The Cholesterol Network System

5,400 views Add as favorite
The engineer Dave Feldman tried the ketogenic diet and felt fantastic… Until his blood tests came back, that is. Apparently, his cholesterol had gone up a lot.

He decided to dig deeper into this and started some fairly extreme self-experimenting. Feldham may have taken more advanced cholesterol tests on himself than anyone else in history. What he has found is highly interesting for anyone wanting to know more about cholesterol on a low-carb diet.

Apparently, you can drastically lower your cholesterol, by eating MORE fat. And that’s not all. Here are some of the things we discuss:

    It’s somewhat relieving to see that I’m not the only one who experienced being on ketogenic diet, feeling amazing, only to find out your cholesterol has skyrocketed!
    I went for annual physical, feeling healthy , in great shape physically and the results of my blood work were astonishing. LDL came back at 259!
    I didn’t begin a ketogenic diet to lose weight, in fact I’m 5’1 and 107lbs and everyone has always said, “look how skinny you are, you have nothing to worry about”, turns out, skinny doesn’t mean healthy. I made the change in my diet about 3 years ago to feel good, not necessarily to look good and was proud at 52, feeling better than ever and also in great shape , or so I thought.
    I’m a little scared at the moment about these results and look forward to learning more about all of this and maybe get the question answered, WHY??
