This is simply not true. Cholesterol as a risk marker has been heavily, heavily researched.

Good luck with defining a "good" cholesterol number. There are many interpretations, and not much science.

my suggestion is to make a commitment to eat healthfully and then do it. eating clean for a month so you can be rewarded with some healthy numbers does not a healthy person make.

fasting is the number 1 silver bullet for cholestrol.you should in corporate extended fasts, intermittent fasting and calorie restriction into you life.

eat a diet of high quality grass fed beef and organic green vegetables, and your numbers will be perfect

In terms of risk markers, your lipid panel is not ideal. The TC/HDL ratio is high (under 5 is ok and optimum is 3.5 or so) and the LDL-C is also high. Also, two weeks is not really enough time to move the numbers very much. Its pretty much impossible to conclude anything else about your health given that there is no other information, but given these numbers, I would suggest an NMR test to get a better picture. Once you have the NMR or at least a repeat lipid panel, please come back and post the results along with some more information about your health including other blood results. Then I can make some dietary suggestions if you like.

Paul over at PHD has some good science based info for ideal numbers. I recently read that between 200-240 is ideal for total cholesterol. If you're low carb that could be why your LDL is a bit high.. again see PHD website.

When you get to the site choose LDL/Cholesterol tab on the right.

Can you post a sample day of eating? Mine are trig 52, LDL 72, hdl 79. I keep 40/30/30, instead of doing high fat so idk if that affects it.
