Dicesr's Journal, 16 January 2013

Total Cholesterol: 241
HDL: 51
LDL: 141 (too high)
Non-HDL: 190
CHOL/HDLC Ratio: 4.7 (too high)
Triglycerides: 247 (way too high)

I did a quick search for triglycerides and it seems that the advice I got from my family doctor to pursue low carbohydrates to lower tg levels is atypical. I was a bit surprised by it myself, I didn't think a family doctor would casually recommend this, but reviewing literature on PubMed the idea seems solid. I'm trying to pursue a high fiber, high monounsaturated fat diet with liberal use of spices like curry, cinnamon, oregano, and cocoa powders. Lack of carbs inevitably means higher level of fats and protein, so it'll be an interesting experiment. I'll find out when I retest my lipids in April.
