Acer75 Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 It's been a while since I did whole 30, last January/February to be exact. Actually I did a Whole 60. Since that time I have been on and off the wagon of staying compliant to down right falling into the trenches. I have been traveling for work a lot since June and super huge stress levels to add to it..my routine exercise has also suffered and I am feeling/seeing the effects.. I am planning to jump back on the wagon full force and get myself feeling better again but I recently had my annual health screening and I wanted to see what people thought... I am curious, when eating Paleo should put much weight in the cholesterol "normal" ranges?? The nurse practitioner told me I need to eat less meat and more whole grains (yes, the medical community is still hanging onto that notion) According to the doctor, my numbers are good.. but are they?? I would like to hear what Paleo professionals think. Female- 37 165 lbs(about 20-30 lbs heavier than I should be) Fasting glucose 79 (should be below 85.. I personally would like to see this lower.. is that reasonable? Total Cholesterol 173 HDL- 56 (range is apparently 40-59) LDL 108 (this is the bad stuff and it's supposed be less than 100 but not greater than 129 before the MD starts talking about meds which I won't do) Triglycerides- 48- (should be less than 150) Cholesterol to HDL ratio is 3.0- this is within the low risk range of 2.2 to 5.0) Thanks for any feedback.
