What about cholesterol?
When I told my wife i was starting this diet and she say all the fat and butter, she asked “What’s going to happen to your cholesterol? Isn’t it going to balloon up?” I don’t have an answer for her.
For most people not much happens, except for an improved cholesterol profile (more of the “good” HDL cholesterol, and lower triglycerides (a good thing too). For a smaller minority, LDL and total cholesterol may rise significantly, but even then the good changes are seen too.
Red meat and dairy!
Watching documentary film ’What The Health’ on why we shouldn’t eat meat and dairy!
What are your thoughts on this?
How to get full when I can no longer consume fat?
Been LCHF for over a year and a half. For the last 3-4 months, my body has gone into an unexpected fecal dump mode 97% of the time ANY fat is consumed. I don’t get satiated. What do I do to become satiated, if I can’t consume fat anymore?
Fat is necessary to eat on a low-carb diet, at least long term, to get satisfied. If you can’t eat fat you can’t stay on a low-carb diet unless you have a lot of body fat to lose.
You may want to see a doctor regarding your new problems with eating fat. I’m not sure what the cause may be.
