One Month On The Bulletproof Diet And Got Surprising Lab Results
So glad to know these forums are here! I started on bulletproof on 08/28/2016 and have already lost 9 pounds. I'm pleased with the results, and can feel the difference in inflammation. I'm a 53 year old female and got my bloodwork back today and was fairly freaked out when my cholesterol was 308. Supposed to be under 200. Triglicerides, and HDL are normal, but LDL is 236 (supposed to be under 130. I have read in other places that the cholesterol does sometime elevate and that this is not such a big deal, but it seems pretty high! My last measurement was about a year and a half ago and was 236. I do plan on seeing my doctor later this week. He is a naturopath and is familiar with Dr. David Perlmutter's work since he is local in our community, so he will NOT recommend Statins. I know this because I switched to him, because I wanted to go off them about 10 years ago or so, and he thought it was a good idea.
One article I read somewhere else actually recommended stopping the bulletproof coffee, but actually supported the diet. It also suggested further bloodwork to measure something pretty specific that is expensive and usually isn't in a typical blood work up.
I'd appreciate any feedback-
