    Vote! Coconut oil and LDL

    Primal Fuel
    Do you eat a lot of coconut oil? Is your LDL high? Just wanted to see!

    If you do vote, please let us know how much CO you do eat. Thanks!

    I eat it daily for the most part, and my LDL is high...

    I cut out coconut oil and my LDL dropped by 60 in three months....
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    What's the deal with all the coconut oil? Doesn't it kind of defeat the purpose of paleo? Isn't coconut oil just another refined product?

    I eat quite a bit of coconut oil, just got a blood test and my LDL was 2.16 mmol/L which seems to be 83.53 mg/dl. I have at least 2 tbsps a day virgin as is, make coconut bark and eat that on and off and use it mainly in cooking. I feel good on it.

    Now 95lbs and holding.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

    I averaged a few Tbsp of coconut oil and a few oz of coconut chips/week when I had my lipid profile tested. 86 HDL and 176 LDL here. 66 trigs.

    My numbers are almost exactly like yours sakuragirl. So what does it mean really? Even my paleo doctor was a bit alarmed with my "high" LDL....

    Is he surprised or concerned? If he's surprised then I as a patient may be concerned that they don't understand the full spectrum of results one can encounter on a HFLC diet. Have they or you considered a more thorough lipid panel like VAP/NMR?

    He says maybe next time he might order it. Right now I am trying to figure out the internal inflammation -though I have no external physical signs. My CRP went from a 7 to a 1 but it should be lower. And other inflammatory numbers are high.

    So what is your theory on high LDL? I do eat two tablespoons straight coconut oil a day - I figure good ketones for my brain
