Good News Following Bp Basics
Just wanted to share....
I have always had a high overall cholesterol number. My glucose has also needed improvement. I have not made huge changes, (have always eaten a lot of veggies, some fruit and watched the carbs) but I did start eating a lot more pasture-butter, coconut, olive oil and avocado. I stopped eating all breads and wheat products, and cut out as much sugar as possible, using stevia instead.
Today I had a panel done. My overall cholesterol number dropped to 247 (yes; that is a drop). But my triglycerides are way low (they say anything under 150 is good; I was at 62) and the HDL is way high (anything over 60 is great; I was at 79). The LDL is still borderline at 156, but I have been told the ratios have improved so much, I should just keep doing what I am doing. yea!
My glucose before had been close to pre-diabetic at 112. They say "normal is 100 and under"; I am now at 70.
BTW, I still have my good dark chocolate at night. My treat I have not given up.
So all this is wonderful news. Thank you Bulletproof. Now, if I could just lose weight. I feel great, my panels are good, but the weight just does not come off. You name it, I have tried it. I did lose 40 lbs a few years ago, but couldn't keep it off; I was starving. I got to where I couldn't even walk up a flight of stairs. What to do..... grrrrr......
