    It's the coconut oil. My LDL dropped from 275 down to 165 when I cut it out. Also, eat more meat for satiety, cut out the nuts and coconut oil entirely for now. A little cheese should be fine as a garnish, just don't go inhaling a block a day.

    At 5'4" you can easily start your meals with a good 10 ounces of meat, then sides of veggies, ferments, some fruits, etc. I highly recommend a "steak and eggs" style for rapid loss, but with occasional starchy root tuber supplementation to keep your gut flora healthy.

    the buttstuff...never interested.
    Tremendous worms of a swarthy nature pursue me across the sandy blank sky. I stop to think. What the devil AM I up to?!

    I'm no expert, but from what I've read/seen, imho your HDL is excellent, as are your trigs.

    Your LDL appears to be calculated (rather than actually measured), which is apparently standard practice for initial blood lipid panels as it's cheaper.

    It also looks like they've used the Friedewald calculation, which is flawed as it is thrown out by trigs under 100. This formula would calculate your LDL as 219.6 (look familiar?).

    Here's a handy calculator that shows what your calculated ldl should be using the more accurate Iranian formula. This formula gives you a calculated LDL of 168.8 :-)
