    I had no idea that was the number. You would think this would make people question the medications we are putting people on.

    It's not just "the medications." It's the intensive, focused care that results in discharge. Some of it finds better alternatives, sometimes just the very act of intensive love gives patients a new start.

    I should add:


    "It's like blaming firemen for a fire, or blaming a bandage for the wound, and saying "if we take away some firemen, the fire will die out," or "if we take the bandage off the wound, the wound will heal without help" (even though it's usually a wound that needs stitches in order to close up and heal). It's overly simplistic, it's a junior-high-school-level mistake, and it makes no sense."


    And eating carbs is like throwing gasoline on that fire and expecting it to go out.

    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Thanks so much, Griff!!!

    I'm looking at a pre-employment physical for the Sheriff's Department soon. The blood work should be interesting, as I am not eating my quota of donuts ;-)


    ETA: Mark: I nominate this for a sticky, at the very least!

    Griff. Wanted to post some info here. This is my snapshot of progress. On the surface it looks like I am heading backwards. My LDL is climbing and my triglycerides are climbing from 8 months. Not sure if it's because of alcohol since I know I've consumed more in the winter months. Exercise is about the same, not chronic cardio. I'd consider the last 6 months being 70-80% primal with a grain free approach. NOt super strict as in July of 09. Not to make this about me, but might be some fodder to notice. MY question, when does a "diet/lifestyle" effect blood cholesterol?


    "6 Months of grain free, some alcohol, and lots of meat + veggies DIET"

    Feb 2010

    Total Cholesterol: 232

    HDL: 69

    Tris: 104

    LDL: 142

    VDL: 21


    "Low-Fat; High Carb; 6 meals a day-DIET"

    July 2009 14 hour fast

    Total 203

    Triglicerides: 90

    HDL: 66

    LDL: 119


    "Dan the bread maker heaviest ever-DIET"

    November 2007

    June 2006

    Total: 196

    Triglicerides: 123

    Great Post, but I have a general question, how would you improve your HDL levels?

    Ann:

    Seems to happen all by itself when you follow PB ;-)

    Griff: thank you tons for doing a bunch of "leg work" for the rest of us, & putting it all in to plain words. I can't wait to compare my results between this yr's & last's when Health Fair comes to town. Last yr as a "healthy vegetarian", this yr mainly PB.
