Blood test results
I finallly had the opportunity to get some blood work done after a good solid six months of Paleo/Primal. Keeping in mind the 80/20 rule as I transition into the full lifestyle, here's the results. What do some of you more experienced folks think? Forgive any mispells!
Total Cholesterol 202
HDL Type II 16
LDL Pattern Type A
C Reactive 0.3
I've lost 25 pounds since I've focused on this Paleo/Primal thing. I've always exercised but subscribed to the conventional systems for eating and fitness and found myself at 40+ slowly but surely gaining around the waist no matter how long or how intense my workouts were. I completely overlooked a bodybuilding show I did almost twenty years ago when I got my bodyfat below 6 or 5%, and without realizing it, followed the low carb thing with great success for three or four weeks. Funny how it hits me now that I look back!
I'm 5'8" and weight 170 with a 30" waist. I'm pretty happy with the results on the outside and want to continue getting smart about what's happening on the inside! I'm a 43 year old male.
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
I am not an expert but I think that your homocysteine is too high.
Yeah, that's the one the caught my attention too.
