Hi went Low Carb High Fat on September 15th. (less than 50g of carbs a day).
I had my blood work pulled EXACTLY two months later. The results...
Weight loss: 20 pounds! At it was a different type of loss than in the past. Lots of good body composition changes.Total cholesterol went up just a bit from 155 to 179. Considering the HUGE amount of fat I consume. it is surprising that this had such a relatively small jump. It's also still quite deep in the safe range.More importantly - and more incredibly... I haven't seen these other numbers this good in 15 years - and haven't felt this good in 15 years.Triglycerides went down from 228 to 164
HDL (good cholesterol) went up from 26 to 33
LDL or bad cholesterol went from 46 to 33
My doc was so impressed he's asked if I would be willing to come in and share my story with his staff.
I know that many of you think differently - and many of you will get violent at the idea of giving up carbs
- but I am CONVINCED carbs in general are band for the average human.
My wife started at the same time and has also experienced amazing body composition changes. We spend a lot less on food too.
EDIT: Some other interesting information.
1. I have HALVED my dose of T to 100mg a week.
2. All of my weights went up. Last week I attempted maxes for the first time:
Dead Lift= 300lb (I did 2 reps)
Squat = 315lb (I did 5 reps)
So you can ABSOLUTELY put on muscle and build strength on a ketosis diet - I've proved it.
