Her weight is somewhat above normal for her height and age which her doctor is concerned about. She goes for casual walks once or twice a month in her neighborhood. Her doctor has encouraged her to engage in more regular and vigorous physical activity. Ms. Bell would like to get more exercise but not sure how to do this. She thinks she may be too old to exercise more vigorously.  Ms. Bell is on medication for high blood pressure, a statin for high LDL (bad) cholesterol, and takes several nutritional supplements, including a couple of herbal supplements.

Monday

Breakfast: Oatmeal, banana, some other fruit, and whole milk.

Lunch: BBQ Beef sandwich, coleslaw, deep-fried french fries, and lemonade.

Dinner: Baked Lamb, baked potato with a lot of butter, white rice, soda, and strawberry sherbert
