    So all this eating fat wont contribute

    to high levels of cholestrol in the body? I have inherited high cholestrol and was put on lipitor . I started taking satins about 20 years ago and about 1 month ago ceased all medication as it was giving too much muscle cramps , spasms etc especially at night when trying to sleep! Should I be taking the lipitor again if I am to consume most of my calories from fat?

    Be honest here, have you researched this diet at all?

    Who says high cholesterol is necessarily a bad thing?

    Which is why I gave you a link to primal 101 to something you posted on Saturday. Have you read through it?

    *flames the n00b* Mark has the definitive guides. Read those. Griff has the cholesterol primer. Read that. Come back when finished.

    To answer your question Odar, yes, it will contribute to high cholesterol, at least in my case it did. I followed the conventional wisdom of eating up until February or March of this year. My cholesterol numbers were "perfect" according to my doctor. After eating PB for 6-8 weeks, eliminating grains, eating more fat, meat and eggs, my cholesterol skyrocketed, even the bad LDL. However, my HDL remained the same.

    So, yes, eating this way will likely change your lipid studies. However, much of what Marks concludes is that is not necessarily a bad thing.
