    Lightbulb Blood test results after 2 months mostly primal?

    Primal Fuel
    Hi all, this is my first post but I've been a lurker for a bit. I read the primal blueprint around six months ago, followed it for a couple months, stopped and restarted a couple months ago. I am following diet only, though I do have an active job as a server/bartender and walk my dogs daily for an hour. I am 24 and a female :-) before this I ate pasta daily, and felt like crap. Anyway I just got a blood test done and these are the results!

    8hr fasting glucose test- 84mg/dl
    Cholesterol total- 142mg/dl
    Triglycerides- 32mg/dl
    HDL cholesterol- 41mg/dl
    LDL cholesterol- 94mg/dl

    Also my blood pressure is 101/64. Any input on the numbers would be great- I don't have a family dr and the walk in clinic was plastered with a giant food pyramid on the wall so I never booked an appointment to go over values!

    Thanks :-)

    Yep, your doctor will be happy with them too

    If you want to raise your cholesterol (particularly your HDL) then you should eat more animal fats.

    If you want TMI, Griff wrote an excellent cholesterol primer (in my sig).
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

    After only 2 months your numbers would be expected to be quite low. Have them tested again after 4 months.
