Are you worried that high fat intake will raise your bad cholesterol? Seventeen years of test results are below. I am now a true believer that eating correctly – low-carb, moderate protein, high fat – impacts health in a positive way. You just can’t argue with success. My only wish is that I’d had my blood work done in May 2010 before I started Atkins. The yellow highlighted cells indicate results that are outside of the ideal range.
From March 2005 to January 2006 I tried statin drugs. I will never take them again. The muscle cramp side effects were horrendous.
I lost my husband to brain cancer in Oct. 2006. He was diagnosed 3 1/2 months earlier, after which my weight fell at an alarming rate because of stress. Interesting that my cholesterol levels five weeks later on Dec. 5, 2006 were pretty great. I much prefer low-carbing to stressed starvation, however, to positively affect my totals.
