    Partial Primal Gets the Numbers Down

    Doc put me on the statin treadmill about 6 years ago, but even medicated my cholesterol totals were usually up around 300. Back in January I made some fairly consistent changes in my diet based on the guidelines I read here on MDA. Nothing like 100% adherence, but I avoid grains, legumes, processed foods and bad fats/oils. I try to stick to fresh fruits and veggies and lean meats. I eat a lot of chicken and salmon.

    For 6 months I took crap from my children, spouse and mother about my bacon and egg breakfast 3 times a week. "That's going to kill you!" (As my mother was coating a head of cauliflower with a cup of Hellman's...ugh!!!)

    Had a check-up at the doctor yesterday:

    Total Cholesterol: 138
    LDL: 67
    HDL: 47

    Cut my statin dose in half.

    Hoping to ditch the rest of the meds by December. Time to increase the exercise routines!

    Frighteningly low numbers. Statin-induced for sure!
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
