Over the years here on Live LCHF we’ve been asked ‘The Cholesterol Question’ more times than we can count.
I’m following or thinking about following the LCHF/Banting Lifestyle but I am concerned that it will impact my cholesterol numbers negatively, what should I do?
In a nutshell, that is the question that bugs most people about this way of eating. We thought we would make your life a little bit easier and put all the cholesterol related podcasts we’ve created on the same page to help you navigate this tricky topic as best you can.
Below are some of the podcasts that we believe will answer some of the most common cholesterol questions. The first one we wanted to share had to do with the particle size of cholesterol and why that is important.
The reason people are concerned about their cholesterol is because they believe it is an indicator of a possible heart attack. On this podcast you’ll discover why that is not necessarily the case.
Another interesting discussion that related to cholesterol was about the quality of fats that we eat.
For many years eggs have been vilified in the fight against cholesterol. Are they the real culprit though? This podcast with Prof Tim Noakes will set those fears aside.
On this podcast, Dr Gary Fettke chats in depth chat about medical practitioners and what you should be testing for, and what you shouldn’t be testing for when it comes to your cholesterol.
When it comes to cholesterol there is a LOT of misinformation about. One of the major issues is the information you are not being told. This is an important message to hear.
In the end it is important to really simplify the cholesterol debate and look at the difference between good cholesterol and bad cholesterol.
Many people are also conflicted when it comes to the Banting/LCHF Diet and cholesterol. It is easy to get caught up in the weight loss benefits and then be concerned that your cholesterol numbers have shot up.
