I'm scheduled for a fasting VAP cholesterol test tomorrow morning at 9am.
It's presently 3pm the day before and I didn't bring enough food with me to work, and I ended up having 2 packs of peanut M & M's.
Will that skew my VAP cholesterol test?
How sensitive is a VAP cholesterol test to foods eating in the last 3 days vs. the last 3 months?
Is it measuring fats circulating in the blood at that moment? If so, wouldn't it be very sensitive to foods eaten very recently?
Thanks for helping me understand this better, Mike

You're paying for a VAP test, and you eat M&M's? In all sincerity: you need to get your priorities in order.
But, you may choose to think about it this way: if you regularly eat 2 packs of M&M's on occasion, the VAP test will be giving you an accurate picture of your stats, regardless.
... also, just for the record: peanut, crunch, or regular old M&M's are not paleo. ;-)

For some reason, the add comment isn't working (nor the ask question button when I was trying to log this question on my account).
Greymouser: I'm logging my food, tweaking the amount of fat, etc. to create satisfying meals. Unfortunately, my lunch didn't have enough fat or protein and I really needed calories, so yes: I made a bad decision with the M&M's.
It's soo much easier to make good decisions when not hungry -:)
The question was if I'm been pretty good paleo wise for 2 months, and had bad food the day before the test, does that affect the results.
