I have been wondering how long it takes to drop the cholesteral levels and trigs down to what I'm seeing reported here by others. Mine are through the roof, I would love to go in for a check up and shock my doctors, who keep wanting to put me on their drugs, which I don't want to take.
CHOLESTEROL 280 used to be around 350
TRIGLYCERIDES 297 used to be over 400
HDL 52 used to be 42
LDL 169 used to be 189
VLDL 59 used to be 75
don't have older results for these two only current
CHOLESTEROL/HDL RATIO 5.0
Considering that my cholesterol and trigs used to be much higher. I've managed to lower them on the Gluten Free Diet over the last 3 years because of my husbands Celiac Disease. However I am wondering if they will drop faster now that I am eating paleo, and how much faster? They have been stuck at the above for a while. I want to see them change for the better. Loosing weight would be a BIG plus too, lol! According to my height I should weigh around 135 for my age group. That means I need to lose 40 pounds. I still have a muscle hourglass shape, it just has some fluff to it right now that I would love to see go away for good! Besides exercise any tips on burning excess belly fat?
