Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can help me with a concern about my cholesterol. First, just a few stats.... I'm a 50 year old woman, 5'7', 134 pounds. My weight has been about the same for my entire adult life, I've always been active and I've always tried to eat well (admittedly by CW standards). I started living by the Primal Blueprint a year and a half ago, and I absolutely love it. Today however, I got a report back from my doctor about my cholesterol. HDL is 65, so fine. But my LDL is 164. I told my doctor I was on a paleolithic type nutrition plan and she just raised an eyebrow as if to say.... "I think we know where to lay the blame", because of course, the recommendation is to stop eating saturated fats. I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to proceed. I can't even fathom going back to some sort of low fat, calorie counting "diet", and yet, 164..... it's not good. Any suggestions?
No announcement yet.
I need your advice.... my cholesterol is out of whack
