Atkins & Increased LDL
thanks so much for all this info. there was great advice both places. and after reading and speaking to my doc, i'm going to stick with atkins but tweak the diet. i'm going to eat more chicken/fish and a little less beef and eggs I think. i'm adding benefiber for fiber to my drinks and limit my bacon and see how that works out... maybe too much of a good thing isn't so good Smile i hope after another 3 months my cholesterol will level out b/c this diet seems to work best for me,esp the lack of carb cravings!

Atkins & Increased LDL
thanks all. i did post at and got some really good info there too. still waiting for colette to respond, but the community there and here stated much the same and it makes sense. I'm going to revisit this with my doc and hopefully buy another month or two since my heart is one of my better organs Smile i'll start looking at the cholesterol counts but i don't know about phony eggs!

Atkins & Increased LDL
I've been on Atkins for 3+ weeks and been doing pretty well. I've stayed in Induction and did not deviate from plan. I had my bloodwork done and my LDL skyrocketed! Doc said if he were just seeing me, he'd put me on cholesterol medicine immediately! However, he knew I was on Atkins recently and said I had to change up whatever is causing the LDLs to increase. I'd like to stay on Atkins, but I wonder if there are some proteins I need to stop eating (like eggs everyday!) or fats that can help remedy this situation. Someone suggested South Beach but I'm pretty invested in this diet, however, not to the extent of having to take a pill! Also, has anybody experienced this as well?

Changed from Stevia to S&L (limited to only 3 packets!), only 5 iced coffees, started iced tea (no carbs), and i think it made a difference. My goal is ...
