How many of you guys use HRMs and what's your opinion. I am asking because I just went through a complete physical and some tests (colonoscomy and scope down the throat for an acid reflux problem) which came out fine, but, I all of a sudden have high colesterol (went from 190 to 270 in 2 years). Doc has me on meds and diet (the diet sucks, no pie ) So two questions
1. Would a HRM be a good investment? What would it tell me except that my heart is about to blow?
2. I am guessing some of you have the high colesterol problem, so what do you eat to refuel after a ride. My normal cheeseburgers and beer are a thing of the past
