    Help with VAP test results

    Primal Fuel
    I was hoping some people here could me make sense of my recent VAP test results. For some context I've been on a primal diet with daily IF (10PM-2PM) heavily influenced by Bulletproof thinking (high quality fats only) for 18 mths. In that time, I've seen incredible results and feel great. My doctor's first reaction to the VAP results was concern, though not, dramatic concern at my LDL levels. I have a history of heart disease in my family and we tend to run high in cholesterol counts. That said, would love to see what people think of these results. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

    We can't see the results...can you copy and paste or host somewhere else? The approval otherwise may take a while.

    Your results look almost identical to mine my VAP. I posted my HDL test today when I used to get the VAP. My cardiologist suggested I take a statin to lower LDL but I refused. I think as long as your tri's are lower and mostly pattern A, you should be OK. I'd try reducing most processed foods to get the tri's lower.

    Good luck!
    During breakfast today, Abby asks, "How would this juicy, fat, sweet blackberry taste on top of my bacon?" I said it would taste BerrySwine...;-P

    Looking good but not great. HDL could go higher and trigs a bit lower

    Thanks, everyone! My diet, I thought, was really great. It looks like this, almost every day.

    8am-2pm, black coffee.
    2pm, large salad with greens, cabbage, avocados, hard boiled pastured eggs, and any other vegetable around. dressed with olive oil and balsamic
    5pm-10pm, grazing (lots of olives, some nuts), and a dinner of grass-fed/pastured protein and sauteed green. Some dark chocolate and/or coconut butter for dessert.

    Since I started this routine, I've dropped almost 25lbs and have gone from waist size 34-35 to 29.

    unless youre eating a huge amount of meat at dinner there is no way you are getting close to enough calories... If you wanna increase HDL you are going to want to get more grass fed butter, and fat into your diet. Do you exercise?
