LDL and coconut - testing my body!
Alright, so the last time I had my blood drawn my LDL was really high.
Chol - 315
Trigs - 60
HDLD - 83
LDLD - 190
Calculated LDL - 220
That's after many months of regularly using coconut oil to cook, and using eggs to sop it into my belly.
Now I'm going to replace the coconut oil with tallow for the next few months (Three? Maybe six? Or both!) and have it drawn again. I won't be changing anything else about my eating, just my primary cooking fat. Could be awhile, hang tight!
That LDL just seems goofy high, even if the ratio IS within normal limits! I keep seeing people with 1 to 1 HDL/LDL and close. I know toying with these numbers isn't that critical. But my health insurance has begun to track my lipid numbers already. It's only a matter of time before I have to pay a higher rate for having "bad" numbers...
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.
