Default Test results!!

I've been doing the low carb/high fat thing for about 8 months now and, while I've been losing weight, the part of me that was programmed to think "cholesterol and fat = BAD" was always in the back of my mind making me question what I was doing.

I had to buck up and get my blood tested today and was super excited to find that nearly all of my numbers have improved!!!

My total cholesterol: 219 (down from a high of 249)

HDL: 54 (up from a low 48)

LDL: 140 (down from a high of 165)

Triglycerides: 126 (down from a high of 174)

VLDL: 25 (down from a high of 35)

My ratio: 4.1

So the high fat, don't worry about dietary cholesterol plan works like crazy for my body. My numbers aren't perfect but I'll take them! Incidentally, my worst numbers came when I was working a low fat/low calorie weight loss plan. Who knew?
