cholesterol levels now higher after 1 yr

Recommended Posts

My wife and I started whole 30 about a year ago.  We were _very_ rigorous about it the 1st 6 mos.  2nd 6 mos not so rigourous but still much less sugar than we previously ate, and still no wheat/gluten and generally much lower refined carb levels.

We really liked the 2 eggs for breakfast (and sweet potatoes) plan, but I worried about the cholesterol.  Also, generally our meat intake was higher that it had been (although the majority was not beef).

However, science rules, so we had an NMR lipo screen done and we both came back with significantly higher cholesterol, TC about 15% higher.  That's a lot.  That's a lot for a multiple year increase, it's really a lot for just 1 year.

I'm still sorting through the data to figure out how bad the news really is, since the expanded range of data you get on an NMR lipo is going to take me a while to get through and understand.

So, trust, but verified.

Eating the extra eggs (and extra meat really) is not a "don't worry about it", sort of thing.  Go have your cholesterol tested, and track it.

We're going to drop the eggs and I'll report back in 6 mos, and we'll see what happens...
