For those who've been Paleoing with starch (yams, sweet potatoes, potatoes, yuca, taro, etc.), how high did your triglycerides climb? This assumes that before you incorporated starch to your diet, your were either LCing or VLCing. Most people who do so have trigs under 100. Some who do VLC have their trigs close to 50.
I'm curious how high your trigs would climb. Would it be over 150? I tend to think not, since that's going up pretty high. I think those who do SAD and lowish-carbs are at around 150.
The larger question is: is it important or meaningful? If your trigs go up, then the VAP test is more likely to show your LDL being composed of type B rather than type A. The absolute amount of your trigs is supposed to indicate fairly reliably what particle type we're dealing with. Or does this still hold, since you're eating something that's arguably "safe".
Also, your HDL/Trigs ratio goes down and, arguably, that is bad.
Previously, when I was VLCing, my trigs were 70. I would like it to remain there but is it really bad if they go up?
UPDATE: my Trigs climbed to 93 from 70 on a 150-200g carb diet. My HDL climbed to 65 from 57. My LDL stayed about the same: 108 from 106. My Lp(a) is 7 (before 6); my CRP is 0.4, and my SR=1.
Conclusion: Except for the 33% Trig increase, no measurable increase in inflammation or other risk factors. Moderate carb Paleo did increase my HDL but that could be due to increased exercise.
