My lipid panel just came in. The results do not look peachy. Here are the stats:
Total cholesterol 309
HDL cholesterol 104
LDL (Calculated) 201
Cholesterol to HDL Ratio 3.0
Look at that LDL. It's sky-high, and my doctor is concerned. Should I be worried? Here's a sample of my daily menu:
4 eggs 1 tbsp of added fat (either butter, EVOO, or coconut oil) 1 roasted beet
6oz of a cooked protein (either chicken with skin or beef) 2 cups of melange of roasted cauliflower, carrots, and swiss chard. 1 tbsp of added fat (either butter, EVOO, or coconut oil)
Snacks during the day:
1 piece of fruit (e.g. one grapefruit, one apple, or one nectarine) 2 boiled eggs
Pretty much a variation on what I had for lunch.
Thank you very much for any and all input!!!
