I should of realized this before I started justifying my "cheats" as 20%(which really turned into more like 40-50%). I've got about 10-15 pounds to lose. Once I lose them, then I'll start thinking about 20%. But that makes complete sense that my body can't handle any 20% until I am fully healthy again.Once you are at or pretty close to goal weight, then you can relax and get on the 80/20 deal, but at first, with numbers like yours, I'd get it under control first and play with it second.
So my cholesterol isn't high? As in, nothing is wrong with it?No. What matters is the ratio between your LDL and HDL. Your ratio is 191/89 = 2.15.
Here's your cholesterol ratios:
Chol/HDL ratio (Target <5) = 3.33
Trig/HDL ratio (Target < 4.6) = 0.90
LDL/HDL ratio (Target < 4.3) = 2.15
You have nothing to worry about on that front.
