I got my lipid panel results back and my 3 year experiment is complete but I need your help.

first off I want to say thank you for reading this. for the past 3 years I have been doing a lot of reading and following people who I think are great such as Mark Sisson, Gary Taubes, Robb Wolf & Chris Kresser just to name a few. I am 38 years old 6'4" 205 lbs

I'll get to the point, back in 2008 I decided to lose body fat and gain muscle by going on a low fat diet which included cutting back on the good fats, lots of lean protein, lots of old fashion oatmeal in the morning, whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, fruits and vegetables & we had low fat dairy whenever I wanted. I average a ratio of 40/40/20 2000 to 2500 calories a day and worked out 4 days a week (mostly strength training) I lost weight and felt good but I wasn't putting on that muscle like I wanted to so I decided to change things up.

For a little over a year I leaned more towards paleo (except for pre & post workout meals) my meals now are like 40/20/40 avoided wheat (no gluten) lots of good fats, Coconut oil, no possessed oils, lots of Whole eggs, bacon, avocado, unheated olive oil to name a few. Grass fed meat when I can afford lots & lots of greens, sweet potatos, moderate fruit and on occasion had vanilla Haggen Daz. I maintained my body fat and packed on more muscle during this time...I currently feel great & strong.

NOW I NEED SOME OPINIONS BECAUSE I'M CONFUSED!! Should I continue with the high fat or was I better off on my low fat diet from a health stand point??

Here are my results, please let me know what you think.

Non fasting results 11/20/2011

Cholesterol 223 mg/dL

Triglyceride 42 mg/dL

HDL Chol 88 mg/dL

LDL Direct 117 mg/dL


Fasting results 4/15/2010

Cholesterol 146 mg/dL

Triglyceride 48 mg/dL

HDL Chol 68 mg/dL

LDL Calc 68 mg/dL

I had my Testosterone tested last week as well it's 323 ng/dL.

Thank you for reading

Well this is good news seeing that I consume insane amounts of lard, butter coconut oil & heavy cream not to mention 2 dozen eggs a week.

Can't compare fasting to non-fasting.

Fasted or not, those results are pretty good. HDL & TG both great, LDL in middle. If I got those results I wouldn't change a thing. Also there's a lot of studies out there on cholesterol and mortality that indicate your previous results maybe were what should've been a cause for alarm. See here for a good list of links to some of these and good summaries: http://healthydietsandscience.blogspot.com/search/label/Cholesterol%20and%20Mortality

I agree, fasting vs. none fasting is like checking tire pressure with a warm vs. cold tire, just not the same.

I don't think you can compare the results since the first was fasted and the second was not.

Non fasting tg of 42. That is amazing! Both total to hdl ratios are below 3, both excellent. My choice would be for the one with the higher HDL.
