yeckdedboot Posted February 13, 2013 Share Posted February 13, 2013 I just finished my Whole 30 a few weeks back and am feeling great. I lost at least 10 pounds (I haven't been this light since my early high school years), and just feel good. Yay! But... I just got my cholesterol levels checked with interesting results: Total cholesterol: 283 (terrible -- anything over 200 is deemed "bad") HDL: 100 (great -- anything over 60 is deemed "good") LDL: Don't know; the machine didn't give a reading since my HDL was so high. Clearly this has to be contributing to the high total cholesterol number. I'm trying to figure out what this all means. Is this good? Is this bad? Should I be changing anything about my diet based on these results? Has anyone else had similar results, and what have you done to address them? FYI - I found an interesting set of articles on cholesterol on the Perfect Health Diet site, the primary suggestions I pulled out were [a] increasing carb intake to over 60 grams/day, and upping mineral intake (most notably, copper, but also magnesium, chromium, iodine, and selenium).
