Hey everyone, I've had a recent cholesterol test, and I'd like some advice, since what I"m doing doesn't seem to be working... Jul 02 Jul 03 Cholesterol 6.1 5.7 LDL 4.2 4.0 HDL 1.4 1.2 Chol/HDL 4.4 4.75 Trig/HDL 0.85 0.83 Trigly 1.2 1.0 I've been on a low fat diet for nearly a year now (around 1500 calories a day, 15-20% fat) and these are the results.. I've lost maybe 5 pounds, despite running 20 kms a week, and going to the gym 4 or so days a at a time.. I exercise so much more now, so I'm surprised that my HDL went down. I talked to my doctor about these results, and I think I'm going to try to get off this low-fat diet, and switch to something higher in unsaturated fats (maybe shooting for 30% or so daily).. what does everyone think? Most of the literature I have seen shows pretty astonishing results when fats are added back into normal diets.. One benefit is usually lower LDL and higher HDL. I'd appreciate some advice, as heart disease runs in my family, and I'm trying to beat it (I'm 26). THanks.
