Hi Guys,

Did anyone listen to the interview on Robb Wolfs Paleo Solutions podcast?

Chris was on point again and made some interesting points about the amount/type of fat we should be eating.

Here's a link for you all: http://robbwolf.com/2012/09/25/chris-kresser-episode-151/

Regards, Ninds

I too thought it was a great podcast. Here are the four "red flags" Chris talked about. If you have one or more of these, Chris suggests you should look more closely at your cholesterol (e.g. via an NMR test):

  • total cholesterol (TC) > 290
  • HDL < 40
  • ratio of TC/HDL > 4
  • triglycerides > 125

There's a transcript of the podcast (PDF) for folks who don't have time or don't like to listen to podcasts.

I heard in an interview with Dr. Tom Dayspring that the FDA has given LipoScience the green light to develop smaller machines that they'll license to other labs to do the NMR lipoanalysis. When that happens, the price of the test should drop a lot.

Thought it was fantastic. When I have a little cash saved, I'm planning on getting Chris's HCAP. He's actually in the midst of getting it certified for CEU/CMEs. I love it.
