Hi guys, I have just gotten a blood-test done.
I have been following some sort of the Paleo diet since December 2010. I say some sort of because in times I ate beans and lentils as I was travelling. I always ate lots of monosaturated and saturated fats during this half year and a lot of eggs and meat. For the last 2 months I've been following a closer Paleo-diet (no beans, dairy included, full fat) with lots of saturated fats and fewer carbs. Ocassionaly I ate pre-soaked lentils and quinoa and sweet potatoes. I ate like 2-3 fruits a day. I take no supplements.
I'm quite skinny (always been) and estimate body fat under 10%.
I've just turned 22 and I'm a male.
Here are some more details to the way I have been eating and habits:
-sleep is irregular but I almost always sleep between 8- 9 hours. no naps. habits not too much workout. ride my bike for about 15-20 km per week. doing sprints maybe every 10 days. im quite active though moving about. no stress ever. meditation daily. adequate sunlight.
-3-4 eggs scrambled in 1-2 rich tablespoons of butter or coconut butter.
with eggs either 2 tomatoes (fried), or 1 banana (fried with eggs) sometimes i put some olive oil over it after cooking that would be 2 -3 tablespoons
usually eat in the later morning when im really hungry.
sometimes I eat 300grams of quark (is like a really rich yoguhrt: for 100grams there is 10g protein, carbs 3.5g (3g in sugar), fat 8 g (saturated are 5g thereof)
i eat the quark with 1 banana and a quarter cup berries.
(rarely i eat this for breakfast)
salad with 1 avocado, lettuce, peppers, 2 eggs, broccoli, cucumber, wild salmon lots and lots of olive oil with vinegar
usually don't eat big lunch
meat every day.
around 250 grams of various kinds. mostly beef and pork and chicken (various parts) no offal because i cannot get it. also no liver.
fish: wild salmon around 250 grams or pollock at least twice per weak.
cooked in 2 tablespoons of butter
serve with broccoli raw, tomatoes cooked, onions with it, garlic, or spinach around 200grams of vegetable with it
or i eat sweet potatoes (orange kind) with it. about 2 big ones. i make fries with it and fry it in butter.
sometimes lentils with it (the red ones, i soak them for 15 hours) about half a cup
or quinoa half a cup
i snack a lot during the day (when i eat a small lunch) mostly on fruits: apple, pears, plums, banana (i don't eat more than 1 per day) sometimes carrots but not really often, or yoghurt as stated above, almonds, shrimps sometimes proscuitto di parma as a snack
i drink about 2 liters of water a day. drink nothing else except alcohol sometimes.. mostly red wine occasional beers.
-my source of carbs would be vegetables, bananas, sweet potatoes, quinoa, lentils (in this order)
-test was done about 5 hours after I ate 4 eggs with 250grams of shrimp in two full tablespoon of butter for breakfast. i was not hungry when the test was done.
-i haven't eaten liver or anyother offal.
all foods are organic.
Here are my lab results, please comment on it!
It's in German but I believe it should be understandable as the names are quite similar.
Somebody offered these conversions for the US:
Total 3.29 mmol/l = 127 mg/dl
Triglyceride 0.48 mmol/l = 42.5 mg/dl
HDL - 1.02 mmol/l = 39.4 mg/dl
LDL - 2.05 mmol/l = 79.3 mg/dl
