and cheese quesadillas. I have no idea what non-meat things there really are that I would actually like. My motivation- I need to lose about 130 pounds.

I don't eat fast food (ever) and bring my lunch to work everyday, so I know what I am eating. I don't keep bad foods in the house, because then they would be eaten. I do allow myself indulgences (vegan desserts) at least once per week. At least I know it's not loaded with cholesterol. :)

I confine myself to shopping only around the outer edges of most grocery stores and avoid the processed food aisles. You can't go wrong with fruits and vegetables!

We'll start the year by making soups at home and freezing them. We're also going to bake brownies and/or cookies for the freezer. This partly an economic choice, but also a healthy choice. Our soups and treats are much healthier options than what we would get off the shelf. Plus, it just tastes better!

We've been eating way more grains, brown rice and veggies with almost no red meat. Eating lots of fish and chicken and trying new recipes has made a real difference in stamina and lots of fun in the kitchen.

I want to eat more "clean" foods and stay away from foods that are overly processed. Happy New Year!
