shesgonepaleo Posted December 4, 2013 Share Posted December 4, 2013 Hi there, I just wanted to have a bit of a vent and hopefully get some advice at the same time! I am 28 and have had high cholesterol readings for the last 6 years. Total cholesterol hovering around the 6.4 mark (I'm in Australia and my research shows that we read cholesterol differently to the US??). In 2012 I really cracked down on what I was eating, and increased my exercise even more and a few months ago I started eating Paleo. I had my check up the other day and the results came back at 7.3! The biggest increase since I have been having it checked. I should add it is hereditary from my mothers family and so with that in mind, along with my age and my healthy lifestyle, my Doctor freaked out (and me in the process!) and I have been put on Statin drugs for 3 months at which point I have another blood test and we will re-evaluate. A few people have since told me to cut out coconut oil all together amongst other things. What I would love to know from you wise souls is if there is anything in the Whole30 (which is basically how I live everyday, with the odd Paleo muffin or similar, thrown in on a weekend) that I should avoid to help decrease this genetic cholesterol issue! Many thanks in advance!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
