    Welcome to the club.

    The pattern of high LDL (-C, -P) of the large and fluffy kind, high HDL, and low trigs seems to be very common among people eating low-carb. Whether this pattern is bad for...

    Well... I am hesitant to defend mainstream medicine, but I'm not sure it's that simple.

    All the numbers are correlated, of course. Still, teasing them apart is not an insurmountable problem...

    If you really want to know your BF % you can do something like a DEXA scan which will be very precise. Otherwise, ask your friends who has a bodyfat-measuring scale -- they tend to be very common...

    23% BF seems a bit too high for 106 lbs on a 5.5' frame.

    On your blood panel you have high LDL cholesterol (likely the result of the predominance of fat in your diet) but you shouldn't worry about...

    I suspect that rather depends on what you shop for :-/

    I buy mediterranean EVOO at my supermarket given (1) It's a brand I know; (2) It's on major sale (typically, about 40-50%). It's generally...

    OK, I did a re-test recently. It's interesting partially because I had lipid panels done at two different places from the same blood sample (well, different vials but drawn at the same time). This...

    I've read the Griff primer. It is a primer. Things like Peter Attia's cholesterol series look more useful to me. Add Hyperlipid, LLVLC, Masterjohn, etc. to taste :-)

    All my ratios are fine....

    Yep, I will, next in line are tests for FH and for APoE status. On the other hand, none of of my immediate ancestors had unusually early heart disease.

    I guess we'll see.

    "Primal" is a very vague term. I have never eaten a Standard American Diet. Generally speaking, I eat lowish-carb with most carbs coming from fruits and vegetables. I avoid (not 100%) grains and...

    I'm more or less in the same boat. Had my bloodwork done -- all is excellent except for LDL cholesterol. And yes, I had a particle count done and it's high. Specifically:

    LDL-P 1905 (that's about...

    Anyone has links to the full text of the paper? Pop-media renderings of studies are notoriously inaccurate.

    Eggs have a lot of protein.

    Protein is insulinogenic.

    People have the strange idea that only glucose drives insulin. That is not nearly true. Protein is a very...

    A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    Well... that's debatable. In particular this study: http://www.nypcvs.org/images/MESA.pdf says particle size does NOT matter after you account for other factors.

    Um. You do know that fructose is not insulinogenic, right? Glucose (and protein) are insulinogenic, fructose (and fat) are not.

    I did this a couple of years ago when I was in a ... less-educated stage :-)

    The way it worked, I spent, I think, between a month and half and two months on a *very* restricted diet. All I could...
