Research / Re: Dietary fat causes inverse effect on cholesterol

Warren, I don't know but I historically consumed a lot of vC rich foods. No supplements though. I'm sure it goes up and down relative to the availability of fresh produce where I now live (Alaska) but I eat a lot of citrus, strawberries, and until recently kale, brussels sprouts, and other leafy greens. However, within the last year I've been on a potassium sparing diuretic and my potassium levels are at the upper limit so I've had to cut out a lot of foods high in potassium, such as leafy greens. The lipid history though was pretty consistent for many years prior to this potassium issue though.

CQ - welcome.

In this case - and I hate when I got this advice years ago - but I'd say to please just Message or visit your personal physician if possible.  Just to let them know of your new lifestyle and diet and to ensure nothing serious is going on.

I do doubt that it's anything serious but please keep us up to date with how you're feeling...

and WELCOME!      8)

The last time I had a 100% MEASURED lipid panel done a couple years ago, it confounded my doctors.

Total Cholesterol: 336
LDL-P: 3411 <--- No, not joking. It's almost to the point where they can't measure it.
LDL-C: 257
HDL-C: 67

But, my Triglycerides? Only 62

Before I went Paleo, my Trigs were well above 100 but my cholesterol total was only slightly lower (appx 325)

I also had a coronary calcium scan done around the same time as the lipid panel above. Scored a 0 (zero), which is as good as it gets. I'm in my 50s and have the arteries of a teenager. However, they cannot explain my outrageous cholesterol numbers, or my chronic hypertension, my chronic fatigue, or chronic pain. I'm absolutely convinced though that they are ALL connected somehow.

Hmm, interesting.  It is just a number.  One to keep mind of but not many ailments are worth throwing drugs down your throat immediately.  Like he says, all drugs have side-effects.

I always say sugar is worse than fat anyway to people in day to day life.  I mean, it's true.

Article and, especially, video showing that total and LDL cholesterol levels vary inversely with the previous three day average dietary fat intake.

Introductions / New to Paleo looking for some advice

Hello Everyone,

please allow me to introduce myself.

I'm CQ Laowai (Chongqing Foreigner) I am a 35 year old male from Sheffield in England but live in Chongqing China.
I reached a point in my life where I didn't recognize myself anymore. After graduating university I was 110kg, 230lbs, 17+ stones (measurements regularly used to weight people). Then I started working out and losing weight. I came across Paleo by accident and recently bumped into a friend who has lost over 40lbs in 4 months on a similar diet. So I thought I would give it a go.

I'm in my fourth week now and already down 2kg. But I have noticed recently I have been having lots of stomach pain. Is this normal starting out on this diet? only I'm worried in case it is something serious. I looked online and read it could be drinking too much water (I drink 2-2.5 litres a day).

I am looking forward to meeting new people and getting tips and maybe a buddy to help each other on this diet. Which I must admit am loving, so easy to get fresh vegetables here I buy everyday with my wife then just go home and cook, so convenient and tasty.
Makes a nice change than eating the Frankenstein food from the West.
yours in fellowship
CQ laowai
